C&C - which portrait will you choose?

I decided to give Tamron 70-200 a try and here are some of my thoughts and results.

I like the build and focus speed, not so sure about IQ and sharpness.

Need help to decide if it's worth to keep it or save for the Nikon 70-200...

All images are re-sized to 25%.

The two images from the Tamron are probably the sharpest ones out of 50 images I shot with it.

The AF accuracy (or my hand-holding) are not consistent. I know that focusing with D800 requires to be more precise and wondering if I should just get used to the new lens.

Thank you all for replies!
