Sigma 18-35 F1.8 or Tamron 24-70 F2.8

I am facing the "difficult" decision of which of the above lenses to purchase next. My camera is a D7100 and i PLAN to go full frame in the future but cannot say when (definitely in the next 5 years). I currently have the 18-105 F3.5-5.6 and 70-200 F2.8. My shooting style is mainly landscape/streetscape/seascape, nature and occasionally candid

Reason why I would like the Sigma: very sharp, very fast and a zoom range that i enjoy shooting but it is a APS-C sensor only lens and not a large zoom range

Reason why I would like the Tamron: sharp, fast, larger more handy zoom range (less lens changing) and is a full frame lens which means its future proof, BUT it is not as wide as the Sigma or my current 18-105

So which lens would be best for my style of shooting, camera?

Thanks
