I personally have the Tamron, and have never shot the Nikon version.

However, I'm happy with the Tamron.  I've used it for taking football pictures of my son.  Outdoors, with good light, I've had very good results in the 200 - 300 range.  I've gotten good sharp images(in my opinion) at 300 mm.

So, I can't tell you if the Nikon is better, but for the price differential, I went with the Tamron.  I bought mine when they had the $100 rebate, so I got it for $375.  For that price I thought it was a steal.
