I had the Sigma 17-70 OS version for about a year before I switched from DX to m4/3 and sold off all my Nikon gear (except my wife's D40 and kit lens).  I can strongly recommend it.  It compared nicely to the discontinued Nikon 18-70 it replaced.  I consider it more of a multipurpose lens than the very good 18-105 others are recommending because of its close focus and greater magnification, which makes it a better  close-up/almost-macro lens than the 18-105.  If you need the range, the 18-105 is sweet but I needed the close focus and greater magnification and as a bonus got a touch more speed.  I loved that lens and almost kept it for the D40 but my wife balked at the extra weight.
