I'm wondering, are you looking for a mid-range lens? Scott ( my husband)has the Sigma 17-70 that he uses for an all around lens. When I was looking for one I looked at the Nikor 18-55 but it was pricey. Scott bought me a Tamron 17-50 mm 2.8 throughout for Xmas. It was a great surprise. It is quite a bit less expensive than the Nikon lens. We had to cannibalize a focus gear for the lens. But a plastic gear sleeve from ikelite works both for my husbands sigma and my tamron after grinding to match the gears. Not the same gear sleeve btw.
My photography may leave something to be desired but the lens is pretty good and I'm happy with it. For what it's worth!!
