If you are going to work in low light, you want the most light gathering capabilities - and that means 2.8.  The extra stop could mean the difference between shooting at 1/60s and 1/120s, and that might be anough to make a better shot, or increase your keeper rate.

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers
