Tamron seems is soft at tele side

I just checked this DXO 24-70L II on 5DIII vs Tamron 24-70 VC on D800 . Something interests me. It seems Tamron 24-70//2.8 VC is as sharp as Canon 24-70L/2.8 II at 24-35mm side at f/2.8 wide open, but becomes noticeably softer especially in edges from 50-70mm.

Personally sharpness is more important to me than resolution difference as I don't print more than 20x30" or only view at my Dell 2713H monitor. If you need to print to 40x60" D800 will show its obvious resolution advantage but hardly can tell difference at 20x30". Sharpness especially in edges/corners at wide open makes Canon 24-70L/2.8 II "peerless performer" claimed by my trusted DXO tests
