Canon 50mm 1.8/2 versus Tamron 17-50 2.8 VC

Hello,

I have the Canon 7D and alreadythe Canon lens, which is really ok for the price. But I recognized, that it is not very sharp at 1.8 and that it starts getting sharp at 2.5. So I considered eventually the Tamron lens, if it would already be as sharp at 2.8 as the Canon at 2.5, or close. Any experiences?
I do photography and also videography.
Can you help me maybe with comparison pix or reviews?
So, which one is better wide open?
I just use them wide open.

Canon EOS 7D
