I used to have both of those and for people shots the 50-70 range makes it no brainer. Tamron is a great lens with fabtastic IQ but the 50-135 just edges it IMO and because of the 50-70 range (+IF which makes it at close distances even shorter) you could practically do the whole shoot with one lens! This DA* is one of only 2 zooms I'm considering to rebuy (the other being Sigma 10-20/4-5.6). I'd say all considered, it's the best zoom I've tried. Even with it's rather big MFD of 0.9m.

Put your telezoom on the camera and try the 135-200 differnece for yourself. Not huge at all.
it depends

Personally I was not very impressed with 50-135mm, may be that was a particular copy but then came across this discussion too sometime back
