DA 16-45mm VS Tamron 17-50mm/2.8

I am looking for a good all around lens. Portrait, landscape, lowlight and some Macro if I am not getting to greedy. I know the DA 16-45mm gets good reviews other then some purple hazing around the edges. Anybody have advice that has shot either or both?

I've shot neither, but my Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 EX DC Macro is a very capable perfomer :-D
