Actually with a camera capable of good high ISO ability like his, the low light results aren't as dependent on a superfast UWA. Any of the UWAs today will get you similar results - quite good and lots of fun but not quite up to the quality of a good prime when wide open...all are a little better stopped down.
No reason not to shop Nikon, Tamron, Tokina, and Sigma UWA options and see if you can get a good price on one. I do lots of night and low light work with my Tamron 10-24mm and have been very pleased. I have friends with both the Sigma 10-20 and the Tokina 11-16 and both are very happy as well.
