    hmmm, haven't tried shooting with f2.8 in low light situations before...since most of the time my "low light" situations are indoor (home) where 50mm is quite tight for practical usage.

    I'll wait till BBB takes over me and make me get the 17-50 or something like that.

    Eh, I shoot so many times in low light with my Tamron 17-50 f2.8, then decided to upgrade to kit lens with smaller aperture. LOL

    Buay tahan the AF of the BIM version of that lens.

    We have to convince uncle skystrike not to get the tamron first. Heh.

    I'm using a 28mm f2.8 btw. Hehe (not using AF) I like OOF.

    I just use flash in low light. Haven't really had the need to shoot lowlight outdoors yet that I can't bounce. lol >.<

    Anyway, haven't encountered a situation where I need f/2.8 yet. Even with my 35mm prime I haven't felt the need to go below 3.2. My demands aren't that hard yet. lol.

    Edit: ok misread the question. lol. lemme edit first ~.~

    According to wikipedia. f-stops are in the convention of AV = f/[sqrt(2)^n]. so if n = 0, AV= f/1; n = 1, AV = f/1.4 etc. Copypasta:

    Code:
    Including aperture value AV:
    AV	−2	−1	0	1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8	9	10	11	12	13	14
    f/#	0.5	0.7	1.0	1.4	2	2.8	4	5.6	8	11	16	22	32	45	64	90	128
    
    Typical one-half-stop f-number scale
    f/#	1.0	1.2	1.4	1.7	2	2.4	2.8	3.3	4	4.8	5.6	6.7	8	9.5	11	13	16	19	22
    
    Typical one-third-stop f-number scale
    f/#	1.0	1.1	1.2	1.4	1.6	1.8	2	2.2	2.5	2.8	3.2	3.5	4	4.5	5.0	5.6	6.3	7.1	8	9	10	11	13	14	16	18	20	22
    
    Typical one-quarter-stop f-number scale
    f/#	1.8	2	2.2	2.4	2.6	2.8	3.2	3.4	3.7	4	4.4	4.8	5.2	5.6	6.2	6.7	7.3	8	8.7	9.5	10	11	12	14	15	16	17	19	21	22

    how convincing


    I think right now the 17-50 is just a BBB thought. May eventually succumb to it. or maybe a Sig 30mm 1.4
