I hear the Nikon is just sharper.

Yes you heard very rightly. I do not have hands on experience with Nikon 18-200 but I'm using other Nikon lenses (18-55 VR, 35mm DX, 85mm DX Macro) and I also have Tamron 18-270 DiII VC PZD. Quality of Nikor snap is much much better than Tamron - its incomparable. But if you want a all-in-one lens (with 15X zoom, though at 270 its soft, upto 240 or 250 is OK) then Tamron is a good one provided you are ready to compromise.
