The lens is superb on a nikon d800,sharp at 2.8 and by f4 edge to edge, a lot sharper than my old Nikon 28-70 2.8.
Almost all the reports I have read have it as sharp as the current Nikon 24-70 2.8 plus it has VC.

I have it on my Nikon D7100 and it is indeed very sharp. Focus is also fast.

I'm not using the Canon model, but I've been using this lens for months (see the blog in the Totally Tamron section). It's sharp enough for all practical purposes, and I've never had an issue with the focus (my camera lives on continuous focus with back-button override).
The stabilizer comes in quite handy, as it's brilliantly executed. It's a chunky monkey, but you soon get used to it, since it's such a full featured lens.
