      Well, I switched to the Chrome browser and can now see the link for FB and followed through, but I can’t get the entries for FB liking or Pinterest liking. Maybe it’s because I had to skip the Instagram entry. (Don’t have an account for Instagram)

    It would be a dream come true, if I can get this awesome lens. It would provide endless opportunities to take my photography to the next level.

    Wide aperture, 70-200 range, Ultrasonic Silent Drive, Vibration Compensation wrapped in a solid body is an extremely powerful combination – which I would love to have it mounted on my Canon 7D

    I can just imagine what I could have been able to capture, if I had replaced my EF 75-300 (standard lens – no USM, no IS and taken handheld) on my Canon 7D with the Tamron 70-200 2.8 Di VC USD when I was taking the following shot

    I would just love a lens like this, if I could afford one on my own I would have already purchased it. I just dream of beautiful images taken with a lens like this. Thank for making this opportunity reachable. :) Good Luck to all! Whoever gets this will surely be thrilled.

    Ohmygosh…. I can’t afford this outstanding lens on my own, and my business can’t afford for me NOT to get it somehow.

    I haven’t been in a position to celebrate the holidays in 4 years… you can’t IMAGINE what winning this lens will do for my life and my photography.

    I’m tickled PINK for whoever wins of course… and jealous, too 😉
    Thanks so much for the chance to win AND, for pointing me in the direction of some fine pinterest accounts to follow as well.

    OMG.. I could so use this lense. I have been dreaming of a 70-200 2.8 for awhile now. This would make the best Christmas present I have had since I was a kid.. Probably scream like one again to since its been many years..lol.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    I would love to win this lens for a friend I know that is new to photography and just can not afford to camera gear herself. That would make my family’s Christmas!


  9. 200


    Oh! This is the lens I covet, but can’t fit it into the budget right now. Winning one would be the best Cmas gift ever! Thanks for the chance to win one!

    I love the 200 for ease of sneaking up on a subject without disturbing anyone or thing. Sometimes you can get great shots this way especially if you can’t get up close and personal.

  11. 229


    well I like my kit lens because it’s the only one I have, but would love to experience more! I think this lens would work perfect with the work I want to do(actions shots).

  12. 230


    Thank you for such an opportunity!! This is one of my goal lenses!! I have three I would like, and haven’t had the money to get any of them, so this would be fabulous!!!

  13. 232


    Wonderful lens, it’s just that I need to complete my focal lens, I has the tamron 18-200. That worked very well, so I think that this 70-200 works. much in my Canon 5d mark III . Regards and good luck!

  14. 234


    This lens have been on my “wanted” list from the day this lens was announced and need to have it only got increased as I get to read/see reviews of this lens.

    This lens out perform the DSLR manufactures equivalent but also comes with an added bonus that is – it is without the hefty price tag comes with the DSLR manufactures version (especially considering this is f/2.8 with and it is the VC version)

    This would be so nice. I could stop borrowing my husband’s 70-200 when I’m shooting sports. It’s a pain when he has a wedding the same weekend.

  16. 243


    When I saw the giveaway over on FB, I wasn’t sure what all camera brand options were available for the lens. As a yearbook adviser, this lens would come in handy for shooting sports. In fact, if I were to win it, I might request the Nikon version to gift it to our staff.

  17. 260


    I’m setting a goal of improving my photography skills in the coming year….take more photos…study composition and light. This lens would be the perfect addition to help me with achieving that goal.

  18. 270



    It was in my wanted list ever since Tamron introduced it. As I get to read more and more positive reviews, I knew my initial assessment was correct and my desire to add this awesome lens to my camera bag grew.

    Fact that it also complement nicely with my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 (another brilliant work from Tamron) just one more reason why I want this so badly
