Tamron 45 1.8 VC vs Nikon 50 1.8 AFS-G

I have the Nikon lens and I have been wanting to upgrade my 50mm for my D4 for something with better quality glass. By pure accident I just ran across the Tamron 45 1.8 and many say it is worth the cost for such low price.  I guess is not a new lens and has been around for some time, I just never noticed it.

I'm wondering if any of you here have both lenses and do you happen to have side by side samples from these two lenses? I did a quick google search but nothing really comes up and I'm really wondering how these two lenses compare both at f1.8.

Also I can't seem to find that website (darn it I can't remember the name) where they show all sort of lens brands and tests charts for sharpness, distortion, vignetting, bokeh, etc.

Can any of you provide samples?

Thanks
