It seems complex answer:
For best IQ on crop body a good copy of Tammy is enaugh.
On FF nikkor 28-70 is good but 24-70 much better at corners.
My Tamron on FF is worse than new sigma 24-70 hsm (and better than sigma on DX).

I tried 4 pcs of 28-75 of which 1 had decentering, 2 had slow motor speed and only one was free of sensible defects.

While 28-75 useable at f/2.8 it definitely better at f/3.3, good at f/4 and excel at f/5.6.
So I use it as walkaround with D300s.
