Nikon 70-300 or Tamron 70-300?

Looking for a lightish 70-300 as carryround lens (don't want weight of likes of 70-200 f2.8 for the few occasions need longer focal length, use sigma 50-500 for bird and wildlife - but heavy!)

Read reviews of Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR and Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SP Di VC USD and generally the reviews seem to favour the Tamron, has anybody on here tried/own/owned/used both and can offer an honest opinion. There is quite a difference in price here in the UK between the two.

Using Nikon D7100

Thanks
