Re: Sigma sharper, but no OSS, right?

I guess the other difference is the Sigma has no OSS, so you must shoot at a relatively quick shutter speed or it'll look less sharp. Whereas the OSS on the kit lens will compensate for some shake. Is this assumption correct?

Yes, but the amount of gain depends on how steady your hands are in the first place and in any case OSS is worthless with short focal lengths if your subject is not static.

The lack of OSS on a 30mm lens that's perfectly usable at f/2.8 is a non-issue.
