The Nikon is better optically.  The Tamron has stabilization and is very close, plus a little lighter and more compact.  And while I have no info on it, I'd bet the Nikon has more robust weather sealing as well.

Which set of features appeals to you the most?  So long as the Nikon is in excellent shape, that would be my pick between these two.

See my plan (in my profile) for what I shoot with. See my gallery for images I find amusing.
