Will Canon 18-135 lens be an improvement
 
I have a Tamron 18-200 for a general carry-around lens when traveling. I bought it when to use with a digital Rebel. I now have a 60D and would like improved image quality. I'm looking for opinions on how much improvement I could expect by switching to a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens. I know I lose some range but I don't use the longer settings all that often. I have a Canon 70-300 USM that I use for wildlife and am happy with the results.

The Canon 18-135 is much sharper than the Tamron 18-200, but it's got more chromatic aberration and vignetting.

See Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM (Tested) and Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical IF AF (Tested).
