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 would like to have this lens to take photos of my busy triplets without having to miss a shot cause I had to change lenses. I’ve been a fan of mcp for a long time on fb. My favorite focal length to shoot is 75mm

    1. I love photographing neighbors children but hate having to switch up lenses between my 28-80 and my 75-300, this would be a perfect “in between lens”
    2. I love shooting on my 75-300. I am just beginning and tend to use more towards the 200-300 end and keep a bit of distance. Indoors however, I’d like some zoom and don’t get enough with my 50.
    3. Already “like” MCP.

    1. This lens is so hugely versatile. 18-270 would encompass my other lenses thereby eliminating my need to swap lenses and get my camera dirty. I could get in close at sporting events (husband coaches highschool football) and also get the close up shots of the crowds. We do a log ot hiking and this lens would be great for the same thing, close ups and telephoto without the risk of changing lenses.
    2. I’m still very amateur at shooting so I’m not sure I have a favorite yet but guessing I would say around 35
    3. liking you now (again)

    -I only have a 50mm lens and am looking to purchase one in this range — winning a free lens would be fantastic!
    -I don’t have a favorite focal length – except that 50mm is all I can do right now
    -I *like* MCP actions on Facebook

    2-It varies.

    Just wondering why all of your contests require a facebook account? I do not have a facebook account because I am opposed to it, and I will not sign up for one. That prevents me from entering any of your contests though.
