I used that non-VC Tamron a lot while working for a media house and I was not exactly impressed - either by image quality or focusing speed.

This is of course a very subjective point - your standards of speed and quality might be different than mine.

Btw, I've written a short review about that lens:

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to say that focus speed compared to the 18-105 is about the same probably (or even a hint slower), although in lower light the faster lens will give you less hunting, obviously
