Hello all - Nikonians newbie here.

Let me preface this by stating what I've got, and then explain my dilemma. I'm a D70s shooter with three lenses:

AF-S Nikkor 18-70mm 1:3.5-4.5G (kit lens)
AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED
AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G IF-ED

I bought the two VR lenses when both were back-ordered (figuring I'd keep whichever came first...and they arrived two days apart) and have come to realize that I simply do not need the 70-300. I'm thinking that I'd like to have a faster, wide angle lens.

I tend to take a lot of indoor, natural light shots and get by fine - but here's my quandary - should get a lens that goes as low as f2.8? Specifically, are there any benefits to having one in my bag over the two lenses I've chosen to keep?

Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

Matt
