sell my nikkor 55-200 and get Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4 DC HSM or stay with my 55-200 to compensate with my kit 18-55 for my D60.
Nabibilang ko palng sa dliri ung gamit ko ng 55-200 since I always shoot events and landscape.

I think it depends on what you need sir. based on your profile you like to shoot landscapes and you will get the most benefit from the 17-70 plus the 2.8 opening from this lens can be bring the creativity in you. The only problem I can think of is that it overlaps with your 18-55.

The Sigma 17-70 will only open to 2.8 at 17mm and only 4.5 at 70mm.  I'd rather sell the 18-55 (and probably the 55-200) then get the Sigma 18-50/2.8 EX DC macro HSM.  This way you get 2.8 the whole range.

FYI, 17-70/2.8-4.5 DC Macro HSM is around P17,500 and the 18-50/2.8 EX DC Macro HSM is around P22,500.

I suggest to get an ultra wide angle lens if your after the landscape. As for the events you can stick with your kit. :)

Sir if you must have a 2.8 lens I'd suggest getting a tamron 17-50, correct me if I am wrong but it is a constant 2.8 opening from 18mm to 50mm. Sell your kitlens  (around 4k) then keep your 55-200, or sell both, then get a flash to suplement your lens for events. If you're used to the wide-angle- zoom (18-55mm)  for your landscapes then the tamron should be a very good alternative.
