The 17-55 is my walk around lens. I love it. I tried the Sigma OS version and had problems with exposure on my D90.

What I wanted to say was, you mentioned using the flash to take indoor pictures. Something to note is, the lens is a monster... the diameter on the lens end is very large and the on-board flash of a camera will leave a large shadow over what you're trying to photograph if you're shooting wide.

If using an SB series flash, it won't be an issue. Only with the camera's built in flash is there a problem.
