Tamron 24-70 on 5D MKIV?

I'm considering buying the newest version of this lens, choosing it over the Canon options for the image stabilization. However, the two extra stops of the Tamron over the Canon F4 version only matter if the Tamron is sharp wide open.

So, how good is the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 on the 5D? Is it sharp enough wide open to be worth it compared to the Canon F4 lens? And is the stabilization good enough to matter on this lens?
