WIN AN SLR LENS: Brand New Tamron Lens – 18-270mm or 28-300mm


I am very excited to have my 1st BIG lens give away on the blog.  Tamron USA, Inc. is sponsoring the MCP contest for a brand new lens.  The WINNER chooses from the 18-270mm (for a crop sensor Nikon or Canon) or the 28-300mm (for a full frame Nikon or Canon).

This would be an amazing lens to have for travel when changing prime lenses is inconvenient.  I can just picture this lens on a trip to Disney World.

To enter, you will need to do the following:

– Post to your blog, twitter and/or facebook about this contest (let people know how to enter and provide a link)

– Come back here and leave a comment writing where you posted (with link so that it can be verified if your post is picked from the random drawing)

– In your comment, please write why you want to win this lens, where you would want to most the lens, and for fun tell us how many lenses you currently own.

To qualify, you must:

– Have a US mailing address that the lens can ship to – this can be yours or a friend or relative but make sure you have one prior to entering (Tamron USA is only authorized to sell and distribute in the US)

– Have a Camera that works with Tamron Lenses.  If you do not have a Nikon or Canon SLR, a similar range lens for Pentax or Sony will be substituted.

– Do all the above items explained in the “enter section.”

– Please do not add comments more than once.  I approve all comments to limit spam (unless have commented and been approved on another post in recent days).  I will approve posts at least once every 12 hours – if not sooner.  So be patient and check back.  If you see your comment is on many times, email me and let me know what name was used and what post numbers, so I can delete the duplicates in fairness to all.

Contest ends Sunday evening – winner to be drawn at random – and announced via twitter and facebook.  If you are not a member of my FAN PAGE join here.

Details on the prize lenses:

TAMRON AF18-270mm VC—The World’s First and Only 15X zoom lens

    What an awesome contest! I posted on my facebook page (Thanks Aunt Carol!)

    Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/#!/matt.groesser

    My wife and I are amateur photogs and love to find new and innovative ways to “capture the moment.” We have a T2i and a 300D with 2 lenses (18-55mm kit lens and a 70-300mm IS USM). The 18-270 would be perfect for some of the events that we shoot.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’d love to win the Tamron 28-300mm. I have a Canon. I’m just learning the tricks of the trade, but loving photography, if for no other reason than photographing my own children. What a great opportunity…thanks!

    I have been looking at this lens to purchase. I too have a small photography business and have been looking for a more versatile lens to use in shoots.

    I posted the link on my facebook wall https://www.facebook.com/svetlana.sdk .
    I am staying on the path between becoming a developer or photographer. I have great passion and education for both. Currently, I giving a shot to the Photography; however, I cannot afford a needed equipment. I would use any of these amazing lens to take photoshots with my “old friend” Canon 30D.
    I wish everyone “Good Luck” and really appreciate the opportunity to win the lens. Btw, check out my website http://www.lanayoonphotography.com (mobile version was not developed yet – so it is not fantastic on the phone and tablets). 🙂
