Screen shot 2012 09 03 at 11.05.45 AM Contest: Win a Tamron 24 70 2.8 VC Lens for Canon, Nikon, or Sony SLR Cameras


Tamron’s New 24-70 Lens can be yours! {$1,299 estimated street price}

As a photographer, there is nothing more flattering than having a one of your photos appear in front of a wide audience.  Thanks to Tamron, a photo I took during my adventure in Australia in June now appears inside millions of magazines inside the latest issue (September 2012) of Popular Photography.

In conjunction with this news, we are giving away a brand new Tamron 24-70mm lens. Details on how to enter are below the ad.

Since Tamron sent me the lens in April, I have shot a few thousand images with it in Australia, Alaska, Seattle and home in Michigan. I can honestly say I love the image quality. And the vibration compensation works amazing – trust me I have shot waterfalls handheld at 1/13 of a second and achieved crisp landscapes with flowing water. I’ve used the lens on floatplanes, boats, and helicopters, all of which have motion working against crisp images – and achieved sharp photos.

So are you ready to try to win one?

    A 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is the PERFECT concert lens, and that’s my area of expertise! Especially hearing about the great VR – I often have to shoot with longer shutter speeds than I’d like, so this would help my art a great deal!

    I’ve been saving for that lens. I would love to have it!!!

  58. 58

    The Canon 24-70 f/2.8L was one of my dream lenses but with Tamron’s version, I’m more excited due to the price difference. I own a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC and how wonderful it would be if it’ll be paired with a big brother like the 24-70!

    Omar A. says:

    As a student majoring in both film/tv and photography, this lens would be a dream come true. Not only could I use it for my photos but it will also work perfectly for video, and what more could I ask for! I have been saving up for 4 years now by working freelance and with my job, to buy a 5D, and I did it! The problem is that now I am broke… leaving me with the only lens I could afford. The Canon 50mm f/1.8 II (I love landscape photography, and its really hard to capture with a 50mm). To get this new lens would honestly be one of the greatest things that could happen to me.

    I would love to win the Tamron 24-70 2.8 because I have always been a little nervous about using anything but Nikon Glass! I have heard great things about the Tamron lens, but still have been a little hesitant of buying one. This will give me an opportunity to see I love it as much as I do my Nikon Lenses.

    Deb Turner says:

    OK…so I’m a bit unusual. Beginning photographer dreaming of my first DSLR…expecting to buy a Canon (would love recommendations) but don’t really want kit lenses. Winning this lense would push me over the top to owner of a DSLR vs. dreamer!

  106. 106

    I would love to win this because it is such an amazingly versatile focal length (and 2.8 = yummy!). I’m still in my first year of business and would love to have this on hand for everything from toddlers running around to family sessions, to personal pictures. :-) Thank you so much for the chance!!

  110. 110

    Love to win this lens to upgrade from the stock lens that came with my camera.

    Shawna Sweeney says:

    I have been using my Tamron 28-75 for the last 6 years…I have other lenses but this one has been my favorite/most used lens for that length of time… I’m wanting to retire it to family use (before i wear it out completely lol)I would love to get the new copy and I’m sure I would love it like my current one!

    A 24-70 lens would be a great addition to and support for my growing photography business. As one of the most popular lenses for portrait photographers, I can’t believe it’s not in my collection. I’d love to win that lens to fix that dilemma :) I’m a small biz so far, so picking lenses has been tricky. I know this one would really help my versatility with clients. Thanks MCP.

    But need a new lens with MCP actions
    So I can edit, explore and wonder

    I would love to upgrade from my Tamron 28-75 to this lens. I am a budding photographer, but with 5 kids buying the top of the line equipment is a long, slow process because something always comes up and eats up my savings.

    Would love to win this Tamron 24-70 lens as it would give me a chance to take my photography to the next level. My stock / package lenses are okay, and I can take nice photos with them through manipulating settings. But there are a few hindrances with stock lenses that you don’t have as much an issue with on the 2.8’s. Would love to acquire a set of 2.8’s but with two kids and the loss of my job, things are a bit tough right now.

    I would LOVE to win this lens because I am just building my arsenal of lenses and do not yet have any wide angle, or medium telephoto lenses. And honestly, my ability to afford a lens of this caliber is highly unlikely since I’m just starting out in the professional world.

  266. 266

    This would be fantastic if I won! I volunteer and take pictures at the local BMX track and recently had to buy a new camera because my old fuji film died on me. my husband will be coming home from deployment next month and We also have a new baby coming in October so how awesome would it be to win this!

  267. 267

    Oh my, to win this lens… I am sure you don’t want the novella I could write telling you why I want/need this lens.
    Are you kidding me? The 24-70? Have you seen what this lens can do? (ok, you have..but still). This lens would be my go-to lens in most situations. Crisp, clean pictures, versatility up the ying yang. This lens would make an amazing addition to any photographers bag…I just really want it to be my bag! (though it wouldn’t really see much of my bag since it would be ON my camera).

I am happy to have finally found the lens to suit my photography needs!

  419. 419

    I would love to win this for sooooooooooooooooooo many reasons! I just went to Israel and the lens I took was not good and the pics were not as sharp and good as I wish. I need a new one (that hasn’t been bounced off the concrete). I hope I win.

  420. 420

    Most of my lenses are for crop sensor cameras so I really need a wide angle lens for my 5Dm2.

    Talley Arce says:

    Me! Me! Me! I want it! Pick Me! I really could use this zoom lens. I just got my 50mm and although it takes wonderful portraits, I have a hard time getting used to adjusting my body to change the view of the subject. I actually just had my first photo shoot with it yesterday while backing up during a shot, caught my shoe and took a nice fall backwards, my poor young clients were traumatized. So yes, I could use something like this for weddings and to prevent any further traumatization of my clients. BTW, how do we enter?

    I am an amateur photographer and I’m in love with shooting weddings however I refuse to do it for money until I have the proper equipment as I only have the standard 18-55mm and 55-200 lens for my Nikon D3100. I am saving for this lens but I would be over the moon if I won it! =)Thank you for the opportunity to have a chance at winning.

    I am trying to slowly expand my lens arsenal however with limited income I only have a kit lens and a 50mm would absolutely love a new lens to branch out!

  442. 442

    This contest seriously came at the perfect time! I was literally JUST telling my hubby (after reading Professional Photographer and Jasmine Star’s blog) that this is the next lens I was saving up for. It would help my wedding and portrait photography tremendously, and every photographer I’ve talked to has said this is their go-to lens and the lens they couldn’t live without. I’ve already started saving, but winning one would be amazing!

    Because I need another lens I only have one!

  445. 445

    I am very excited for this contest. I never win anything, so it would be great to win this. My Nikkor 18-200 is in the shop because it won’t focus properly, and we all know how long Nikon takes to repair & return items, so it would be great to have another lens (even though it’s not an 18-200). Thanks.

  446. 446
    Ellyn Reid says:

    I want to win the Tamron 24-70mm because it has been on my wishlist for the past two years. Due to financial difficulties and lots of family emergencies in the past two years I’ve had to dip into my fund repeatedly and it’s frustrating because I’ve almost had enough saved up at one point ($900). I’m finally at a point in my photography where I am seeing that I *need* to get this lens to achieve the shots that I’m seeing in my head. I hope I win :)

I like to shoot Martial Arts pics and would love to be able to share my talent to the world through this lens!

    I have been drooling over this lens- pick me!

  574. 574

    I currently am using a Canon 18-55 3.4-5.6 standard issue (very good) and a Sigma DG 70-300 (not happy with 250-300mm resolution).
    I am looking for an other lens to be a base lens. The Tamron 24-70mm looks good and I would like to give it a try. I need a good lens to get the best resolution possible. I guess that I should look at the other Tamron lenses and maybe get an additional body so I do not have change lenses all the time. ha ha

    I would LOVE this lens! I have been saving my pennies for it, but the pennies aren’t stacked very high so far. 90% of my work is charity photography for http://www.nilmdts.com, and I do most of the shoots in poorly lit hospital rooms, so this lens would be absolutely fantastic for those sessions.

    Jose Rondon says:

    porque me gusta este rango focal, y siempre me ha extrañado que al ser tan buscado por su versatilidad en disitintos campos de la fotografía, sobre todo en bodas, documentalismo etc… tiene un rango focal final algo largo y sin estabilización.. y se que este es el ganador porque ademas de tener buenos cristales tiene estabilzador óptico y esto le da una ventaja grande sobre el resto de los de su tipo

  783. 783
    Kim Bultsma says:

    I’ve had several chances to play with Tamron’s 24-70 jewel of a lens. It’s crystal clear edge to edge, and the f/2.8 is ideal in many low light shooting situations. And with the VC, it makes a great “on my camera all the time” kind of lens! There aren’t many similar lenses out there in that price range with image stabilization. :)

    I would love to win this lens b/c I have been debating the 24-70 canon vs tamron lens for a while. I shoot mostly with primes but am realizing I really need a zoom in my bag and I am pretty sure this is the best bang for my buck. If I win this lens, I won’t have to make the decision about whether to buy the canon or the tamron ; )

    Christy Groover says:

    Thank you for the chance to win this awesome lens! I’ve been saving for one and have several friends who have upgraded to the Tamron 24-70 and rave about it! I only have the kit lens and the 50 mm 1.4 and have been saving for an upgrade. Can’t wait to see who wins! :)

  805. 805

    I want to win because I only have one lens. I have a lot of lens envy though!!!! My 18-135 sometimes falls a bit short of what I need. Only goes as low as f/3.5, which makes it challenging in low light conditions. Would LOVE this lens! :)
