17-70mm lens (Pentax or Tamron advice please)

Hi all

I'm looking at replacing my 18-55 kit lens on my K-50. This 17-70 looks like the perfect replacement, and the reviews on both are favorable.

What are your opinions on the two?

Native or third party? Which is sharpest?  Which focusses better? Which just feels better and gives that warm glow inside?
