Tamron 28-200 quality issues and sample variations

Hello. I am looking for a new walkaround lens and a complement for my Tamron 17-28 f2.8 for some time now. Now that Tamron released 28-200 f2.8-f5.6, it seems like a natural choice to me.

The reviews praise its image quality and I think it would like to be compared itself with the Sony 24-105 G than the 24-240.

Have you noticed any issues with Tamron sample quality and variance. I've seen some bad apples in reviews. I know for sure that the 24-240 was marred by this along with an already dismal performance in image quality.

This could be just my perception but some samples by one reviewer seem better and comparable to G, GM lenses while the same from some others seem pretty average at comparable apertures and focal lengths. Although, overall most are much better than any other full frame high zoom lens.
