The bokeh can be a bit ugly when the subject is at about 50cm and there are a lot of lights in the background, but getting closer to the subject improves a lot the bokeh. As for the sharpness I think I have a good ticket, here is one pic at 17mm f/2.8 with the D200:

The picture of the woman is nice but I get the same IQ with my Tamron 17-50 @f2.8
The picture of the landscape is really poor for a 1200€ lens. Sorry to say so.

Maybe (probably) the Tammy is slower in terms of AF but the Nikon seems totally overpriced.
