Pentax D FA 24-70 versus Tamron 28-75 FF Comparison Wanted

I was wondering if there's anyone who can provide a comparison of these two lenses on FF. I realize the Pentax will give a significantly wider view and is more modern. I'm interested in image quality for landscapes, i.e. primarily sharpness across the image and color rendition. I have the Tamron, but I'm wondering if the Pentax would be significantly better on the K-1. Thanks

Here is a DXO-mark comparison in the Nikon D800E (comparable to the K-1) since they are both tamrons.

I really like my 28-75, but it's small and can't be in the same league IQ wise as a traditional style Canikon 24-70.
