Is the Sony 18-200 worth $350 more than the Tamron 18-200?

I know the Tamron ($550) has been out for a while and is probably older technology. It's also lighter a little smaller. Not sure about focusing abilities or edge-to-edge sharpness comparisons.

I'm a prime shooter primarily, thinking about a travel all-in-one solution and something with longer reach than my primes. Not a pixel peeper nor do I make large prints.

So is the Sony ($900) a lot better than the Tamron?
