I just got the Sigma 17-50 OS. Already have the Nikon 16-85. Sigma will be my indoor/party lens and Nikon outdoor/travel.

The Sigma seems sharper than the Nikon. It also has nicer bokeh, imo. The color cast on the Sigma is brighter, and that takes some getting used to (-1/3 ev adjustment for now). No complaints about build quality.

Unless you want the length, get the Sigma. It would be a harder decision if the rumored N16-85 f/4 ever materializes.
