Win a Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC PZD Lens for Nikon, Canon or Sony dSLR Cameras

The Prize:

The New Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC PZD Lens for Nikon, Canon or Sony dSLR Cameras (Tamron 28-300VC for Nikon or Canon may be substituted if you have a full frame camera)

Details about the lens:

The World’s Lightest, Smallest 15x Zoom: Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC PZD is 24% Smaller than Previous Model!

The acclaimed Tamron 18-270mm VC all-in-one zoom for APS-C format DSLRs has reached an astonishing new level of compactness, performance, and speed with the addition of PZD (PIEZO Drive), an innovative ultrasonic autofocus motor based on an advanced piezoelectric design. The result is a lens that’s considerably lighter, noticeably shorter, with a much slimmer profile than any previous lens in its class, and that provides faster, quieter auto-focusing.

Signature features that have made this amazingly versatile lens the world standard in its class have been retained. They include a 28-419mm equivalent (15X) zoom range, an improved, lightweight, compact Vibration Compensation (VC) system, macro focusing to 19.3 inches throughout, and, of course, superlative imaging performance.

    I am photographer who only has one camera body, a Nikon D40 and two lens,a 55mm and a 300mm. I would so love to have more to help with my photos. I head to the Smoky Mountains every chance I get to capture the different seasons. So far I am getting good feedback with my photos I share, but I really need more equipment. Thank you for being here to share help and gifts!

    I have been ‘drooling’ over this lens ever since it came out! It just screams, ‘Go got ’em!’ The versatility of this lens is just what I need to catch shots ‘on-the-fly’ without having to stop and change lenses. (I live on an island, so the sandy conditions aren’t always favorable for switching back and forth.) Since I have no preference of focal point I usually end up packing most of my lenses when I go out, but the Tamron 18-270mm Di II VC PZD lens would definately lighten my load when trekking about.
    I have recently subscribed to your Facebook page and would like to take the time here to thank you for all that you make possible through it. Thank you!

    I will be delighted to own the Tamron 18-270mm. Very useful when I can’t carry too much equipment with me. One lens for all.
    I usually shoot wide angle.
    Already liked in FB.

    1. For the past six years of my life I have been enveloped in photography, doing small shoots, but I am still only a semi-professional. This type of mid range zoom range is one of the few crucial lenses that I both need and want. The professional work I have done is wildlife, predominantly in Kenya, which this would be perfect for due to the versatility of this lens.
    2. My favourite focal length is a 50mm, yes, I know it is an obvious choice but I love my nikkor 50mm f1.4 soooo much that I use it practically every day.
    3. I have already liked MCP on facebook

    This would make a great addition to my Nikon D7000, I have a cousin that owns on of these lens and his shots are very impressive. I have shot photos for years now and now I own my first DSLR and I shoot every weekend and a few afternoons during the week. I think this would give me some extra options when I am on my photo outing.

    1. Need desperately as mine is not working and I am missionary building orphanage in Kenya and going back soon, need before I go.
    also the zoom capacity will be great
    2. I shoot children and wildlife mostly, not real professional but what ever the shot takes is what I use
    3. I liked you on face book
    Thanks and Blessings!!!
