IQ - Tamron 200-500 vs. Nikon 80-400

Quick question - at the long end of their zoom ranges, which has better quality, the Tamron 200-500 or the Nikon 80-400? I need to rent a super-telephoto lens that's not too heavy/expensive and can take reasonably sized filters (so the Bigma is out).

VR doesn't matter - I'll be shooting on a D7000 on a tripod with relatively long exposure times.

Thanks in advance.
