Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM II Lens v Tamron SP 70-200mm F2.8 Di USD

Dear all who have experience with both lenses listed in the topic.

Which is sharper @ 200mm wide open? If Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 HS APO G is sharper wide open @ 200mm than the Sony, I wouldn't be surprised if the Tamron is.

If I assume the Sony has faster & more accurate AF (do correct me if I'm wrong), how far behind is the Tamron?

I currently own the Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 HS APO G & don't think I'll ever sell it but wish to add a lens at this focal range that focuses more silently & has shorter minimum focusing distance.

Please help!
