How much better is this compared to the Nikon 18-55mm kit lens?

Orders of magnitude better. Pretty much ANY lens is better than that 18-55, including the $200 35mm 1.8

MUCH better low light performance. Much better depth of field (sexy Bokeh and all).

If you have the money, just buy it.

To be fair, Nikon's 18-55 kit lenses are pretty decent quality compared to kit lenses of some other manufacturers. But, they are still far from this lens.

Bought this one a few days ago. Very good lens for using indoors. As good as a prime lens in most cases with the convenience of not needing to changing the lens. From a 18-55 it will be a recommended upgradde. I have been using a 35mm DX 1.8 prime lens (cheaper) but in some places one cannot move back enough to take the picture. The only downside for this sigma lens is the added weight.

I looked up reviews online and they state that there is not much of a difference. Other than it giving you the ability to take pictures in lower lighting situations, I would say stick with the kit lens unless you are a pro photographer.

Good lens, slightly below the Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS USM in terms of sharpness but definitely a serious contender. Not to mention, it's half the price.
