Tamron 15-30 G2 - any reviews??

I had the original Tamron 15-30 f/2.8, and I was very pleased with its performance. I preferred it to my 14-24 Nikon because of the extra reach at the long end and especially because of the effective vibration control. However I dropped the Tamron in the Southern Ocean while on a location shoot and it died. I wish to replace the lens, but in Australia both the "G1" version and G2 version are both on sale with the newer lens priced $500 more than the original, and $500 more than the Sigma 14-24 Art. I would like to see a review of the newer G2 Tamron to see if it is significantly better than the original, especially because of its higher price. Any information on this would be much appreciated.

Gary.
