Default Do I really need these two Tamron lenses?

I had many Tamron lenses over the years and love them.

Right now I have these two lenses to go with my D5300:
Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3

My question is will this lens Tamron SP 17-50mm f/2.8 benefit me?

Most of my shooting is landscapes and wildlife/birds.
A lot of shooting is in low light.
See my website:

The above are backups to my main outfit and for friends that go on some trips with me.

If you're talking about the unstabilized version, it runs rings around your 18-270 where their ranges overlap.

It's not the VC version

The unstabilized Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 is way sharper than the 18-270, and has less distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration, so your landscape photography will benefit greatly.
