It's better at all the other things than it is at sports. Really, how good it does in different scenarios is based more on the lens and the ability of the photographer than the camera itself. A great photographer has the ability to make the most out of the equipment, but that's like saying Tiger Woods is a great golfer, even with the $150 Walmart clubs.

If you want low light then you'll need to buy an external flash or large aperture lens. If you want to do sports then you'll have to look at a lens with a fast focusing motor and if it's indoors then a large aperture. If the light is good and the action is not too fast paced then the kit lens with another lens, like the 55-250mm IS, would satisfy almost everyone. It's when the scenery changes to low light is when it becomes harder to shoot and usually a lot more expensive in lens or accessories.
