Sigma 28-70 f2.8 Vs Tamron 28-75 G2 - optical quality and build?

I have asked between these two lenses before but frankly I'm still stumped.

I can get the Sigma 28-70 for £380 in a local used market and the G2 for about £650. It seems the Tamron is optically a bit better, properly weather sealed but heavier and larger.

With these price differences is the Tamron worth the extra for or would the Sigmas cheaper and smaller package be better?

I am asking again because these used prices really make a difference.

Many thanks
