Tamron 28-75mm Portraits at f2.8?

Can someone post some portraits on the Tamron 28-75mm at f/2.8? Preferable at the 75mm end on aps-c.

Looking to get this lens but not sure if it will be significantly better than my 17-50mm for portraits

Don't know if you've seen this thread in the third party lens reviews. Some great portraits taken with the lens.

I'm not sure if it will be "better" - it will provide more subject isolation at 75mm than the 17-50mm can at 50mm, but I don't think it will be sharper. Bokeh may be different.
