Re: Tamron 24-70 vs. Nikon 24-70...Worth the price difference?

I have not used the Tamron but from the test shots I have seen the only area where I saw a noticeable advantage for the Nikon was in bokeh quality. The Tamron has an onion ring pattern to its bokeh which is not as pleasing. Also hard to find the Tamron on the used market since it is a recently released and third party lenses lose more value when bought new vs the Nikon version.
