    I NEED this lens to help me capture photos of my little clients running amok. My favorite lens, and basically only one I use, is the 85mm 1.4.

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography? As a budding photographer, I think a quality Tamron lens would help me take my work to the next level.

    What type of subjects or images are you wanting to photograph with this lens? I shoot a lot of nature and landscape photos. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of panorama photos.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? I like to use a fairly wide lens. I usually shoot around 30mm.

    1. I’d love to have a 50mm lens and this one qualifies and more.
    2. Close up nature and portraits.
    3. around 50-60mm, but of course it varies depending on the subject.

    1. I don’t own a 17 – 50 lens, and need this to my collection…I have a 28-135 lens, but feel this would open up so much more possibilities for my photography. I think it would be good to try to get into doing some real estate photos as a business.
    2. I would like to incorporate getting into real estate photos. And this would be a good lens for landscape, vacation photos. Tamron makes good lenses, and I would like to add this to my camera bag.
    3. I would say 50mm, since I have a nifty fifty. And 200 for sporting events of my twin boys.

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?

    I only currently have the Tamron 18-270 and am looking to expand my lens options. I feel that this would help me get better images because the F stop is much better. 🙂

    What type of subjects or images are you wanting to photograph with this lens?

    I plan to use this lens to shoot a few up coming weddings that I have coming in 2014.

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? Mine for example is shooting portraits at 50mm on a full frame camera.

    I only have the one lens so I dont specifically have a favorite focal length but I think that I tend to shoot at about 60mm with my current lens or I am zooming out all the way at 270mm.

    This is the must have lens you (i) need.
    My douther and u will use it for baby and kids photography.
    The favoriete is the 35mm 1.8 for our nikon gear…

    1.) I need the lens because I could really use a wider-angle zoom lens with a wider aperture. It would help not only with portraits but also when out hiking and taking photos of various landscapes and other nature stuff. Also it would reall come in handy on set when taking production stills and BTS photos for the various indie film projects I work on.

    2.) I kind of answered this in the first question but I would primarily use it for shooting headshots and portraits.

    3.) Right now my 2 favorite focal lengths are 50mm & 85mm as there are both fixed and have really nice wide apertures. I like the 85mm because it also allows me to get a better focus than the 50mm

    I “need” this lens because I’m looking for an affordable 50mm and nothing is more affordable than “you won!”

    My favorite shots are buildings and portraits.

    50mm is my favorite focal length.

    Thank you.

    I used to have this lens for my D50 and I used it so much that it broke 🙁

    I loved the versatility of it. I could shoot family portraits or race cars when I was the track photographer. I ended up upgrading now to the D3000 and would LOVE to have this lens again!

    My favorite focal length was probably 50mm.

    I’m just getting started into photography with an SLR camera so I could use versatile lenses. I love shooting macro, too, and this would be great for that. Thanks for this great giveaway contest and the opportunity to enter to win!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

    •Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?
    I am learning and trying to get better. I currently use my 50 mm lens most of the time and LOVE it. Looking for new lenses to experiment with and learn more.
    •What type of subjects or images are you wanting to photograph with this lens?
    Almost all of my photographs are of my daughter, family kiddos and her friends. I like to surprise my family and friends with frame worthy shots of their own kiddos as keepsakes.
    •What is your favorite focal length to shoot? Mine for example is shooting portraits at 50mm on a full frame camera.
    Definitely portraits using the 50 mm.
