18-270 vs 70-300

Is there any substantial difference in picture quality between an all-range zoom and a dedicated long-zoom, like the Tamron 18-270 PZD vs the Tamron 70-300 USD?

I noticed that the price of the two lenses is not really different, so even if I already have something in range 18-70, if they compared identical, I'd pick the more versatile 18-270.
I suspect the 70-300 would be sharper, anyway.
Can someone confirm?
