Details from Tamron USA about this lens:

Setting high-performance DSLRs free with SP engineering, strengthened by F/2.8 maximum aperture advantages and Tamron VC.

The compositional options afforded by the SP 17-50mm F/2.8 Di-II VC’s wide-to-moderate-telephoto zoom characteristics are prized by experienced photographers, rendering a picture angle range approximating a 26-78mm lens on a full frame DSLR or a 35mm SLR. A fast and constant F/2.8 maximum aperture allows cluttered backgrounds to be softly obscured, additional freedom in low-light conditions and added viewfinder brightness. State-of-the art properties, including XR (Extra Refractive Index) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass in an optical formula employing 19 elements and 14 groups—assures sharpness, optimal contrast and breathtaking image fidelity. Its form factor and handling characteristics can be traced to the use of aspherical element design and internal focus. Tamron’s proprietary tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization adds to image sharpness and further expands low-light shooting freedom by combating image blur resulting from camera shake. Tri-axial VC addresses the adverse effects of camera shake in three planes making it possible to shoot handheld at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.

The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

    1. This lens would benefit me because I believe my 60mm is dying and I can not replace it right now

    2. Favorite focal length is 60mm-I love this lens

    3. I like MCP on Facebook!

    Nicole L says:

    while 50mm is my FAVORITE focal length to shoot, sometimes having something in the 17-50 range allows for wider shots with out having to move around (which when photographing kids can be HUGE – they move sooo much faster then I do!). This will enable me to get those wider shots a whole lot quicker which would give me more shots to offer my clients! :)

    And I love MCP- your facebook page is how I stay up to date on your stuff! :D

    Ashley Noble says:

    This lens would benefit me because this winter I will be shooting a lot of indoor sessions in a very small space. My 50mm 1.4 wont’ let me back up far enough. My fave focal length now is 50mm, because thats the lens I use 99% of the time. Also, I like MCP on facebook. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

    Margie says:

    I would love to own a wide-angle lens and be able to shoot an entire building without standing in the next county! My favorite focal length really varies, but mostly around 50 mm. I love MCP Actions, and already “Like” on facebook!

    Kristy Pruet says:

    I primarily shoot with a 50mm f/1/4 lens for portrait work but would love to add this lens to my collection! I really need a fast zoom when children run out of the 50mm sweet spot. I’m a follower on FB too!

  6. 6
    Liz Bartlett says:

    1) I think this lens would benefit my photography because I don’t have a fast, wide lens. I’m trying to take more wide angle shots. I do a lot of landscape and portrait photography, and this length zoom with a fixed aperture would be perfect for my outside and inside work.
    2) My favorite focal length to shoot is 35-50mm, but I’m trying to shoot wider for something different and some variety.
    3) I do like MCP Actions on Facebook.

    Lindsey says:

    This lens would be wonderful for taking my photos to the next level since I haven’t yet invested in a slight telephoto lens. I think the quality would be perfect for the types of photos I take (generally with a 50mm but I want something other than a fixed lens).

    karen ramos says:

    I believe that if I had this lens it would be a big aspect for my business. I do a lot of weddings and studio photography and have not been able to afford getting a 2.8 lens. I would be using this lens a lot.
    right now after having to sale my camera and lens to help my family out when we both got laid off I only have a 18-55 3.5 lens. We did keep one camera so I can keep trying to make money for my family.

    Melissa says:

    1. This lens, with its f2.8, would be a huge improvement over my current zoom lens, which is f4-5.6. It would allow me to get more shots using available light without increasing the ISO or being forced to use flash.
    2. My favorite focal length is currently 50mm, but I think once I buy a 35mm lens that may change. ;)
    3. I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook.

  10. 10
    Lindsey says:

    up until recently, the 50mm has been my favorite lens to shoot with but as I said above, there are so many limitations, particularly for travel photography.

  11. 11
    Suzanne says:

    1. I could use a wide lens…and this would be great!
    2. I love to shoot at 50mm.
    3. I *like* MCP Actions on FB.

    Jenny says:

    How would this lens benefit your photography? I think having a wider range of lenses to take different portraits and not using same focal length each and every shoot would be amazing. I think it could help advertise my point of view better as well.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? I love 50mm but occasionally I like shooting at 300mm to make sure my subjects don’t know they’re actually being captured on camera, they tend to act more natural that way.

    I have been a fan of MCP Actions on Facebook for quite some time now.

    John Mark Patrick says:

    1. it definitely give me better options in lower light situations.
    2. my favorite is 50mm, though I’m still learning how to get my 1.8 to focus properly.
    3. I already like MCP Actions on FB.

    I would LOVE to win this lens!!! I just bought the 28-75 and if it were legal to marry a lens (and I wasn’t already married) I would marry this lens! I love shooting wide so this lens is next on my list. Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

    Brooke says:

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography? This lens would be great in helping me with weddings. To have another lens to choose from would be awesome. That way I would have to keep switching cameras to get the look I want.
    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 24-70 is one of my favs.
    3. I like MCP on FB!

  16. 16

    1. This lens would allow me to shoot wider angles. I’ve been experimenting with this lately and love some of the creative shots I can get. But I usually have to rent a lens.
    2. If I had to pick one focal length, I’d choose the 50mm. But I love using my 28-75mm zoom because it’s so versatile.
    3. I already “like” MCP Actions on Facebook. I get lots of info from the posts and the updates remind me to check the blog. :-)

    Great give away!
    1. This lens would benefit my photography b/c my favorite lens is a Tamron that has seen too many years of hard work. It desperately needs to be replaced. I only have one other lens and it doesn’t match my Tamron.
    2. I should primarily with a 28-135 and find that around 35mm is where I shoot most. Must be my fav.
    3. I am a definite facebook fan!

  18. 18

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    ~this lens would allow me to learn more….I am still learning all the ins and outs of my camera and the lenses I have, and I love it.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    ~Im into my macro right now…not sure why…I think its the bokeh

    Julie says:

    My favorite focal length is 50mm.

    This lens would benefit me b/c I would be able to be more versatile during shoots without relying on MY speed to back up.

    I follow MCP on FB and love your site.

    Allie B says:

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I already have the 28-75 mm Tamron and could greatly benefit from having the 17-50mm lens because sometimes I find myself backing all the way up against a wall to take a photograph. So I guess that means I could use a little more focal range.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    I usually find myself liking 35-50mm. but I suppose thats because its within my current focal length abilities! Maybe that would change to 25mm with a new lens =D

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)

    Amy Woodell says:

    I think this lens would benefit my photography greatly in that I shoot on location in a lot of homes and the 50 mm lens I use now is just not great for groups- I love the clarity of this lens but it is just difficult in small spaces. 50 mm is my favorite focal length to shoot at right now. I am currently a fan of MCP actions and I love all your actions as well as your blog. This would be such a blessing to win. Have a great day!

  22. 22

    I also LOVE my 50mm, but like others I just don’t have the room to shoot indoors especially if it is a small house! I would love something that will go down to 17mm. This would give me a lot to work with. Right now 50mm is my favorite focal range. I have Love MCP and have been a fan for a while now :) Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!

  23. 23
    Kristi says:

    I also have a 50mm that I use most of the time, my fave focal length. It is frustrating that I have move around more than I like. I would love to have the ability to “move without moving”. I have been frustrated with my current lens, in that I feel like my pics aren’t sharp enough.

    I already like MCP actions on FB. Girl, I have it bookmarked under my toolbar! I love the articles, and have been researching the archives lately too. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Melissa says:

    Generally I shoot at 50 mm, but when given the opportunity to win a lens which is 17-50, it would give me more options! As for how would the lens benefit me, well I would have to say that the 2.8 would be a great addition to my two lens which I have now, and accompanied by the VC, it would help to get those fast moving kiddos without a problem! I love MCP on Facebook!!!

    Carol Anne says:

    I just started shooting weddings this year and having the wide 17mm end of this lens would certainly help with group shots, exit shots, and the overall event.

    Typically 50mm is my fave focal length.

    I “like” MCP on FB, but I really LOVE MCP on FB. :)

    Elsie Joyce says:

    This lens would help my in my studio my room is only 12 by 15 and I am shooting with 50 mm 1.8 but would love to have a tamron lens with more of a wide angle to get the shots I am missing I love shooting at 2.8 for back ground blur and this lens would also help with outdoor shots as well!.I do not have any lense that are wide angle and I have traded in my kit lenses for a 70-200 l series lens and now i HAVE NO MONEY to purhase a wide angle lense. I also have a family vacation coming up and am desperate to expand my kit and inlude a wider angle lens! Tamron has a great reputation and MCP Actions is a great site I like you on facebook and am always checking out your posts! Thank you Elsie Joyce

    Oh, I was so excited I didn’t read the rest of the blog entry!! OH NO! You do not need to count my previous entry…here’s my corrected one.
    1. I love shooting wide and often shoot in tight places so this focal length would really be beneficial.
    2. I like to shoot at about 28 to 50 on a crop
    3. I already like you on Facebook! :)
    Thank you!

    rebecca says:

    This is the lens I have been WANTING> I took a class with Ken Hubbard this summer and everyone of his shots with this lens just loved.

    It would benefit me with 2.8 range throughout the zoom.
    I love shooting wide landscapes, with a foreground.
    I am a mcp fb fan, which is how I saw the post!

  37. 37
    Jennifer says:

    1. The vibration compensation would really help when I’m taking photos of kids on the go – I don’t always have time to get into the ideal stable stance for capturing a moment, and I can see the VC would rescue moments that may otherwise have been lost.

    2. Favourite focal length depends a bit, but I certainly make the most of my prime 50mm lens. It would be great to have a lens that allowed me to shoot at f/2.8 at other focal lengths!

    3. I’m hoping I confirmed the ‘like MCP’ correctly on fb!

  38. 38
    Faith K says:

    This lens would be fantastic as we are moving into the fall/winter season where light is at a premium. The 2.8 with the 15-50mm zoom would let me get the shots that I need when I am working indoors in limited space.

    My favorite focal length is 50mm.

    I of course am a follower on FB. I love MCP!

    50 is my favoirte

    I am a long time FB fan!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Kerri says:

    1. i LOVE wide angle shooting. My current wide angle zoom lens is just too slow of a lens to really utilize. So having that fast speed would be awesome.

    2. i usually shoot 35mm for focal length right now.

    3. LOVE MCP actions already :)

  43. 43
    Jeremy C says:

    50mm is my favorite focal length. I love my canon 50mm prime lens. However, when shooting a family, large groups, or close quarters, sometimes 50mm is too much. Being able to quickly move between a wide angle 17mm and a 50mm focal lengths would allow me to transition between shooting solos and groups quickly, or have greater flexibility within small spaces. It would also allow me to capture both nice tight shots and immediately pull back for a wide dynamic shot without having to move or change lenses. Which a lot of times causes the subject to move, change facial expression, or assume that shot it done.

    And not only do I “like” mcp actions on facebook, but I have shared some of my own images edited with MCP actions on your page before. Love MCP!

    Elysha says:

    1. This lens would help me so much in getting sharper portraits of my kids and my friends’ kids – it’s the next lens on my purchase list, actually!
    2. Since I mostly shoot with my 35mm prime, that’s my current favorite focal length.
    3. I ‘like’ MCP Actions on facebook!

    50mm is my FAVORITE focal lenght. I think this lens would be great for me to shoot kids and the mountains.Just getting started in photography so I need all the help I can get. I have liked MCP on facebook and love it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    1. I would really love to play with some new lenses. Right now I only have the lens that came with my camera.
    2. My favorite focal length would be around 50mm, but I don’t really have many options with the lens I have.
    3. I’ve been a fan for a while.

    I love my 50mm prime lens I use on my Nikon D50. Yes that’s right a D50.. I know that camera is extinct, slowly saving for a upgrade :) I’ve never actually tried this lens, but from what I’ve read it produces a very sharp image which would be awesome. Maybe it would help my dinosaur,lol. I’ve of MCP on facebook and enjoy reading the posts. Thanks for the giveaway !

    Rayan says:

    1. This lens would be wonderful for walking around outside and getting snap shots of my children who are 2 and 6 months. The twin 2 year olds move fast and the zoom would allow me to snap photos of them in different locations with a great F stop – allowing for lower light conditions! Plus, I love using the wide angle portion of the lens in city shots at night. Just beautiful!
    2. I love to shoot my 50mm f1.8, but a great zoom lens adds functionality for different situations.
    3. I Like MCP Actions on FB

    1. Currently I shoot a NIKON 50mm 1.8 or my everyday lens is the tamron 18-27. This 2.8 would be a perfect compliment to my bag. I shoot a ton of portraits from seniors to families and more than 1,000 sports kids a year. I need a fast lens that can get the job done and produce beautiful portraits. This lens would allow me to shoot my portraits and groups without switching out the lens the bokeh and low light features are an added bonus. It will allow me to take my business to the next level and level the playing field between my at- home studio and that of the big dog studio in our area. It will show that with the right glass and creative eye you have what you need for great portraits.

    2. I shoot most my portrait on my 50mm. I love the look of my portraits but desire more of a focal range at times.

    3. I have been a “like” of MCP for some time now, and yes…on Facebook too.

    3. Of course I like MCP Actions!

    1. Could use this lens as it would allow me to shoot in lower natural light and I could capture more kids moving around. I have four kids myself and shoot primarily children. This would be such a great addition to my shoots.

    2. I really like 50mm.

    3. I LOVE MCP ACTIONS ON FB. I have most of the actions.

I love shooting at a focal length of around 20 for landscape and 50 for portraits. I have “liked” MCP on facebook for some time now. That’s how I keep up to date.

    Kate says:

    1.) I only have a 50mm 1.8. I would love to be able to get shots and focus closer up! I have to move around so much with a prime lens to get the shot. It would help me so much to have something different. I also would like to go into Real Estate photography for staging homes. A wide angle would be amazing for this!
    2.) I can only shoot 50mm focal length. I love it, but I would loooove to go wider!

  59. 59
    Paul Perger says:

    I shoot Senior Photos and Weddings primarily and recently rented a Canon 17-55 2.8 and LOVED it. I imagine this is very compatible.

    My Favorite Focal Length is 24mm. This is only because it is the shortest length I current have with a 2.8 lens. When I rented teh 17-55, I found myself in the 17-18 range regularly, so I imagine when that becomes possible, it will become my favorite.

    I already “Like” MCP on Facebook.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Like many others, I became interested in photography when my son was born. As I learn more and my subject matter grows (ok maybe it’s just my son that’s growing and now I have to chase him), it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get wide enough to get the shot I want with my favorite 50mm lens. I would love to have a 17-50mm lens! Love MCP! Thanks!

    1. My business just had it’s 1 year anniversary, so having new equipment would help since much of the income from my first year went back into my business.

    2. I love to shoot with my 55-200, because of the depth of field it does. Backgrounds are out of focus and I’m a happy lady!

    So excited I started following the blog and for your actions. This lens would add to my bare collection. I am a second year business and still only have two lenses in my bag. I rent most of my lenses (I am saving to purchase more). My favorite focal length to shoot is 50mm or 85mm. Yes, I like you on both my personal and business page of facebook. Excited to see who wins. Especially if it me.

    I would love, love, love to win this lens because I would be able to take wider shots. Right now my favorite focal length is 50mm but I’m sure that’ll change soon!! I already “like” MCP Actions on Facebook even thought I actually love you guys ;-). Thank you!!!

    I have a prime lens right now which I LOVE but it does limit my photography. I would love to have this lens to help capture the active LO and sports.

    50 is my favorite

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    Judy Ozmar says:

    Recently I have taken some photos for a real estate agent and found I need a wider angle lens. This lens would definitely help in those tight spaces. My favorite lens is a zoom and I use the 50 mm for most other type of images. I ‘like’ MCP on Facebook and appreciate the freebies and contests!

    lisa says:

    This lens would benefit me because I do alot of indoor shoots and need a wide angle lens. My fave focal length changes depending what im doing, for example when shooting rugby its 300mm but for portraits its got to be 50mm. I do like MCP on facebook and love getting your posts on there!

  77. 77
    Erin says:

    Oh my goodness… this is the exact lens i am wishing for! This would benefit my photography because I use a 50 mm 1.8 and a 135 mm 2.8, and have nothing to shoot with in the 17-50 mm range. My favorite focal length to shoot at is 50 mm, because I do a lot of portraits. I have gotten so much wonderful information from mcp actions, and I am most certainly a fan on facebook. Thank you so much!

    Jill says:

    I could greatly benefit from this lens. Right now I shoot with an 85mm (which I LOVE….it is my favorite lens and focal length ever) and a 50mm. Although I really love these two lenses, many times I wish I was able to capture things on a little wider scale. The 17-55 would be a great focal length, and I love that the aperature is still low. I have been a fan of MCP actions on facebook for a long time. I love MCP….your actions are amazing, and your blog is very inspiring! Thanks for holding such a great contest!

    How would this lens benefit your photography? – This lens would benefit my photography by adding a much needed range to my collection the 28-75mm (for full frame) is a great range for portrait sessions, and it would be fantastic to have!
    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? – Currently 85 but maybe this lens could change that
    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior) I do indeed like MCP actions – who doesn’t?!?

This lens would allow me to do just that– and it’s such a great lens! how could it not be awesome!? =)

    My favorite lense I shoot with is my portrait lense, a used cannon 50mm 1.8

    3. I like and follow MCP on facebook, this is my first time entering a contest and I will spread the word!

    I am already a fan of MCP and subscribe to the RSS feed. I find myself getting lost in articles MCP posts when I should be folding laundry ;) I currently use my Canon 50mm 1.8 for newborns (when I have the space!) As an on location photographer, I sometimes don’t have the room in a clients home to use this amazing lens and so I turn to my Tamron 28-75 which has been so good to me! Having the Tamron 17-50 will make my small lens collection a happy little family and would SURELY be my “go to” when in a smaller space with my snuggy buggy newborns.

    1) I shoot a lot of Portraits, Kids, & Weddings so have either lens added to my collection would greatly improve my versatility. I currently own 2 Tamron Lens and have always been a huge fan of them. Currently my 50mm 1.8 is the fastest lens i having the versatility of a fast zoom would greatly open up more options shooting for me.

    2) My New Nikon 50mm 1.8G has got to be my current favorite lens right now, i love that lens, so i would have to say that 50mm would be my favorite length to shoot.

    3) Ive been a long time follower of your Facebook, use most of your free actions, and Also added you on Flickr, Twitter, & Linked In, Along with subscribing to the Blog.

    1: Currently the widest angle lens I own is the kit lens from my Nikon D90 (an 18-105 mm). Needless to say, it’s not a top quality lens, so I’ve been slowly purchasing better ones. Something I don’t have yet is a lens in the 17-50 mm range, and I’ve been eyeing this Tamron option! I’m just a budding photographer trying to start up my own photography business (I quit may day job to jump in with both feet!). So, this lens would help me be more versatile as I grow my new business and my photography skills!

    2: I like to shoot between 24-70 mm, but am hoping to shoot more wide angle stuff soon.

    3: I most definitely “like” MCP Actions on Facebook!!

    Rox says:

    1. I am just a beginner but would love to experiment with new angle options and this lens would do just that!
    2. I hate to say it, but I am not sure what my favorite focal length is. I just got my new DSLR camera and I am still learning how to use it. My guess would be 50mm.

    Krista says:

    1.I like the veratility of a wide angle lens. I like shooting just about anything & this would help to not have to switch my lens so often. I also like that it has a f2.8.

    Brecken says:

    1. I have the kit lens, and a 50mm lens. But switching between the two means I miss the in-between stuff and once when shooting on liberty island on a windy day got dirt blown into my body. It was horrible.
    2. I love to shoot with my 50 mm, the detail and bokeh are wonderful contrast, but it’s such a limited lens. Groups are nearly impossible. Running children are harder to keep in frame. etc. It would be nice to turn the lens instead of have to change the lens on those outings where I need more than just head shots.
    3. I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook!

    Katrina Romagnoli says:

    1. I’ve been using a kit lens for a while, working on getting my skills up to par before dropping the money on a better lens. I’m feeling more confident in my skills, and am starting to get frustrated with the limitations of the kit lens. This will help!
    2. 50 mm is my favorite.

    This lens would be a great addition to my lens. I currently have a fixed 50mm and I absolutely love it. It would be great to have this option to zoom out more to be able to get wider angle shots and possibly better group shots in portraits.

    My passion is in landscape though, and I know this would make a great lens to shoot landscapes with.

    Andrea says:

    I would love to have a wider lens, right now I only have a 24 and have been wanting something wider.

I Like MCP Actions on my facebook page and I shared this contest on my facebook page.

    Vicki Tate says:

    1. This lens would be great for my wedding photography. Right now the widest lens I use is the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. This lens would make taking the group shots a little easier.

    2. I don’t really have a specific focal length that I love. I only have one prime lens, the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro. I love that lens! It stays on my camera a lot.

    I am a MCP facebook fan. That’s where I saw the post about the lens.

    Thanks!

    Pamela says:

    1. This lens would benefit my photography because I shoot with crop sensor cameras and sometimes 28mm isn’t wide enough. I have rented wider lenses on occasion, but would LOVE to have one at my disposal 24/7.
    2. My 50mm 1.4 is on my camera most of the time – if I am shooting the more stationary subjects and adults or really need that super-shallow depth of field. I just love that lens so much. But I find myself putting a zoom on when my subjects are less predictable AND I find myself often wanting something wider than my 28-75mm affords me.

    Gina Sirmans says:

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography? – a wide aperature zoom lens would be so helpful in shooting. I currently mostly use my 50mm 1.4 to get that BEAUTIFUL bokeh, but it also means I am running backwards a lot to get more in the frame. To be able to zoom in and out while not sacrificing f-stop would be great! (my other lens is an 18-55 3.5-5.6, so I lose a lot of stops there!)
    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? – as mentioned above, I generally shoot at 50mm. And before getting my 50, I tended to zoom in to 55 to achieve favorable bokeh.
    3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior) – I’ve liked MCP actions on FB!

I do not have a good lens (or any lens for that matter) that is suitable for this type of photography. I would LOVE to have this lens for low light and wide angle. I do not have a “favorite” focal length – each is unique. I adore MCP Actions – Magic Skin and The Eye Doctor are fantastic! I use them on every portrait…love, love, love!

    2. I love using my 35mm/1.8 lens currently…until I get a full frame camera…otherwise, I LOVE the 50mm:)

    Fred L says:

    First off, this lens would benefit me by not only providing vibration control for still shots, but also give me a 2.8 aperture from 17 to 50mm unlike some of those cheaper lenses that vary the size of your aperture based on your chosen focal length. so no matter if i’m shooting wide, or standard zoomed, my aperture stays put. this would be very useful for consistency when I’m shooting HD Video on my DSLR as well.

    Second, my favorite focal length is somewhere around 24mm on my APS-C frame DSLR. Maybe someday I’ll have the opportunity to purchase a full frame!

    Third, I am a fan of the MCP Actions Facebook page. It’s the way I found out about this contest, and I plan to repost the contest for my other friends to have the same opportunity and promote the MCP Actions page.

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I have been looking for a wider-angle lens to use for some of my new obsession; night photography! i took some shots the other night and caught the big dipper – and a shooting star (attached below!)! :)

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    I don’t know if I really have a specific answer for this yet, but i bought the 24-70 2.8 recently and it has a wonderful range — i’ve enjoyed a lot of shoots with little kidlets with it lately.

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)

    50mm is my very fave focal length to shoot but that’s most likely because it’s the only upgraded lens I have at this point! LOL This lens would be HUGELY beneficial for me as I shoot mostly portraits and need a fast zoom lens to add to my equipment. And not only do I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook, I LOVE them! :)

  163. 163

    I would really benefit from this lens because my short lens will only go to f5 and it really hinders the quality of what I shoot. As for my favorite focal length, it really depends on the subject as I shoot such a wide variety.

    1- I would use this lens to explore different foal lens and it would be great for indoor shots as well as outdoor specially in winter time.
    2- I mostly use the 35 mm and I love it.
    3- I’m a BIG fan on FB.

    Jennifer D. says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    This lens would help my photography because I do not have a lot of lenses to work with. I am slowly adding to my lens stash. This is a great range for focal lengths as I do not have wider lens. My favorite focal length right now is 50 mm. I am a huge fan of MCP on FB and follow the blog as well!

    1. I’ve been eyeing this lens for some time for my Nikon and it would help me greatly as I build my business. I really need a lens with some zoom power yet still able to get that nice bokeh.
    2. My favorite focal length is 50mm and I use my 50mm prime all the time on portrait shoots. However, I feel like I am sometimes limited and there are times I need to be able to get a little closer to the action. This lens would do the trick!
    3. I like MCP on FB.
    4. PICK ME! PICK ME! I ain’t too proud to beg :)

    The only lens that I have in this range is my kit lens, which is just OK. I’ve been DYING to try the new Tamron lenses with the VC option too. My favorite focal length right now is 35mm but I use 50mm a lot too. I’ve liked MCP Actions for a long time already. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    I would love to use this lens for my photos of kids, they move so fast and so often that this would be perfect. Right now my favorite focal length is 50mm, but found a great spot that needs something a little more adjustable … I already like MCP on facebook …

  171. 171
    Kristin says:

    I would love this lens because I’m constantly shooting pics of kids in natural light indoors and my current lenses just don’t cut it! My favorite focal length is 35 mm, so this would be perfect to get those shots. I like MCP actions on Facebook, it’s how I found this contest! :)

    Cecily R says:

    Having a 17 focal length would help A LOT with group photography, but having one with an f/2.8 is even BETTER.

    Right now my favorite focal length is probably 50mm, but it’s a toss up between that and 85mm.

    I do like you on FB!

  174. 174

    My favorite focal length to shoot at is probably 35mm – I would love to have something that would allow me a little more room and a wider angle! I like MCP actions on FB!! Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  175. 175
    Ingrid Durfee says:

    1. This lens would benefit my photography because I would have good glass not only for distance shots but also for closer & wide angle shots, & the zoom and f/2.8 would give flexibility.
    2. I usually prefer my 70-200mm f/2.8 because I can get close shots without being intimidating, and can keep the bg out of focus. It’s also great for sports shots, and has much better glass than my kit lenses.
    3. I already “like” MCP on FB, which is how I heard about the Tamron contest!

  176. 176
    Jill says:

    I am actually in the market for a good wide angle lens and this is one I have been looking at. It will definitely help when shooting at the beach where I spend a lot of weekends.
    My favorite focal length appears to be a very popular and common one – 50mm.
    I confirmed I like ya’ll on FB. It’s how I heard about this contest. :)

    OOOHHHH! I’d love to have this lens! I usually shoot portraits with my “nifty fifty” but I’d love to have this lens for more flexibility and versatility. I just began learning about DSLR photography a year ago and don’t really have alot of lenses in my bag, so this would be a welcome addition… I’d give it a great home ;)

    And yes, I do like MCP Actions on Facebook and appreciate your tips for amateurs and professionals alike!

    Christina W. says:

    1. This lens would be a huge benefit to my photography, as I have nothing with this kind of focal range in my bag right now.

    3. I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook.
    EXTRA: I spread the word on FB and have the MCP blog in my RSS reader.

    I’d be so excited to win! :)

    Stefanie says:

    1. This lens would benefit my photography as I’m getting into weddings and find I’m struggling to make my current lenses really work for me. I borrowed a friend’s 17-40 and almost died of happiness, so this lens is EXACTLY what I’m looking for!

    2. My favorite focal length for people is 2.8 – 3.2. For objects, I love playing at 1.8 or 1.4, just to see what kind of interesting things bokeh will do.

    3. I like MCP on Facebook! I think from both my personal page (Stefanie Decker) and my business page (BP Studio)! I just like you THAT MUCH! :)

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 18-200mm & 50mm

    And thank you for all your post full of knowledge!!!
    And one more thing, winning this will totally make my wife’s day! :)

    Allison Barlar says:

    1. It would benefit my photography because my husband dropped my wide angle lens and I do not have the money right now to replace it. So I am pretty much at a stand still right now:(

    3. I like MCP on Facebook!!!!

    1. Would love to have the f/2.8 so I can shoot in lower light conditions and still have beautiful pictures

    3. I like you on facebook (of course!)

  188. 188

    85mm is fast becoming my favorite…I am a huge fan and already like MCP actions on facebook and would really benefit from this lens because i do not have a wide angle lens and have learned in the past year that weddings seem to be my thing :)

    Donna says:

    I am just getting started in the pursuit of my love of photography. I recently took a beginner class to give me somethings to start thinking about, upgraded my computer to an iMac for editing and photo storage, just for starters. However when we went to the Grand Canyon over the weekend for me to try out some of my new ideas, I noticed my lens would not go below a 5 f-stop. Needless to say, I was bummed! So now adding to my lenses will be the next step. This new one would be great!

    Being a newbie to really paying attention to what I am doing, rather than always doing point and shoot, I still am discovering my favorite shooting preferences.

    I do like you on facebook!!

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I had to sell most of my previous lenses to invest in my Canon 5D Mark II that I purchased a couple months ago, so I am only working with one lens currently, and feel like it is doing an injustice to my camera! :P I would love to add a new lens to my set so I could have a broader range of photographs with different looks and focal lengths.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    My favorite focal length to shoot would have to be 35mm wide angle. I also love my 24-105mm for an ultra wide angle..!

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)

    thanks!
    (my website that I added is down for the time being for reconstruction and redesign, should be up soon!!)

  193. 193

    This lens would help diversify my ability to shoot in a larger variety of focal lengths as I currently do not have a lens deeper than 28mm. My favorite focal length to shoot is 50mm. I do “like” MCP on facebook.

  194. 194
    Karla Coniglio says:

    1. LOVE that it has image stabilization…it would really come in handy when trying to capture my moving babes.

    Niki Collis says:

    This would be a wonderful lens in getting wide angle shots, especially indoors as it starts to get cooler outside. With this lens, I wouldn’t have to bump up the ISO or use flash (which I really dislike).
    My favorite focal length to use is 50mm.
    I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook! (actually, LOVE and have for awhile now!)

    Melissa says:

    I would benefit from this lens as I take a lot of group pictures in small areas, in low light conditions. My favorite length is my 100-400 but I am a sucker for sports action pictures.
    Liking your facebook link is the way I stay up to date on all great thing your group provides.

    I love to shoot at 50mm
    I would also use this lens for interior real estate shots as I am starting a real estate photo business on the side (I have been a realtor for 20 years and teach classes on how to photo your listings).
    I already like MCP actions and am an RSS subscriber – I will tweet this at @hellomap and as my new blog and website are in construction plan to put MCP on the sidebar when it is completed (sometime next week!)

  199. 199

    1. I have the Tamron 90mm 2.8 and LOVE it! This lens would allow me to shoot wider and get me doing portrait style photography to the next level.
    2. My current favorite focal length is 12mm for wider shots in landscape but I am REALLY wanting to spend more time in the 35mm range!
    3. I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook. AMAZING WORK!

    AmandaPN says:

    I found the link to this on Facebook, so I definitely like you there! :) This is a range I don’t have covered in a faster lens. I like to shoot at all focal lengths, honestly… there is no one focal length I shoot with – that’s why this lens would be so great for me!

  201. 201
    sarah says:

    1. This lens would GREATLY benefit my photography because it would allow me to get rockin’ portraits AND scenery without running back and forth like a maniac (I mainly used a fixed lens).

    thanks for all these amazing tips and tricks and give-a-ways! =]

      2) Favorite length to shoot at is 50mm.

    This lens would benefit my photography greatly. I am often faced with times where a wider angle would help me get “the” shot… both in the few weddings I shoot a year and in my in home studio where it can be a tight squeeze (and where I constantly seem to chop off limbs!)

    My favorite focal length is 50 mm.

    I am a fan of MCP Actions!!

  226. 226

    This lens would help me as I currently dont have a 24 or 50 mm lens and I shot portraits just yesterday using a 70mm zoom at 50 mm all day!

There are times I pull out my kit lens (18-55) just to get a wider angle, but would love the fixed aperture of the Tamron 17-50. I, of course, already follow MCP on facebook – love!

Awesome for fast moving children that I take the most pics of and love the most as well.

    This lens would be greatly beneficial to my newly started business. I recently switched my career focus to photography because it allows me to be creative and do what I love. I enjoy shooting with my 50mm for those crisp, detailed shots. I have to buy my equipment in sparsly because of cost. You have to spend money to make money. This lens would be greatly appreciated and give me more confidence knowing I have a quality goto lens.

  243. 243

    1. This lens would benefit my photography because there are situations where I am doing a family portrait with over 10 people and it would be great to have a lens wide enough to accomodate that. Not only that, I own several Tamron lenses, and I trust their quality.
    2. My favorite focal length to shoot is the 24-70mm range. I do own the Tamron 28-75 and it’s terrific! I would love the ability to go wider at times however.
    3. I do like MCP actions on Facebook, I’ve been a fan for a few months now. Thank you I hope I win!!

    This photo was taken with one of my favorites-Tamron 28-300mm.

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I do own e a wide angle lens, and usually borrow this exact same lens for a neighbor when I got out and know I’m going to try to get some landscape along with my portrait sessions. For weddings, I use this type of lens for group shots (usually rented.)

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    With this lens (when I borrow or rent it,) I love using it at 35mm; but have gotten some great landscape shots at 17mm.

    1) I would love to be able to zoom wide open, and come in for the classic 50 profile look. 2) I love the wide angle feel in photographs. I love the way it makes the background play with the subject of the photo. 3) Of coarse I follow on Facebook… that is how I got this wonderful information to come here :-)

  246. 246

    I currently have a Sigma 28-70mm f2.8 lens that is a lens i use most, but some times it’s not wide enough. I shoot a lot of on location portraits and with larger groups this lens would be perfect!

    Hi There, What a great lens. Thank you for the opportunity.

    I have just started my professional photography venture and this would help me with my family sessions. I love to capture the fun that families have together and I need fast lenses. As of lately I have been using and enjoying 35mm. I’ve been “liking” you on FB for a few months already. :)

    My current favourite lens is my nifty fifty but sometimes I need something a bit wider for tighter spaces or outdoor for landscapes. The vc and 2.8 also sound wonderful. I already like you on FB.

  253. 253

    I would love a new lens! This lens would be a perfect addition in taking portrait photos!
    I love to shoot at 50mm. I think it is the perfect length for portraits!
    I am also a FB fan :)

    >>How would this lens benefit your photography?

    I’m just a beginner, learning the ropes. This lens would add to my 50mm fixed lens that I’ve bought and let me get some longer shots!!

    >>What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    Right now, it’s just the 50mm fixed. I love using it for photos of my kids. :)

    >>Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)

    Darren Fisher says:

    A new lens would be awesome, it has been so long since I could get one to add to my collection. 17/50 with a f/2.8 would be a great addition to the family. I love wide angel shots of landscapes and this lens would also work for my stock photography indoors. Could not ask for more.

    I do not have a favorite focal length cause I love shooting in so many different ways. Again a wide angel landscape is what I am thinking about with this one.

    And yep I do follow you on FB and on my fan page you are added to my favorites.

    Elaine C says:

    I love taking portraits…so my favorite lens is my prime 55 mm 1.4. But it does severely limit my ability to shoot wider and my mobility in tight situations. So….having said, that I would LOVE to be able to use the 17-50 lens to offer more flexibility (wide angle and low lighting situations) in my shots.
    I love MCP and am already a FACEBOOK fan! Thanks!!!

    Jacqueline says:

    I would love to add this lens to my collection, My favorite focal length is 50mm I use it 98% of the time. But having this lens would open so many possibilities a nice wide angle with 2.8 aperture YUM. I’d use it for fun wide angle shots of my children, oooh and for my son’s 1at year birthday party with a carnival theme I can dream :)

    1. With the help of this Tamron lens I would be able to expand my photography and to take it to the next level, as I am keen on shooting wide angles, especially buildings and nature. 2,8 would allow me to take photos in low light conditions as well.
    2. 50mm is my favourite focal length. Most of my shots were done by the nifty-fifty. (I have not used any other lens.)
    3. I “like” MCP actions on Facebook (I have a lot of your actions) and I have subscribed to your RSS feed as well. I follow you on Twitter (have retweeted: Tamron Lens Giveaway: Win a 17-50mm for Canon or Nikon Camera http://goo.gl/fb/AcHr2 #photog #announcements #contests

    2. I only have my kit lens still, but I’ve borrowed my photographer brothers lenses and loved his 50mm.

    My favorite focal length would be somewhere between 35-50mm.
    I already like and love you on FB <3

    1. It would help me with landscape photography. I dabble in a little of everything but really need a lens that is a bit wider.

    2. My favorite focal length is around 50-100. I am also looking at a prime lens but love the simple adjustments of a zoom.

    3. I absolutely love MCP actions and have liked the page for along time. I have purchased a good deal of the actions and wouldn’t know what to do without them. :)

    I have a 70-200mm lens and I shoot in my garage. I really need to back up. When shooting newborns, I don’t trust being that far back, so I use the kit lens! This awesome lens would help out so much!

    Favorite length is 70mm is that’s what i’m lens I’m using.

    I confirmed the ‘Like’!

    Andrew Hill says:

    1. To be honest I’d be looking more towards trying to benefit my son’s photography as he’s just started in 6th form at the college and could do with something sweet to strap to the front of my old faithful 400D that I’ve just handed down to him.

    2. I’m a big fan of 50mm at the moment but I’m rather drawn towards 28mm at the moment as I’m drifting back towards more street orientated shots.

    3. I also “like” MCP Actions on facebook.

    Keep up the good work.

  296. 296

    1.This lens would be great for me, as I do a lot of kid/baby portrait photography… mostly with my 50mm prime, but this would be wonderful for tight squeeze situations, and for when I just need to get a little more into the shot.

    2.Fave focal lenght is currently 50mm. My f1.4 50mm rarely leaves my camera body these days. :)

    3.I most certainly like y’all on Facebook!

    kristina coan says:

    Ohhh…how I would love to add this lens to my small collection that I’m building. This lens will help me stand further away from my subjects, mainly children. I just bought what is referred to as the nifty fifty and so far I am in love. It would be wonderful to have a good quality lens with a zoom. Right now, because it’s my new toy my favorite focal length is 50mm. :)
    I just love your actions. I have eye dr/dentist and my next is magic skin. Oh and I “like” you on facebook. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!!

    Regina says:

    This lens would be a great addition. I currently do not own a wide lens, can’t afford it right now. I am being asked left and right to do photos for families, and a wide angle lens is just what I need for that. I currently make my 18-55 lens work, but it would be great to have a new lens! =)

    My Favorite focal length 2.8… I don’t currently own a lens with less than a 4 focal length.

    Yes! I like, like , like your page! =)

  302. 302

    I feel that this lens would be greatly beneficial to me because right now I have the kit lens (18-55) and a zoom lens (75-300) and while I know how to use them I need something better for portraits. I am a student that is just about ready to graduate and would love to gain some new equipment since all of my money is going towards schooling. My favorite focal length is anything below 55. I love when the background softens just enough that you can’t make out just what it is surrounding the subject.

    1. This lens would benefit my photography because quite frankly, I’m in dire need of a better “all-purpose” lens. I love the lower aperture of this lens and also the fact that I could use this lens to take a wide variety of photos (something that my 50 mm doesn’t always allow).

    2. I love shooting at 50 mm, but sometimes I struggle with having enough room for tight, indoor shots.

    Right now I only have a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Adding this focal range would be incredible!! Sometimes I just can’t get wide enough due to space restrictions in some settings. My closest place to rent a lens is an hour and a half away and last weekend I had a lens reseverved for a wedding I was shooting AND THEY DIDN’T HAVE IT WHEN I SHOWED UP!!! It would be incredible to not have to rely on that place anymore until I can invest in the lenses myself (or win one)! My favorite focal length to shoot is obviously 50mm because that’s all i have! And yes, I am a HUGE fan of you on FB and have purchased from MCP in the past. Love this site, so helpful!! Thank you SO much for the opportunity to win! God bless!!

    Gina Grande says:

    Hey!! This lens would be amazing for me so then I can stop renting it from my local camera store! It is one of the lenses next on my list to get as I am just starting in the photography business and it is blowing up!! Lots of High School Senior Pictures, Child/Family Photography, and I’ve done a couple small weddings. I think I have bought about 5 action sets already which are all amazing!!! The rented 17-50mm 2.8 has been amazing for the low light situations like in a church or a wrestling meet and the 50mm 1.8 really restricts me when I’m trying to get a certain shot and almost miss it because I have to back up so far sometimes. Getting this lens would probably be one of the most amazing things for me as it would help me go to that next level with my photography. When using this lens my favorite focal lengths I use most are around 24 and 50mm. And of Course I’m a huge fan of the MCP Facebook page! :)

Generally, I shoot motorsports, so I’m using 200 mm Prime, but for portraits I’ll use my 28-70mm. Oh, and liking you on Facebook is how I found this, but the work “like” belittles how I feel about MCP. I wish there was a “LOVE” button on Facebook!!

    1. This would be a great alternative to my 18-55 kit lens for the speed alone. I’d also enjoy not having to run around as much/change lenses since I primarily use a 50 or 35mm fixed lens.

    2. Focal length is a toss up. I love my 50mm prime, but it can be limiting at times.

    I’m a full-time mom who’s gone back to school to help her family out. I have a totally different major but my minor and my passion is photography. I’m self taught as of recently, and have mostly shot prime. I’m just beginning to learn the different techniques and fall in love with the history of photograpy and it’s art more and more everyday. I would love this lens to broaden my developing love and talent for the art.

    I love your actions by the way.

  341. 341

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography? I shoot mainly papercrafted projects for my blog and close-ups of my children, so it sounds like this lens would be great for both! Plus, I haven’t tried a Tamron product before and would love to!
    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 50mm or less
    3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count. ALREADY DO, that’s how I found out about this giveaway! :)

    1. A fast lens like this with a bit of range? PLEASE!! I’ve discovered that shooting a moving toddler on a prime is not so easy – being able to zoom in/out while holding a fixed aperture would be incredible.
    2. Right now I’m making great use of my 35 mm 1.8 on my crop sensor Nikon.
    3. I “like” MCP actions on facebook (and have for a LONG time!)

    Being that I only use my prime 50mm lens, this would be a much needed lens to add to my arsenal! That being said, I love my 50mm, too! I already “like” you – it’s how I found out about the contest!

    Chad Cook says:

    1. This lens will give me more options when shooting, both for portraits and for the “art” shots that I take.

    2. I must say that I really love the depth of field at higher focal lengths. The bokeh provided by the higher focal lengths adds to the atmosphere of the shot.

    3. I have been a fan of MCP Actions on Facebook for some time now. And although I have actions for other pages, MCP actions tend to be my “go to” actions!

    jayanthababu says:

    1.I think Landscape photos are falling short of being great because of the kit lens 18-55mm .. I am a big fan of lens with f2.8 especially the Tamron one’s , I own a tamron sp90 2.8L macro lens and it is awesome

    2.For now I had like to shoot anything less than 20mm , kinda of bitten with bigger perspective ..wide open landscapes

    3.I have already liked MCPactions on FB.

    Courtney Burgess says:

    1.How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I have been wanting to get into event and birth photography for some time now and this lens would REALLY help me achieve the images I want that my 50 can’t. I need to get into tight spaces, and the Tamron 17-50 would help me with that

    2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    Right now all I have been shooting with is my 50, and I love it!

    3.Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – Already “like” MCP Actions on Facebook.

    1. Shooting at f/2.8 to get that shallow DOF will help my photographs look much better, I don’t currently own a fast lens.
    2. I currently shoot a lot around 35mm according to my lightroom over the last 6 months.
    3. I certainly do LIKE MCP actions on facebook, interesting posts frequently, thank you.

    My favorite focal length is probably 50mm.

  360. 360
    Kent says:

    1. This lens would really help me out because I am very intersted in photgraphy but I am on a small budget. The Tamron lens would be a great addition to my camera bag because it has the wide 17mm focal length range so I wouldn’t have to feel so crammed when shooting indoors as well as the handy 50mm. I am looking for another portrait lens and the results from this lens looked stunning; I’d definitely put this lens to work!

    2. My favorite focal length is the nifty 50mm. :)

    I’ve learned a lot from MCP, thanks!!

    Madeleine says:

    1) I’m new in digital DSLR world, still use my film SLR, but make my move and buy a 5D mark II Canon. I normaly don’t ask my model to stop and take the pose, so I need a lens helping me to stop the right moment, with no blur :)
    2) With my Slr I use normaly the 50mm, but like to have a wide-angle for my family shoot or couple. Like to have a precise focus in specified point (perfect with a f2.8)
    3) I all ready like FB MCP action, it where I found and see that contest.

    I cross my fingers.

  364. 364

    1. I am a Canon photographer and quickly fell into the “only Canon will do”. *Insert laugh here* As such I only have my kit lens (blech) and a my 55-250mm lens. I have been shooting with these since my camera purchase about 2 years ago now, and really thought I was getting GREAT results. But recently I was a participant of Tamron sponsored Fall Color portraiture class and I got to play around with all of the lenses they have to offer. I was utterly gobsmacked by the quality and value of their lenses. I am currently trying to figure out how to fund my purchase of the 28-75 mm 2.8 f lens. As I stated above I have shot most of my sessions with my long zoom lens and while I love the DOF I can get with it… I often wish I could have captured more of the surrounding envinroment where I took a particular portrait. This lens would be a GODSEND!

    2. My favorite length would be around 70-85mm

    3. Been a HUUUUUGE FB fan of MCP for almost a year now! Keep up the fabulous work everyone!

    Photo was captured using the 28-75mm 2.8f Tamron lens at the above stated Fall Color workshop.

    3.) Confirmed.

    I don’t really have just one, Wide angles help with scenic work, I do portraits from bout 30-200mm, and of course to have 300-400mm is good for nature and wildlife.

  387. 387

    1. I would love to have a wide zom lens added to my arsenal of photography equipment. I normally shoot with all primes, but lately I’ve been in need of one zoom lens that encompasses my favorite focal lengths plus gets me wider shots for those groups

    2. I love shooting in 35mm and 50mm

    3. I am a fan of MCP actions and follow on FB!

  388. 388
    Tara says:

    I would LOVE this lens. It has been on my wishlist as I have been buying pieces of equipment here and there as I am able to! This exact lens was next on the list.

    Favorite focal length is 50 mm.

    I DO like MCP on facebook. :)

  389. 389

    1. I love the shallow DOF and the wide angle properties. This lens is very versatile in close up and giving some wider angle compositions as well. I do a lot of wedding photography and would be a fantastic duo to have this lens on the main body and my longer length lens on the second body.

    2.Favorite focal length is 50mm – I have a 50mm fix 1.4 and I love it. It is such a fun lens.

    3. I do not like MCP actions.. I LOVE IT! :)

    It would benefit my photography just because I would LOVE to have another lens!!! I’ve looked at Tamron lenses before, but haven’t been able to afford one :) My favortie focal length to shoot is probably 55mm; it’s not too close and it give just the right amount of DOP. I ‘like’ MCP actions on FB
    Thanks so much!

  394. 394
    Wendy Mayo says:

    I don’t have a wide angle lens that is as fast as this one, so I think it would really help in low light situations. I usually use prime lenses – 50mm is my favorite. Yup, I am a MCP Actions Facebook fan!

    Cat Kelley says:

    1. I used to own the older version of this lense until it was broken when I dropped my camera :( My pictures just aren’t the same since this was usually ALWAYS on my camera. I missed a great opportunity the other day when my kids were getting ice cream from the ice cream truck because I don’t have this lense anymore!
    2. I prefer shooting 50mm.

    1. My daughter Alex and I would love to shoot together. She is 10 years old and really has a passion for it. We are looking into joining the Nature Photography Club here in Toledo. What better than spending more time with my girl! If we wont this lens we would be able to join the club right away! Right now I do not have another zoom lens. It would also be used for my pet photography!

    2. I love shooting 24-70 wide angle lens!

    3. I have liked MCP actions for quite some time now!

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

    Sid Meeder says:

    My favorite focal length is 28 – 35mm, the wider the aperture the better. I am a disabled vet on a very tight income trying to get my wedding and portrait photography business going. I rented the Nikon version of the 17-55mm 2.8 backed on a d90 w/ battery grip and an sb700 for a wedding this summer. The lens was absolutely amazing. I have acceptable equipment of my own; that being a D70 and D70s, 55- 200mm VR, 50mm 1.8, 18 – 70mm 3.5 – 4.5 lenses with a pair of sb600’s. Additionally I have (4) 800watt / sec studio strobes and battery pack setup with gels,soft-boxes and umbrellas and all the goodies.

    I used the 17 – 55 on my D70s and could barely tell the difference between the D90 and D70 as far as picture quality. That hands on comparison made all the difference as it changed the priority of my future purchases. I know the best investment I could make in my photography business is good, fast glass over a new body.

    I follow MCP on Facebook on my FB fan page as well as my personal FB page and am currently using some of the free actions you provide for which I am grateful for.

    Thank you for your time and consideration

    This lens would really benefit my photography because so far I have only a kit lens and an inexpensive nifty fifty. I feel like I am already tweaking everything I can out of them and I am ready to move up to some better glass.

    I find myself shooting at 50 much of the time and I like my inexpensive 50 mm but it doesn’t have image stabilization and it is very fussy in lower light situations.

    How would this lens benefit your photography? It would bridge the gap between my wide angle zoom and my 24-70.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? Depends on the subject but I love either super-wide (17mm) or super-tight (70mm)

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – yep, I do. Love MCP.

    1)It would be great to have a lens of this quality and would improve my options as what I’m able to use to shoot with.
    2)I love to honestly shoot at multiple distances quickly. Zooms are the best. I love getting the whole pic at a wide angle and then zooming in for that special detail.
    3) I’ve been a fan on your facebook for a while now

    1. I’m just starting out and I have a couple of great lenses for 50mm and 85mm but nothing for less. Having this lens would give me the opportunity to grow creatively.

    2. I LOVE both my 50mm and 85mm lenses!

    3. I’ve been a fan for about a year! Love your blog and read it regularly for tips and information to improve my images!

    I would benefitt from this lens by taking wonderful close up shots of my clients. I don’t just have one focal shot length, I really like a varity. I am a friend on FB and will spread the word of your contest.

    Cheryl says:

    This would be an excellent addition to my photography, I have a 50 mm prime that I love for portraits, but find that I want a little more flexibility at times. My kit lens works okay, but having the ability to really open up a lens would be so nice for those low light situations! My favorite focal length is 40 for portraits. I have already liked (loved!) MCP actions on facebook

  430. 430

    1. I have been in the market for a wider angle lens and this would greatly help with those larger group shots.

    2. My favorite focal length is 50mm.

    3. I’ve been a fan of MCP Actions for a while now, and own many of Jodi’s action sets! I LOVE THEM!

    This lens would really help business since my studio space has some tight quarters. I would be able to shoot more in those areas.
    I have been shooting with the 35mm 1.8 so I guess right now, that is my fave!
    I do like MCP actions of FB! They’re the best!!!! :D

    Erin says:

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I mostly stick with prime lenses, so it’d be awesome to have a good standard zoom lens as well!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    With the crop ratio on my canon rebel, I like my 50mm lens the best.

    I LOVE (and like) MCP Actions on facebook!

    How would this lens benefit your photograhy?

    I believe having this lens will benefit my photography in the way of me opening up my own photography business. I’m in need of different lenses for different projects here and there. It will also get my creativity flowing!!!

    I look forward to getting my feet wet (literally as well) and making some super GREAT! photos:)!!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    I’m still trying to figure this out,but I look forward to finding out what I like and what I don’t as I spend more time with this lens and my camera!!

    Do you really want to win?

    YES!!!!! I really really REALLY want to win!!

    Sara says:

    I have been wanting a new lens. I am not a photographer professionally. I started taking my childrens pictures (quintuplets plus 2) myself due to lack of extra funds to pay someone else. My husband went back to school to funds are tight for our family of nine. But, since I have been doing my own pictures over the past few years my interest in photography has increased. I have a Canon Rebel XT no extras just the standard camera. Would love to have to opportunity to expand and do more with having a better lens.

    April Alsup says:

    1. It would benefit my business because I am in desperate need of a wider angle lens. I love my 50mm, but sometimes I just don’t have the room I need.
    2. I love to shoot with my 50mm, but I also enjoy 35mm in some situations.
    3. I “like” MCP Actions on FB, but I LOVE it in real life ;o)

    Jenna Allen says:

    I would love love to win! I just got my Nikon and have been practicing taking a ton of photos and then I found out that the best way to get amazing portraits is with this lens! I would love love love to win! What an amazing giveaway!

  442. 442

    1. The only lenses I have are a 18-105mm kit lens and a 50 mm 1.8. Winning this lens would be a huge benefit to my photography because it would let me have a nice, big aperture for lovely bokeh while at the same time giving me the option of wide angle or a little zoom.

    2. I don’t really have a favorite focal length yet. I use my 50mm a lot because it’s fast, but it does require that I be pretty far from my subject, which is hard when you’re doing a newborn shoot in someone’s home. I really like the flexibility of a zoom lens so that I’m not restricted to just one focal length.

    3. I already “like” MCP Actions on FB.

    Thanks!

    I would LOVE to win this lens! I was so excited to see this contest on your Facebook post. With that said, I am so glad I already like you on there. Glad to be able to know about your wonderful contest and amazing and informative posts.
    1) I would benefit from the range of this magnificent lens since the bulk of my photography is of kids. The fixed lens is sharp but harder to work with on very active kids. Plus the 2.8 is great for indoor shots.
    2) I only have a 50mm so that is currently my favorite range.
    3) I already like you on Facebook.
    Thanks again for this wonderful contest!

    1. I love my 50mm prime but sometimes need to be able to get more of the story in the shot. This lens would be awesome for that and 2.8 would be provide for lower light versatility.
    2. My fav focal length is 50mm… Mostly because I use a 50mm 1.4 for most of my shooting.
    3. I don’t just LIKE MCP on fb, I LOVE MCP on fb!! :)

    I would love to have this lens! I only have two lenses right now, one of which is a 1.4f/50mm – so 50mm is my favorite focal length right now. I shoot landscape with a kit lens, this lens would be a nice, wider upgrade. I already “like” and follow MCP on FB. Thanks for the contest!

    I just subscribed to you RSS feed!

  452. 452

    What a great lens! I love my 50mm (my favorite focal length), but I’d like to be able to shoot wider landscapes. This lens would be great for that! And I never use flash, so the VC would be fantastic for low light situations.

    I was already a “liker” with my blog page, but now I “like” you from my personal FB, also.

    1. My widest angle lens is a 35 mm which I do love but find it just a tad short. This lens is wider and a zoom. I currently shoot with primes and would LOVE to be able to use one lens at a wedding.

    2. My 50 or 85mm.

    3. I am already a fan on facebook.

    Right now, my widest lens is a 28mm…on a crop sensor. I’m a student studying photojournalism, so I’ve been saving for months to get a wide angle lens. Because I work for a newspaper, I have to be prepared for any lighting situation, which means I need fast lenses. With this lens, I could continue to build my portfolio and the wide shots it so desperately needs.

    I love shooting with my 28mm

    Jamie says:

    This lens would be an awesome addition:) I don’t have one capable of shooting wider shoots and the diversity of different subjects. My daughter and I are just getting into photography together – she is a teenager but has a wonderful eye for taking a photo and then putting editing tools to work to make it a piece of art. 50mm is our favorite to shoot at right now but we have been trying different focal lengths. Just liked you guys on Facebook and following you on twitter – Thanks for the chance to win!

  473. 473

    This lens would be for evening Indy city shots and indoor shots where our lighting is not the best. I adore Tamron lenses! My fave shooting length is usually 50mm. I am definitely a fan of MCP on facebook. :)

  474. 474

    1) This lens would help tremendously. I’ve heard this would be a good lens for weddings.

    2) My favorite focal length to shoot is 85mm.

    3) I have been a MCP fan on Facebook for a while. :0)

    Aparna E. says:

    I don’t have the range I need right now! With a kit lens, it’s not fast enough or open enough at the widest aperture. With the telephoto, I’m too close! I need the mid-range with wide aperture and the wide angle would be great to help me with portraits, landscape and night photography!

  476. 476
    Nikki Morrow says:

    1.) This lens would be fantastic for me because I photograph a lot of children. Having a faster lens would be a dream come true!
    2.) I have a 50mm prime lens that I shoot with most of the time (and I love it!)
    3.) I was already a fan on FB but I went to confirm!

    Thanks for the chance at a fantastic giveaway!

  477. 477

    First off…I love Tamron! I have one of there lenses and it never leaves my camera. With that being said….my lens is not this wide. I really could benefit by having this wide angle lens. There are many times that I have had to grab my kit lens because I need a wider view. This would help me out so much! As for my favorite focal length….it’s probably 75 because I do a lot of portraits. And lastly, I DO like “love” MCP on fb!

  478. 478
    Kellie Munro says:

    OHHHHH ~ this lens is the bomb! I’ve been eye balling it for a while :)
    I typically shoot with prime lenses, so this would help me step out of the box.
    I love the 50mm length, but so many times I’d like my shot wider, so what better lens than this!
    And of course I already “like” MCP actions ;)

  479. 479
    Aparna E. says:

    Right now my go-to lens is the nifty fifty for Canon. The 50mm offers that wide aperture and works great for portraits. But it’s a fixed focal length, so I’d love to be able to get in closer sometimes!

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    –Well, the only thing wider than 50 that I own is a really really old kit lens. Its scratched up and everything. I’m saving money for something wider–like this one :)

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    –I use a 50mm and an 85mm and I’m in love with both. Just depends on what I need them for. I use the 50mm the most, though.

    1. To date, I’ve been a prime lens kinda gal (35mm, 50mm, etc.). Would be highly beneficial to stick a single lens on for those fast moving toddlers rather than trying to change out and lose that short window where they’re agreeable to photos.
    2. 50mm
    3. Confirmed

    Lisa Lovely says:

    I own a few lenses, but the one that I am missing from my collection is the 28-75 for Canon! It would be amazing to own that lens, it would complete my collection for weddings and that lens would help me with more of my detail shots. Right now I use my 35L for details. My favorite lens to shoot is my 70-200 IS on my Mark II, but I’ve always wanted to try the 28-75. I “Like” MCP actions on my FB page and have shared this link there! I constantly use MCP actions for my editing process as well, favorites being One Click Color and High Def Sharpening and I always use the blog it boards for my blog posts. :) Pick me, pick me!

    Hey guys! I saw this link in my Facebook feed. Since I “liked” MCP Actions last year I’ve seen many awesome works come through here!(I’ll confirm my “like” by liking this post on your feed) When I saw the lens giveaway, my jaw dropped. Literally. I shoot with a Nikon S lens-50mm F/1.8. I love it! But it’s not ideal for shooting with kids who squiggle to and fro especially when your feet are the “zoom” on the lens! I really hope hope hope with all my heart heart heart that I win this!!!

    I would love this lens —

    1. This lens would allow me to be far more wide open at wider angles. I used to have a 35 f/1.8 and I traded it for a 50 mm f/1.4 — I really miss the 35 mm because sometimes the 50 is just too close — this lens would let me have more range!

    2. I must say I love shooting at the extremes — 20-35 mm and then again 125-150 mm –

  501. 501
    Megan Hein says:

    1) this Iens would challenge me to shoot at a wider angle :) and I have never owned a Tamron, so I would be excited for the opportunity to try one out!

    Hello! I would love to have this lens, I am a venezuelan professional photographer and since we have a control exchange we can´t not buy with dollars so lenses are very, very, very expensive and difficult to find here, that is why I will love to have this lens.
    My favorite focal length to shoot should be 50mm.
    and I like -love MCP Actions on Facebook, since they give very nice info, and offer so good actions. :D

    How would this lens benefit your photography?

    This lens would add amazing versatility to my newest shooting adventures. After having my two children (youngest just started Kindergarten this year) and shooting mainly portraiture work, I recently started shooting Taekwondo testings and the action aspect has been fun and very challenging. The Vibration compensation plus the 2.8 would really benefit the tight spaces I have to work around while shooting TKD testings or competitions where there is low light, no flash and wall to wall people.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    I still love shooting my action with the 28-200 Tamron zoom that I’ve had forever, but I’m definitely in need of an upgrade.

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)

    I don’t just “LIKE” MCP I LOVE MCP! I will request a LOVE button to the facebook people. lol! A friend of mine “liked” you on her facebook and so I did the same. So glad I did! I’ve already purchased Actions and adore the free actions you have. thank you for all the help in tutorials you provide and the wonderful articles. This has definitely helped me get back in the swing of things after the kids, and I’m EXCITED to shoot!

    Thank you so much!

    1. My 50mm is the widest lens I have so, would love to have something wider … shooting my family is a challenge with it.

    2.The fact that my fave focal length is 50mm and this lens is a zoom that will give me it and wider angles is pretty rad, plus its “fast”.

    Jared H. says:

    I shoot a lot of stuff in low light so it would be great to have a faster lens, not to mention it would be perfect for my trip I’m going on next month. I like shooting in the 35-50mm range to start getting that longer look that you get when you shoot through a little more glass. I definitely like MCP on facebook.

    I feel that this lens could show more depth than the current lens that I use. There is nothing more than showing depth and relationships through a lens and showing the individuals while seeing the smiles on their faces.

    50mm

    1. Acquiring quality lens are expensive. This lens would help round out my collection and replace a similar lens of less quality.

    2. I love to shoot at 20mm. It get a perspective that captures the vastness of the Flint Hills in Kansas (one of the many places I love to photograph).

    3. I have “Liked” MCP on FB for some time now. I really appreciate all that you contribute to the digital community. Thank you!

    1. I have been shooting for a few years now and I’m still playing with my kit lenses, Nikon 18-55 & 55-200. I have wanted to invest in some prime lenses but, with 10 year old twin boys something more important always comes up. :)

    2. My favorite focal length is 50 mm.

    I would love to win this lens. I have just started my photography business and don’t have a lot of funds to put into new lenses. This lens would be perfect for my type of photography as I do not have a lens with this short of focal length at this time. Currently my favorite lens is the 50mm f/2.8. I have been a fan of MCP Actions for a long time. I have also shared this link on facebook, and also added the banner. Thank you!

    Meaghan says:

    1. This lens would replace my current kit zoom, which is jammed and can only move if I turn the camera upside down, stand on one foot, and stick out my tongue.
    2. I shoot a lot now with my 50mm since the zoom is all jammed up and I don’t trust it anymore. Therefore I have lots of close-ups and detail shots, but way too little variety in framing and composition.
    3. I’m definitely a fan of MCP on FB and have learned a lot from the blog posts!

    Sid Meeder says:

    My favorite focal range is from 28 – 35mm (on a dx sensor) the wider the aperture the better, love smooth, creamy bokeh for portraits.

    I am a disabled vet on a very tight budget, I rented a Nikon 17 – 55 f2.8 that I paired with a D90 body + battery grip and a new sb700 flash for one of my weddings this summer. After taking comparison shots with the lens on my D70s I could barely tell the difference between the 2 images using the loupe view in Lightroom.

    My current equipment is the following:

    Nikon D70, D70s
    Nikon 50mm 1.8d
    Nikon 55 – 200mm Vr
    Nikon 18 – 70mm 3.5 – 4.5
    (2) sb600 flashes
    (4) 800 watt / second studio strobes with battery pack and all the goodies.

    I rented the equipment to do some good hands on testing before I hopefully get to purchase some equipment upgrades for next wedding season. After using the lens on the d90 and d70s I know now what my next investment will be, good, fast glass. Having this lens will greatly increase the quality of my work and enable me to provide my clients with heirloom quality prints to share for generations to come.

    I follow MCP actions on my fan page on FB (DFX Photography),as well as my personal page. I have also shared this give away on both pages walls. I would also like to thank you for providing great free actions and tutorials. thank you for your time and consideration

    So far 50mm. I do not own one, but I loved the one that I got to play with recently!

    This is a great prize. I too am just starting out and don’t have the money to invest in more lenses just yet. I am definitely a wide angle girls but still like to revert back to the good old 50mm. This would be a huge time saver and would give me more flexibility in getting some creative shots.

    I have a Nikon 28 2.8 and, even though I shoot primarily portraits, it really works with my style. I wish it was a higher quality lens but I make it work.

    I already like your page, visit your blog often for so much valuable information and have purchased your mcp fusion set, which I use regularly.

    How would this lens benefit your photography? I am expanding into more walking around shooting (street photography) and my current lineup of lenses are just too slow.. I have been hunting for a 2.8 for about 6 months that I can afford. Winning one I can afford! ;-)
    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? F2.8-F4 depends but I love the out of focus feel of the lower f’s.

    Nue Thao says:

    I believe this lens the 17-50mm would benefit me, in so many ways. for starters My landscapes, then my family photography, my portraits, my daughter is always on the run, but also other kids too, my husband’s whose other life is cars, and so much more. This would be an awesome collection next to my one and only lens the 50 mm.

    My current fave focal lengths to shoot is the 50 mm, but when I got the chance to rent the 35 mm that blew my mind away too!

    I am currently liking MCP on Fb and subscribed for updates! This by far is one of the best photography blogs I follow!

    1. HOW WOULD THIS LENS BENEFIT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?

    Oddly perfect timing for this question. About a year ago I picked up Sigma’s version of Canon’s f/2.8 24-70… it’s not the Sigma that’s doing it, it’s the lens itself. First of all, I hate the focal range… almost seems pointless. Second, I can go to almost any other lens in my bag and shoot the same thing… 24-70 seems like an arbitrary focal range… and since it’s most often used as a portrait lens, f/2.8 – while fantastic – seems like a waste here. NOW, what I have been wanting (heh, since I picked up that damn 24-70) is a 17-50, oddly enough. My FAVORITE lens is my f/1.2L 50mm prime lense… despite what long-time studio junkies may have to say, you can use this lens in any situation, for any reason, for any subject and in any light…. and yes, that includes studio. Ever messed around with a FAST shutter and a shallow-as-hell aperture – the possibilities are INCREDIBLE! I like the versatility of the 17mm (I do a fair amount of real estate and legal photography and fitting into tiny rooms in their entirety is absolutely crucial… 17mm doesn’t distort like my 14-20… and getting that nice f/2.8 on a lens that has a focal range of 17-50 = HEAVEN!!!

    2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOCAL LENGTH TO SHOOT?

    I did mention before that my favorite go-to lens is a 50mm prime, but if I had my way I’m thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of 35mm-60mm – ridiculously versatile (heh, once again, unlike the 24-70… and before I get my ass handed to me, I KNOW a lot of ya’ll out there LOVE LOVE LOVE that 24-70… different strokes, I respect it, but personally – not for me! … this lens would fit perfectly in my array of awesomeness that I like to bang it out with (lol), and dropping down to that 17mm is just – once again – insanely awesome.

    i think this lens would be a benefit as i look to expand my skills in portrait photography.

    i like MCP actions on facebook, especially since i heard about this giveaway there! :)

    1. This lens would be a great addition! I only have a few lenses and while my 50mm is my current go-to lens, I could sometimes use something a little shorter.
    2. 50mm currently, but I have been wanting to try out a lens with this particular range.

    How would this lens benefit your photography? – I do engagements and weddings, and have finally started to get lenses outside of my original kit. I have a prime, a telephoto, and now a nice wide angle would be WONDERFUL!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? – So far, between 35-50 seem to be best for me.

    Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior) – Definitely like MCP on Facebook!

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I do not own any lens wider than 28mm and I can’t afford to buy one right now. This lens would make a great lens for me to use with most everyday shooting.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    Currently–50mm because I have the 1.8 prime. But I really want a wider lens for some more scenic shots.

    I like your page and read everybody’s comments and before and afters all the time!!

    Wow this lens would really help in photo shots of things moving in longer distances. I like to shoot architecture and landscapes but its even more awesome just to shoot random photos of everyday people.

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I’m in love with shooting wide open, so having this lens be a fixed f/2.8 is what has me drooling. I would benefit from the ability of zoom and feel this lens would work in many different shooting situations. I want it!

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    I’m a prime girl and shoot 99% of the time with my 35mm.

    3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)
    YES! I “Like” MCP Actions on FB!

  587. 587

    This lens would broaden my horizon on photography with capabilities of the 2.8. I’ve always wanted to upgrade.

    Not sure there is a favorite specific focal point, but I find my most used everyday, all around lens would be my 28-135 Canon lens. Which I usually shoot around 50mm with.

    Been a fan and liked their page for quite some time. Recently/newly published personal and prof pages where I’ve share MCP’s f/b page. http://www.facebook.com/mcpfans#!/pages/Susan-Harless-Photography/254896291197574?sk=wall and

    My absolute favourite focal length is 35mm. If I won this lens, it would benefit my business A LOT! I do a lot of shooting in my home studio, which is a pretty tight space for a fixed prime lens, especially when I get families of 5 or more. There is no way for me to shoot larger families simply because I can’t fit them all in the picture with my current set of lenses. Thank you for the giveaway! I have been a fan of yours on FB for a while now ;)

    1. I would LOVE to have this lens! I only have a kit lens and the 50mm 1.8 to shoot senior and children’s portraits with and have wanted a fast,wide angle lens for a long time. The Tamron SP 17-50mm F/2.8 would enable me to have far more flexibility and get clearer shots with incredible bokeh.

    2. Right now my favorite focal length is 50mm.

    3. Yes I am a long time fan and customer of MCP!

  594. 594

    1. I really need this lens because I do not have anything under than a 50 in my bag.

    Financially I haven’t been able to afford another lens besides the standard that came with my nikon d90, and a 50mm for $150. It would be so nice to be able to have a super nice zoom lens to work with!

    Right now, I have been trying to only shoot with my 50mm lens to challenge myself. And dabbling with film with the same lens.

    I would benefit from this lens because it has a great f/2.8 aperture that I would love to add to my collection. I’m a beginner to photography.

    2. Favorite focal length i would say is 50 mm, but i still shoot a lot in 35mm.

    Oh I would love to have this lens. We live in the country with a lot of wild live so to be able to capture those images would be amazing.

    I’ve followed you on FB for quite some time now.

  609. 609
    Susie says:

    The f-stop of 2.8 would be a tremendous improvement over the wide angle I’m currently using….especially for those senior boy car shots. I like blurred backgrounds. :)

    My favorite focal length is 50mm. I guess I like to get right into my subjects faces.

    This lens would benefit my photography because it encompasses my favourite focal range and has that fantastic image stabilization, which will come in so handy as I scramble around chasing after my often quick-footed subjects.
    My favourite focal length I guess is 50mm but lately I’ve been getting some gorgeous results out of a 60mm too. Small difference one would think, but the results are quite visually distinct I find.
    Finally, I do indeed “Like” MCP actions on facebook, and I contribute the odd photo that I have doctored with your brilliant actions regularly!

    Casey Mayer says:

    Funnily enough, I have this very lens in my wish list as my first “real” lens for my budding hobby (soon to be business)! I rented one from my local Photography shop for a wedding I just shot last weekend and I am in LOVE. This was the only lens I needed for the range of light and shots I got. This lens is perfect for all the lower light, real life photography I really enjoy but have not been able to really capture fully with the lenses I have. I might never use another lens, in fact..
    I typically like to shoot outside when at all possible, so my favorite focal length has been somewhere between 120-200 for portraits.

    I would LOVE be the proud owner of this fabulous lens! I am just starting out with my professional photography journey and currently have been unable to afford a new lens so I work with the kit one that came with my Cannon. While I have learned sooooo much just rocking the limited equipment I currently own ~I really feel a better lens will serve me and my business in a very positive way. :] Fingers crossed. haha.

    Fav to shoot? 80-85mm

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography – I have little $ to spend to upgrade my arsenal of equipment, and I tend to use focal lengths between 18-55mm in general, but I love shooting wide open. This lens would let me have more flexibility than my 50mm prime 1.4/f but with the same ability for a large aperture.

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    As wide as I can get!

    3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior).

    Mick Brown says:

    1)Because of the VR and fast aperture the lens would make it easier to get handheld shots such as “walking about” city scenes and impromptu people shots. The tamron site’s description makes it sound like it is a nicely sharp lens with good bokeh.

    2)I currently seem to be favoring my Sigma 50mm macro lens and my Tokina 100mm Macro. Previously to my macro phase it was a 50-200mm tamron generally zoomed to around 150mm.

    1. I shoot portraits and this would really help with those close quarters I sometimes encounter…especially with larger groups in my SMALL basement studio. I am still using an older lens from my film camera if I need a wider view and it just isn’t great…since I don’t have the funds to upgrade some things.

    2. I prefer to have some zoom ability…I’ve been looking for something that does about 18-70 or so…but right now my favorite is my 50mm because it’s nice and sharp.

    Oh-This would help so very much. My widest lens right now is a 35mm, and on a cropped sensor, really not very wide. I keep getting people wanted pano shots, and this lens would be perfect!

    I’d say my favorite focal length is probably in the 35-85 range, although wide angles sure seem fun!

    This is an awesome giveaway! Thanks!

    I have been photographing seriously for about 4 years now and the one thing I have not been able to do is purchase good, fixed aperture lenses. I just got my first prime lens – Nikon 35mm f/1.8 – and enjoy the low light capabilities, but I really miss being able to zoom. I would love to be able to combine these two with a fast, good quality zoom.

    I typically shoot between 35-50mm, just because if I get above 50mm then my aperture gets too small and I lose the ability to shoot sharp, hand-held photos with even moderately low light.

    I have liked MCP on FB for quite some time and check out your posts and website regularly! Keep up the great work!!

    Debbie Westbrook says:

    1. This would help me to get better images, I only currently have a 4.5 with my 28-200. The VC will help stablize those longer exposures, & with a 2.8 the DOF will be so narrow, I wont have to photoshop those distractions in the background

    2. My favorite focal length is 50-85, I have been experimenting with the 28 for a different kind of look thou.

    3. I have liked MCP Actions for a long time.
    Thanks for the give-a-way

    1. This lens would be a great addition as I don’t have many lenses yet (just getting started). I love that it’s f2.8 for those lower light situations!

    2. My favorite lens is my 50mm f1.8.

    3. I already like you on FB – that’s how I found this giveaway!

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography? I shoot a variety of sessions and recently have been wanted a wider lens.

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 35mm

    3. I already “like” MCP action on FB – LOVE it actually!

  676. 676

    This lens would give me a wide angle focal length that I don’t own yet. I have another Tamron lens that I love! Tamron makes some great quality lenses! :) My favorite focal length is 50mm. And duh, I <3 MCP on Facebook!

    I am just starting my business and working with just one lens! I love my lens and what it does now (50mm) but would love to diversify my photos and portraiture.

    2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    50mm! My favourite subject is my son of course, and find this focal length grabs so much detail.

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography?
    It would add a new dimension to my photos. I still consider myself an amateur and I’m working on building my lens collection, this would certainly help. It would compliment my Tamron 28-75 perfectly!
    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    200mm if I had the 70-200. I’m working on that.

    1. This lens would benefit my photography greatly! I have a 50mm prime and a 55-200 but I don’t have a wider angle lens and I love the wider aperture! This would be great for my portrait photography when I need a wider angle due to being close to my subject.
    2. I like zoom capability, but I generally like shooting at 50mm.
    3. I do like you on facebook! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  691. 691

    OMGoodness!! I have a 7D (crop sensor) and until I can get my dream camera (the 5D), a wide angle lens would CHANGE MY LIFE!!! I love shooting with my 50 1.4 but sometimes find it difficult in tight spaces, so I have to put my kit lens on. I am a HUGE fan of MCP already. Thank you guys for this giveaway!!

    2. Currently my favorite focal length is 50mm
    3. I “like” MCP actions and have for a while.

    Vanessa Hagen says:

    1)If I were to have this lens for my photography I would have to say that it seems like it would be versatile enough for me to want to use for all things such as portraits and wide angle shots all with one lens so therefore benefiting me by producing great images but saving me from having to reach into my camera bag to switch out a lens! :)

    2)I love the 50 1.8 and 1.4 lens its not to much and not to little its right in between and I love that about a lens plus great bokeh.

    3) MCP is already on my list of “likes” :)

    (1) I’ve been eyeing this lens for ages – I could really use an upgrade in the wide angle department, and it is a gorgeous lens!!

    (2) I don’t really have a favorite yet – I’m loving all my lenses for different reasons, but I really enjoy the results I get with my 85mm and 50mm 1.8s.

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I love prime lenses, but in some cases I would love to have a 2.8-Zoom. Next year my cousin will be married, and I will shoot the whole wedding. This lens would do a great job :)

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    For Portraits, I normally use my 85mm prime lens. But in all other cases I use my 35mm :)

    1. The only lens I own is a 50mm and it has been all I can afford up to this point. When I look around sometimes I see things in pictures and my 50 mm doesn’t always capture what I see, so I would love a new lens to add some variety to my photography.

    2. Since I only have one lens, I would say my 50mm. I love my 50mm, I think it is an essential lens.

    3. I have liked MCP actions of Facebook for quite a bit now : )

    I like MCP on Facebook already.

    Jocelyn Downie says:

    A 2.8 lens!!! and 17-50 !! Sometimes I am in very tight quarters so this lens would be awesome. I have an 85 1.8 and I love it but I am limited indoors, so the 17-50mm would certainly allow me a whole new option. My favorite length to shoot at would be 200…and I am still dreaming of the 70-200 2.8…but to have a 17-50 2.8 would be so awesome to use indoors. I have to take a minute to say how much I love your site…I am checking it out everyday…and your actions are awesome…keep up the good work…J

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography?

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    My favorite current focal length is 50mm I would say. Due to the fact that I primarily shoot portraits.
    3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook. I “like” you, I like you a lot! :)

    1) This camera would benefit my photography by:
    The VC sounds like it would help with my shaky hands! I get some blurry images because of not holding the camera very steady sometimes! I also do not have a wide angle now so this would be great for some family photos I think.
    2) My favorite focal length is the 50 mm!
    3) I like MCP Actions on FB

    Julie says:

    I have always faved the wide angle lens, it works well in many different situations. I could use it for landscape which I want to do more of and even some small product shots. I like to shoot florals too, and it would work really well if I have rows of flowers to shoot. So one of my favorite lenses is a wide and it would benefit my photography with a whole new focal length since I don’t have a wide angle in my equipment bag. I have already liked MCP on Facebook. Thanks a lot!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    Right now its the 50mm because that is the only lens I have that I use on a daily basis. I have a 70-300mm but I use that for both my boys football games.

    1 – I would love to have a fast zoom lens! It would help with the small amount of light in my house, and a zoom would be handy because my son is always on the move and with my prime, it makes it difficult to get a decent composition.

    2 – I shoot at 50mm most of the time, just because that is the length of my prime!

    3 – I liked the MCP facebook page a while ago, which is how I found out about this giveaway:)

    This lens would benefit me as a photographer becuase it will be able to replace the standard zoom i am using now! I have been wanting to get more into Tamron. The f/2.8 and zoom of 17-50 is exactly what i have been looking for! It will really make my photos pop. I really want a lens like this and it will help my business take off enormously!

    My real estate and portrait photography work could both benefit from the use of this great Tamron zoom 28-75 mm f/2.8 lens! It’s wide which is great for R/E, and zooms out to 75mm (plus the dreamy f/2.8) which is perfect for shooting portraits.

    I don’t have an absolute favorite focal length — that’s why I love zoom lenses!

    Confirmed on FB – been “liking” you for a long time!

    Thanks

  775. 775

    I have yet to buy a second lens and I’ve had my first DSLR (a Canon T1i) for over a year now. I mostly photograph active children, so I need a fast lens.

    I don’t have a favorite focal length yet because I’ve been limited to 18-55mm with my kit lens. I tend to open the aperture wide and zoom all the way to 55mm a lot though, to blur the background.

    I have liked you on Facebook for ages!

    This would add to the awesome 2 lenses that I have in my gear now. As a business owner I am always looking for ways to better my business and a lighter weight lens would be great for on location photo shoots that require a lot of climbing, walking and exploring. My favorite lens to shoot portraits is my 24-70mm when shooting large groups and my real estate I opt for my 17-40mm. Yes I am a die hard Canon user :)

    I would use this lens to help me out when I’m doing larger groups, but also have to do smaller groups at the same time. This lens would give me the versatility to zoom out for the large group, but then zoom in for the smaller groups or individuals.

    My favorite focal length right now is my 85mm lens. I love the creamy background it gives me!

    I already “like” MCP actions on facebook.

    1st entry:

    1. I love that this lens has a constant aperture of 2.8 and vibration compensation. This lens would be great indoors (or out) where there is not as much ambient light and no access to a tripod. I would really like to have this zoom lens to photograph my family indoors since it has kind of a wider focal length.

    2. My favorite focal length would probably be 28 for indoors and 100 for outdoors. Although I’m still an amateur, I tend to do lots of portrait work.

    3. I’m already a “liker” on Facebook

    How would this lens benefit your photography? I just recently got my DSLR and I am enjoying learning. I only have a 35mm lens right now and I would love to add another lens!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? I have nothing other than a 35mm, so I guess that would have to be it ;-)

    I have ‘liked’ MCP Actions on Facebook.

    I would use this lens for portrait work that I didn’t think I was interested in but seem to gravitate towards since I started shooting!

    I love shooting around 200 currently.

    And I too already “like” MCP on Facebook!

    1. I am eager to shoot photos with low aperatures to soften backgrounds and the standard lens that came with my Canon just doesn’t cut it. It’s a good lens, I just want more flexibility and options for taking different types of photos.

    2. I don’t have a favorite yet, I just got my SLR two months ago and I’m still learning. Although the few shots I’ve managed to get with slightly blurred backgrounds are my favorite so I’m definitely leaning in that direction.

    3. Liked you on fb when I first found you and been following since.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Adding any lens to my camera bag would benefit my photography because it will help me grow and learn. I usually shoot 50 so this would be so fun. I am a fan on Facebook.

    This lens would benefit my photography because I love taking pictures of my busy kids, so it would help me get more clear shots of them. I also would love this lens to take pictures of all the babies being born in my family.

    My favorite focal length to shoot right now is the 50mm F/1.4

    I have also been a fan on facebook for awhile. Thanks!

    1.How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I currently use a 50mm 1.4 lens and absolutely love it but I am the zoom lens so sometimes I am exhausted moving back and forth and sometimes can miss the perfect shot because I was either too far away or way too close. This lens would allow me grab those shots I miss.
    2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    50mm because that is the only one I have used so far. I love up close shots.

    I love Tamaron lenses and having a wide angle would really help me.

    My favorite length is the 50mm.

    This lens would be of great benefit–it would allow me to combine a small amount of flexibility inherent in a zoom lens with the ability to capture shots in low-light situations without a flash. I love the shallow depth of field that a 2.8 lens would give. And at a focus range under a foot, I’d be able to get nice and close. The slight distortion from the semi-wide angle low-end of this lens is beautiful as well.

    Favorite focal length completely depends on the subject, of course, but I typically have my prime 35mm on my camera these days.

    And I’ve liked you on Facebook for awhile, now.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’ve been looking for a lens to do some closer shots or a better portrait lens than the one I’m currently using – the 18-55mm kit lens on my Nikon.

    I don’t think I have a favorite…I’m still learning and so try to do a lot of different things right now.

    I’ve liked MCP on Facebook for awhile now… Not sure how to confirm I like it? Uh, trust me…?

    2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot? I love to shoot Flowers at Macro, I usually use my 70-300 Lens for that. I use my 18-270 Tamron Lens to shoot all my photo shoots, it’s a wonderful lens!

    I liked MCP Actions a few months ago and I’m in love with them! I’ve been using the free ones on all my photos and I’m going to buy the Fusion package very soon!!

    This lens has a much larger aperture than my current 17-85mm lens, so I could use my flash even less and get even better photos. I have a newborn and inside, close up shots are still the norm.
    My favorite focal length is 30mm. It allows a bit more space than my 50mm prime which is helpful with kid shots!
    I am most definitely a fan on Facebook.

    A faster lens would really help me out in those low light situations!

    This lens would benefit me primarily because each lens is like a whole new medium, I am intrigued by what every depth can bring to my photographs. In shooting everything from newborn to landscape I am constantly learning and this would be an excellent tool for this. Additionally, I own 2 lenses that are both Canon and as my client base is growing I am in the market for another. Presently I am hesitant about buying other brands, it would be a great benefit to see what Tamron can do for me ~ I would love to see how the quality compares and possibly add Tamron to my next wishlist.

    I believe there is a favorite depth to every type of photo, it’s difficult for me to pinpoint just one as it can change with each session and vision.

    I’ve been a facebook fan for a while now, and look forward to reading on every time I see a post, I’m grateful to have you on my list of likes! :)
