Nikon AF-S 24-120 f4 VR vs Tamron 35-150 f2.8-4 VC ?

Anybody used both of these lenses?

Nikon AF-S 24-120 f4 VR and Tamron 35-150 f2.8-4 VC?

I have used the Tamron and it is nice enough and sharp. It is released more recently and a bit chunkier.

The Nikon is an older release but is smaller.

I would be shooting on DX and the use scenario is indoors to cover either side of the 50-70mm focal length (I have a Sigma 17-50 f2.8 and Tamron 70-200 f2.8 (G1) and that overlap is often where I want to be shooting).  Mainly for shooting religious services but I have had a go with the Tamron for indoor sports and it performed better than I expected.

I hadn't paid attention to the Nikon as I had been looking at the Tamron for a long time.
The Nikon has the advantage of a bit wider.
How do they compare for AF speed and accuracy, and sharpness? VR vs VC? (though for indoor sports that is kind of irrelevant as already I'm trying to have high shutter speeds to freeze motion).
thanks in advance
