Sharpness: Wide angle lenses Tamron 17- 50mm 2,8 vs Canon EFS 18-55 IS

I did a comparison between tele lenses and this is the comparision between the Tamron 17- 50mm f/2,8 XR Di II LD (non VC) - which is about 280 € and is one possibility as an update to the compared Canon EF-S 18-55m f/3,5-5,6.

Hopefully this helps you to make your decision. As you may know this no lab quality, it is just my gear at home. I mean, the results may vary in your lab (:- )

To have not tooo many images here (at different aperatures) I decided to use f/8.0 because this is one good aperature no extrem. To add one more, I  only show two pictures for very focal length (17/18, 35 and 50/55mm) the center circle and the one at the left upper corner.

I decided to use a printed test image:

OK, here we go.

OK, sharpness is not everything you need for good pictures ... the aperature of 2,8 is a wonderful possiblity, just to mention that.
