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 Announcements Contests


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?

  2. Corrie Iavarone on August 15, 2012 at 9:04 am

    I’m sure I could come up with a ton of reasons that I want to win but really it comes down to who doesn’t want a new lens?!

  3. lori on August 15, 2012 at 9:06 am

  4. Junie B on August 15, 2012 at 9:06 am

    Amatuer photographer looking to build up my “toy collection”

  5. Martha Compton on August 15, 2012 at 9:07 am

    How awesome! Thanks to you and Tamron for doing this, and congrats on the image!!!

  6. Paul Browse on August 15, 2012 at 9:07 am

    This would compliment my new (old) 5D mark 1 very nicely indeed!

  7. Mallory on August 15, 2012 at 9:08 am

    This is excellent! Having this lens would just be more incentive to go Full Frame!

  8. Pam Dawson on August 15, 2012 at 9:08 am

    Would love to win this lense!!!! being new to photography its hard to come up with the cash to buy a lense like this.

  9. Michelle on August 15, 2012 at 9:09 am

    I would love to win this lens! Do I *need* a reason?!?!? I thought that spoke for itself! Okay, well I don’t have a lens like this in my bag and I think it would be an amazing option. Thank you!!

  10. Amanda Bumgarner on August 15, 2012 at 9:10 am

    I’ve been saving up for a Tamron lens! I only have a 50mm right now and would LOVE a zoom lens!!! This would make my day!

  11. Anna Hettick on August 15, 2012 at 9:10 am

    AWESOME!!! I’d LOVE to win!!! =) Thanks!!

  12. Dena Howard on August 15, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Would love this lens for studio natural light work for the shallow dof!

  13. Ronnie on August 15, 2012 at 9:11 am

    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!

  14. laura power on August 15, 2012 at 9:11 am

    i LOVE this!! thank you for this contest!! i wold love to win!

  15. Julie Campion on August 15, 2012 at 9:11 am

  18. Julie on August 15, 2012 at 9:12 am

    I would love this lens, the shot you took with it is beautiful. Who would not want it?

  19. Heidi Doroghazi on August 15, 2012 at 9:12 am

    I only have my 50mm lens and would love to have some zooming capabilities on a lens as well.

  20. Priscilla on August 15, 2012 at 9:13 am

    I just love the light being let in the lens and the zoom! Great addition to my collection 🙂

  21. Deborah Farver on August 15, 2012 at 9:13 am

    This lens would be a great walk around lens and more. The photos are beautiful. I love taking pictures of landscapes and this lens would be perfect.

  22. Kerry G on August 15, 2012 at 9:13 am

    Would love this new lens. Currently have a couple of “kit” lenses & am looking to branch into the pro-type lenses. This would really get me on my way.

  23. kara burns on August 15, 2012 at 9:13 am

    What an amazing giveaway!!! This would be a great lens to use in my photography!

  24. Jennifer Dennis on August 15, 2012 at 9:13 am

    I have been looking at this exact lens for my Nikon and I would LOVE to win it for free!

  25. Celine on August 15, 2012 at 9:13 am

    I would love to win the lens. I looked at buying the Canon 24-70 and it was out of my price range. Would love trying and using the Tamron one. 🙂

  26. Misty pelican on August 15, 2012 at 9:14 am

    Would love to win this lens! I’ve been eyeing up the 24-70 for my canon 7d

  27. Liz Garland on August 15, 2012 at 9:14 am

    What a wonderful giveaway, thanks! Well, I am on a VERY tight budget and winning this lens would be amazing, I only have my kit lens and a 75-300mm, thats it, this would be a fantastic addition!

  28. Rowena on August 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I would love to win this lens. I have a new 7d that it would be a perfect fit with. Thanks for the chance!

  29. Leslie Smith on August 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I like really nice lens I can’t afford right now! Would love to add this one to my collection, thanks!

  30. Heather Long on August 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I really need to add this to my bag!!

  31. David on August 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I haven’t won anything since I was 4. Here goes nothing

  32. Jennifer FIke on August 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

    I would love to win this lens that way I could be in more pictures with my kiddos! I can’t hold my 50 at arms length and squeeze us all in 🙂

  33. Terry Beigie on August 15, 2012 at 9:16 am

  34. Liz J on August 15, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Amazing pictures are to be had with this lens! Thanks for the chance.

  35. Aaron John Dee on August 15, 2012 at 9:17 am

    WOW! This lens is really a great walk around lens. The fixed 2.8 aperture will surely help taking photos in low light situations without the use of flash. This lens is really perfect for any dSLR cameras out there!:)

  36. Heidi on August 15, 2012 at 9:17 am

    That lens sounds amazing!!! I’d love to be able to Play with it

  37. Misty pelican on August 15, 2012 at 9:17 am

    Would loooove to win this for my Canon 7d!

  38. Delaney Harbuck on August 15, 2012 at 9:18 am

    This lens would seriously be a Godsend. I have been looking to buy one for quite a while now. I need some nice glass to shoot with. After several years of using the kit & the 50mm, it would be a long awaited upgrade.

  39. Kelli States on August 15, 2012 at 9:18 am

    I’d love to win this! My only lens is a kit lens, I’d love something better!

  40. Steph on August 15, 2012 at 9:18 am

    I would love to win this new lens! But, I guess who wouldn’t!

  41. ChristopherF on August 15, 2012 at 9:18 am

    Been looking at this lens since it came as an option to the Nikon 24-70. I tend to just use my primes to cover this range and this zoom would be helpful in weddings and engagement shoots!

  42. Heather Johnston on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Would love a new lens to help take my skills to a new level!

  43. Roni Hovey on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    I would love to win the Tamron’s New 24-70 Lens because honestly, WHO WOULDN’T? I need to encourage my Canon to hang out with a nice set of friends, I mean, lens’ and what is a better way to introduce my camera to the good focus and exposure than to bring a Tamron 24-70 into her life?

  44. heidiv on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Finally got a url and am doing this thing! Need some glass! Thanks for the contest!

  45. Allison on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Why do I want this lens? Because a photograph can inspire so many emotions. Because it can take my passion to another level. Because winning it for free would be awesome! 🙂 Thank you for the give away and the chance to win such amazing gear.

  46. Anna Rostro on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    It would be a dream come true! =)

  47. marian wigdorovitz on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    IŒÇd love to have it!!! Lately, my financial situation, is not allowing me to refresh my photographic equipment… My fingers are already crossed!!!!!!!

  48. Danielle on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Would love love love this!

  49. Lynn Nolan Molanders on August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Could use a great lens like this for sure. Never have enough great lenses and after reading what Jodie said about the lens in the ad… I want one!! LOL

  50. Kimberly Johanson on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I’d love to be able to use this lens for my portrait and family shoots. It looks so versatile and would make it so much easier to take beautiful pictures.

  51. Aimee Hultzapple on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    This would make an Awesome Birthday present for me (Sept 12) 🙂

  52. Kate on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I would love to do some more landscape work and think this lens could really lend itself well to that. I have a 50mm lens but it would be so nice to get more into each shot!!

  53. Lorraine on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I’d love to win a new lense! I’m new to photography and would love to learn and love a new lense!

  55. Dalayna on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I’d love to have a new lens and I’ve been drooling over the 24-70.

  56. Bekkee Florence on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I really want to win this lens so that I can expand my photography ability. I’m a single mom and have gotten to where I am by fighting for it and never giving up – and I hope to instill this same desire in my daughter, Jaylen. This lens will allow me to consider pursuing my dreams and hopefully help to build a more solid reality of my dreams.

  57. Sharonda S. on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

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

  58. Alex Banaag II on August 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

    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!

  59. Julia on August 15, 2012 at 9:22 am

    I would love to win this; it would take a long time to save up for it otherwise. All my extra funds go to my awesome redheaded 9.5 mo old right now.

  60. Esta Eberhardt on August 15, 2012 at 9:22 am

    I’m looking to get a new lens for weddings so, this would be amazing! 🙂

  61. Shawna on August 15, 2012 at 9:22 am

    I would love to win this lens to get the great clarity and image quality of a zoom lens and get the chance for great portrait photography with the abilty to get a 2.8 aperature with the same lens! Would LOVE to win this!

  62. Mark on August 15, 2012 at 9:23 am

    Oh, to have a lens like this! I am relatively new to digital photography, and would never be able to afford to purchase a lens like this. I would absolutely love to expand my abilities by using this lens.

  63. Kimberly Shaffer on August 15, 2012 at 9:23 am

    What a great giveaway! Thanks! 🙂

  64. Sarah J on August 15, 2012 at 9:24 am

    This lens seems like it would be the perfect range for me! I would love this lens to help me take my photography to the next level!

  65. Anna Rostro on August 15, 2012 at 9:25 am

    I would love this lens! I am just starting out also and don’t really have the money to go out and buy an awesome lens! It would be a blessing! 仫

  66. Susan Petrowiak on August 15, 2012 at 9:25 am

    I just accidentally left my 85mm lens out in the rain after a shoot. :(. I need a new lens!

  67. Whitney Muchmore on August 15, 2012 at 9:25 am

    I would love to win this lens, thanks for the chance to win.

  68. Candice Smith on August 15, 2012 at 9:25 am

    I’m currently operating with kit lenses, so this would be a step up for me.

  69. Bethany Bearmore on August 15, 2012 at 9:26 am

    Great giveaway! This would be an awesome birthday present for me and I totally need a new lens :).

  70. Christiana Kirkham on August 15, 2012 at 9:26 am

    I would like to win the Tamron lens because I’m an aspiring photographer. I have a few lenses that I enjoy using when my family and I take weekend trips, exploring Arizona. They are nothing fancy, so I would LOVE a really nice lens!

  71. Irma (Maria) Allen on August 15, 2012 at 9:26 am

    Thanks for the giveaway. This is awesome!! 🙂

  72. Kristi on August 15, 2012 at 9:26 am

    It would work fabulously on my Nikon D7000!!!!

  73. Lisa on August 15, 2012 at 9:26 am

    Oh my gosh!!! I would LOOOVE to win a 24-70! I have been eyeing this lens forever but still just have my 35mm/1.8.

  74. Larissa on August 15, 2012 at 9:26 am

    I have been eyeing this lens and would love to make it the default lens on my D800!

  75. Kasey on August 15, 2012 at 9:27 am

    I would love to take my photography to a new level with this lens!!

  76. Robin N. on August 15, 2012 at 9:28 am

    I would love to win this lens. I need something with the vibration compensation as I just can’t seem to hold the camera steady.

  77. Karen Dewitt on August 15, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Thid is so great. I’ve been looking at this lens just dreaming of being its new owner. This would be so awesome to actually win it instead. Fingers and toes crossed. Hoping hoping hoping!!

    What an awesome prize! This lens would be a welcome addition to my arsenal.

  81. Ashley on August 15, 2012 at 9:29 am

    I have a million and one reasons in my head as to why I would love to own this lens for my Nikon. 🙂 Really would be nice to take some amazing photos with a better lens than the one I have.

  82. Amanda Taylor on August 15, 2012 at 9:29 am

    I would love to win this lens! I’ve not used one but I’ve read about them and the 24-70 just seems so versatile like one of those lenses that you may never take off your camera. I would love to have a lens that could do that for me. 🙂

  83. Lindsay on August 15, 2012 at 9:31 am

    This lens looks awesome!!! My D700 would be so happy:) Thanks!!

  84. Shari on August 15, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Winning this lens will give me a more suitable lens for the every day shooting that I do with my Family and events. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  85. Dana Mitchell on August 15, 2012 at 9:31 am

    I am just starting out and I can’t really afford to get new lenses at the moment so to win one would be to help me grow as a photographer with out the stress of trying to fit it into the budget.

  86. Erin on August 15, 2012 at 9:32 am

    I am just starting up and would LOVE to get this lens!! Thanks for giving us the oportunity!!

  87. Katie on August 15, 2012 at 9:32 am

    What an incredible picture! I don’t have any Tamron lenses, so winning this would be a fun way to discover what they have to offer.

  88. Cassandra Eastman on August 15, 2012 at 9:33 am

    I would love to win this for my friend who has a great photography business!

  89. Kristi on August 15, 2012 at 9:33 am

    A Tamron lens would work fabulously with my Nikon D7000!

  90. Austin Banderas on August 15, 2012 at 9:33 am

    I love to document the world. With Tamron lenses and my Nikon cameras I can freeze time, so that future generations can enjoy the world we live in.

  91. aclarke on August 15, 2012 at 9:33 am

    Ahhh I can’t imagine anything more awesome than hearing the news that I’ve won this amazing lens!I’ve had my eye on it for a good few months now-just saving up for it!I’d LOVE to be the winner! 😀

  96. Erica on August 15, 2012 at 9:34 am

    I would LOVE to win this….cuz I surely can’t afford to buy it! As of now, I’m truckin’ along with my 50mm.

  97. Omar A. on August 15, 2012 at 9:34 am

    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.

  98. Melinda Walters on August 15, 2012 at 9:34 am

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this awesome lens! I can definitely use it!

  99. Melissa Simon on August 15, 2012 at 9:34 am

    I would DIE for this lens!!!

  100. Rachel on August 15, 2012 at 9:35 am

    The 24-70mm is on the top of my wish list! I was able to test the Tamron out on Saturday at my local camera store:)

  101. Amanda on August 15, 2012 at 9:35 am

    Vibration reduction is a must for me! This lens is on my wish list!

  102. Christina on August 15, 2012 at 9:35 am

    I am in desperate need of a new lens, especially since our family is expanding in Dec!

  103. Melissa Reese on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    i would love to win this! i’m still new, but my business is growing and this would be AWESOME to have

  104. Shanya Smith on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    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.

  105. Deb Turner on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    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. Alexandra Keller on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    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!!

  107. Michelle on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Pick me!!

  108. Andrea Brink on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    I would love to win this lens as I am just starting out with photogoraphy. Right now it is a hobby, but I would love to learn more and turn it into something more.

  109. Paige Rynberg on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    I would sooooo love to win this!

  110. Richard Horsfield on August 15, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Love to win this lens to upgrade from the stock lens that came with my camera.24-70 is such a versatile range for images ranging from intimate portraits to vibrant landscapes, and I am sure that this lens would help me get even better images.

  111. Rachel on August 15, 2012 at 9:37 am

    I would love this for the vibration control, and an awesome zoom lens… I have been eyeing this for a while!

  112. Kate on August 15, 2012 at 9:37 am

    This would be brilliant!! It would just give me the flexibility I currently dont have and I wouldnt have to be ‘constantly’ changing lenses. Changing lenses wastes so much time and often looses the shot or the ambience. Fingers crossed xxx

  113. Chrissy Cvetkovic on August 15, 2012 at 9:38 am

    This would be a wonderful addition to my new Nikon d7000. I’m constantly trying to learn and get better to help get the most memories for my baby girl and family! Thanks for the chance to win! 😉

  114. Jennifer Tramel on August 15, 2012 at 9:38 am

    I would be absolutely THRILLED to win this lens! Wide angle lenses tend to be more expensive and sadly, I’m not able to afford them.

  115. Shawna Sweeney on August 15, 2012 at 9:38 am

    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!

Money’s been tight with all the bills that come with taking care of two kiddos and a loss of a job, and this would give me a good start at accumulating more professional gear.

  210. Sara Jennings on August 15, 2012 at 10:01 am

  214. Julia on August 15, 2012 at 10:03 am

    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. I also have a bit of shake in my hands and having the VR would be a huge benefit!

  215. Collene on August 15, 2012 at 10:03 am

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity!! I would love this lens…the VC and F2.8…YUMMY!!!

  217. Keri on August 15, 2012 at 10:04 am

    I would LOVE to have the new lens for future sessions!! I have been looking at this lens forever wanting and waiting until I could afford it. That hasn’t happened yet 🙁

  218. Samantha on August 15, 2012 at 10:05 am

    OMG a wide-angle lens would definitely be wonderful to have in my photography arsenal. I love being outdoors and to be able to shoot what I see instead of just a version would be wonderful. Jodi your photos are amazing from Australia with this lens!

  219. Jenn B on August 15, 2012 at 10:05 am

    I have been wanting a lens like this for a while – would love the flexibility it provides for portraits.

  223. Donna on August 15, 2012 at 10:06 am

    I would love to have a wide angle zoom lens. I do landscapes and that would add an awesome extra dimension to my photos. I have been “needing” a wide angle zoom for a while. Being a typical photog, I always “need” something! LOL

  224. Melissa Carroll on August 15, 2012 at 10:07 am

    Wow, I would love to have this lens. I’ve been wanting the 24-70 for a couple of years but have been unable to save the money for it. Good luck everyone!!

    I’ve heard such great things about it! Would be so awesome for a much loved hobby!

  228. April on August 15, 2012 at 10:08 am

    Would love to own an awesome lens like this, right now I only have the kit lens!!

  229. Allison on August 15, 2012 at 10:08 am

  230. Preston on August 15, 2012 at 10:09 am

  231. Danyelle on August 15, 2012 at 10:09 am

    I would love, love, love to win this lens! I’m working with a 50mm right now, and would benefit from the flexibility. Fingers crossed…

  235. Charlotte on August 15, 2012 at 10:10 am

I would love to win this Tamron lens for my Nikon camera. A 2.8 lens is on my list of things that I would like to purchase next along with a wide angle lens.

  236. Melissa on August 15, 2012 at 10:11 am

    I would love to win the 24-70 Tamron lens as it is a range I have been eyeing up for a while now! Great giveaway!

    Awesome give away!

  243. Rebekah Fountain on August 15, 2012 at 10:13 am

    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.

  244. Bernadette Miller on August 15, 2012 at 10:14 am

    Its my 40th birthday next week and this lens is on my birthday list!!

  245. Tracy Cepelak on August 15, 2012 at 10:14 am

    I would love to win this lens! I recently started my own childrens photography business and this lens would help me capture some great pictures while chasing all those kids around!

  246. Holly on August 15, 2012 at 10:14 am

    Would LOVE, LOVE a new lens!!

  247. Heather Agnew on August 15, 2012 at 10:14 am

  248. bri on August 15, 2012 at 10:14 am

    Hoping to do some traveling next year, this lens would be the perfect one to bring with!

  249. Kim on August 15, 2012 at 10:15 am

    This would be a great lens to win! So excited!

  250. Stefanie on August 15, 2012 at 10:16 am

    I would love to take my photography to a new level, especially now that I’m possibly moving to the beautiful city of Seattle! The mountains and water deserve the best possible lens 🙂

  251. Matt on August 15, 2012 at 10:16 am

    I would love to have a pro-level lens to start shooting (more) fabulous portraits and events.

  252. Emily Bauer on August 15, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Yay! Would LOOOOVE to win this!! 🙂

  253. Catherine Alkire on August 15, 2012 at 10:17 am

  254. Mickey on August 15, 2012 at 10:18 am

    I would love to win this lens!!!

  255. Jeanie on August 15, 2012 at 10:19 am

    Just got a new camera! A nikon d90! And I could definitely use some new lenses!

  256. Catherine Alkire on August 15, 2012 at 10:19 am

    I commented, but it isn’t showing up!

  257. Jennifer lyman on August 15, 2012 at 10:20 am

    This would be fantastic if I won! I volunteer taking pictures at our local BMX track and just had to purchase a new camera because my fuji film that I got in 2003 finally died on me. I purchased a canon t2i and I love it but I need a new lens for it! Crossing my fingers I win!

  258. Dorean on August 15, 2012 at 10:20 am

    ….because I NEEEEED this lens! 🙂

  259. Brenda on August 15, 2012 at 10:20 am

    This would be awsome to win. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win this fantastic lens.

  260. Melissa on August 15, 2012 at 10:21 am

    I’d love to win! Great Giveaway!

  261. Rebecca on August 15, 2012 at 10:21 am

    Tamron makes great lenses. I own a Sony A200 and it is great to have the versatility to use different brands of lenses with it. I currently own a Tamron 70-300 zoom lens and would LOVE to try out the 2.8 lens on this camera!

  262. Mona McCall on August 15, 2012 at 10:22 am

    I would love to have a lens because one can never have to much equipment to bond with 🙂

  263. Lindsey on August 15, 2012 at 10:22 am

    I would love this zoom lens. I shoot a lot of children and this would really help!

  264. Sharon on August 15, 2012 at 10:22 am

    I’ve never owned or even shot with a Tamron lens. Would love to take one out.. shoot a show or other event.

  265. Kristin on August 15, 2012 at 10:23 am

    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. Jennifer lyman on August 15, 2012 at 10:23 am

    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. Tammi Scritchfield on August 15, 2012 at 10:24 am

    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).

  268. Kimberly T on August 15, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I would love to win this lens! Would be a great addition since I’m just using my kit lens and fixed 50 mm right now!

  269. Charlotte on August 15, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I would love to win this lens! A 2.8 lens has been on my list of things I want to purchase next and this Tamron lens would be perfect for my Sport & Portrait Photography business!!

  270. April Ekwurtzel on August 15, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I would LOVE the opportunity to own such an amazing lens, that I would never be able to purchase on my own!

  271. Marissa on August 15, 2012 at 10:25 am

    I have been looking for the perfect lens that I can do everything with. Neither of my lens’ can shoot at F/2.8 and sometimes I wish they did. I take pictures of everything, my photography is not subject to one thing so this lens would be amazing in furthering my photography. I love that it can work with three different camera brands. I am happy to have finally found the lens to suit my photography needs!

  272. shantel holt on August 15, 2012 at 10:25 am

    this is an amazing giveaway! it has been several years since i have been able to add any gear to my small collection…this would fit in perfectly! yay, so exciting!

  273. Mirthful on August 15, 2012 at 10:25 am

    This would be the perfect upgrade for a daily lens for me, I’m still using the kit lens I bought with the Canon 550D and though I like it, it’s hardly the bees knees.

  274. Melissa on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    This lens has been on my wishlist for a while!

  275. Jenny Y on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    I’d love to have the vibration compensation feature! I already have and love Tamron lenses!

  276. Jen B. on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    I’ve been eyeing this lens for a while now but have yet to be able to afford it! Just love the zoom range and the low aperature! Would be amazing to win it! Thanks for the opportunity!

  277. Kena Totsch on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    I have two Tamron lenses now and love them both so I would love to add this one to my inventory!

  278. Andria Pearce on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    Hopefully this isnt a second entry! (Cant see my first comment) Would love to win! I need this lens!

  279. Amber on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    Oh, I’ve been researching wider angle lenses for weeks – definitely my next purchase – so this would be perfect!

  280. Melodee on August 15, 2012 at 10:26 am

    I would love to win this lens because I would love taking beautiful photos of family, friends and places with it. Photos of people and places you love with a lens you love!

  281. Rebecca on August 15, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Tamron makes great lenses. I own a Sony a200 and love the versatility of being able to use different brands of lenses with it. I use a Tamron 70-300 lens and love the results. The 2.8 lens would make a GREAT addition

  282. Mayra on August 15, 2012 at 10:28 am

    Would love to win this lens, it will be an awesome way to start my photography carrer

  283. Adrienne on August 15, 2012 at 10:29 am

    I would LOVE to win this lens. I just officially started my own photography business and I’ve been renting this lens while I save enough to buy it. This would be FABULOUS!!

  284. Heidi Kalish on August 15, 2012 at 10:30 am

    I am a newbie photographer and would LOVE to add this lens to my collection! I currently only have the kit lens and my nifty fifty :). I have been eyeing this exact lens but don’t have the funds for it right now. This would be a dream! Thanks for a great giveaway!!!

  285. Kelly on August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I want to win this because I still shoot film and I need a fast zoom lens, since I can’t change my ISO for each frame.

  286. Taalke on August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I have heard of Tamron and would love to try one..my kit lenses just aren’t tack sharp….

  287. Jennifer Madigan on August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I own a kit lens and would LOVE to expand my horizons. I’ve been saving to purchase a new lens and this would be amazing.

  288. Chris on August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I’d really love to win this! It’d take my image quality up to the next level!

  289. Stefanie on August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

  291. Courtney on August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

  292. Judy R on August 15, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Would love to win!!

  293. Missy Thornhill on August 15, 2012 at 10:32 am

    I would love this lens because it will help me in my photography business, and I love to experiment with new equipment 🙂

    This lens would be a dream come true for me. I would be over the moon if I won it! Good luck everyone!!!

  295. Rebecca on August 15, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Tamron makes great lenses. I own a Sony a200 and love the versatility of being able to use different brands of lenses with it. I use a Tamron 70-300 lens and love the results. The 2.8 lens would make a GREAT addition!

  296. Katie Hallmark on August 15, 2012 at 10:33 am

    I would like to win this lens because it would really put a BANG in my wedding photography!

  297. Tracy Shinners on August 15, 2012 at 10:34 am

    No brainer!!!!

  298. Brecken on August 15, 2012 at 10:35 am

    I need a new lens! I’ve been in a photography slump, and learning a new lens is just what I need to get back into the groove.

  299. Rebecca on August 15, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I would love to win this lens because I’ve been looking at new lens for awhile and this would give me the boost I need for my business. Thank you for the offer!

  300. Vanessa on August 15, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I want to win this lens because I dream of being a birth photographer. I shot my first birth the other night and am in love. My dream is to be able to do more of this and I think this lens would be incredibly versitle!

  301. Shawna Ledbetter on August 15, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I hateeee raffle copter but I love ur site so im attempting :)Going to have to do some research on the Fstop of this lens!

  302. Kate Alexander on August 15, 2012 at 10:38 am

  303. Cathy Heinz on August 15, 2012 at 10:38 am

  304. Bethany M on August 15, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Oh man, I would LOVE to win this lens. There’s no way I could afford it right now but boy oh boy would it get a lot of use!

  305. Adele Lamb on August 15, 2012 at 10:39 am

    I love. I want. I neeeeeeeed! 🙂 (crossing ALL fingers….toes….arms, legs – everything I can!)

  306. Catlin Wilson on August 15, 2012 at 10:39 am

    I’ve been researching lenses and this one seems like a great edition to anyone’s kit. I would like to be able to get shots like yours. I love to walk in my downtown area and shoot but I feel limited with my 50mm sometimes. I believe that this lens has a the right focal lengths to help me with shooting some street photography.

  307. Elizabeth Golob on August 15, 2012 at 10:39 am

    I’m just starting out and would love to add a new lens to my collection. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  308. Jennifer on August 15, 2012 at 10:39 am

    I’ve been eyeing this lens. I would love to add a great zoom to my lens line up to help with shooting moving & busy toddlers/preschoolers.

  309. bdpaco on August 15, 2012 at 10:40 am

    I have used Tamron lenses in the past and love the quality of the build and the performance of the lenses. This is the focal length that I am wanting to add to my kit…Usually I shoot only primes but as a wedding photographer i feel I would be better served with a nice short zoom…

  310. Geoff Matthews on August 15, 2012 at 10:40 am

    Perfect prize and I am sure that it will have a perfectly enjoyable life coming to stay with me in Scotland.

  311. gillian schaadt on August 15, 2012 at 10:40 am

    This lense is a must have for my upcoming Turks & Caicos trip!! Please, please, please pick ME!!!

  312. Kayla Smith on August 15, 2012 at 10:40 am

    I can’t afford amazing lenses like this but I know it would add so much to my collection and so I would love to win it! Thank you so much for the chance!

  313. maggie on August 15, 2012 at 10:41 am

    I would LOVE to win! It would help me take my photography to the next level and help me out tremendously as I can’t afford the big lenses (yet). 🙂

  314. Adriana Janky on August 15, 2012 at 10:41 am

    The lens would be the prefect go to lens.

  315. shantel on August 15, 2012 at 10:41 am

    what and awesome giveaway! it has been several years since i have been able to add any gear to my small collection! yay, so exciting!

  316. Carmen on August 15, 2012 at 10:41 am

    I want to win this lens so bad!

  317. Joshua Tousey on August 15, 2012 at 10:42 am

    I am an Entertainment and headshost photographer desperately needing to upgrade from the 28-135mm. This would be a go to lens!!

  318. Danielle Holjeson on August 15, 2012 at 10:42 am

    Oh my goodness! If I won this lens it would be a dream come true, I only have my crappy, noisy 18-55mm kit lens aaaaaaah!!

  319. Kristi aka FiberFool on August 15, 2012 at 10:43 am

    I would love to win as I’ve never ventured beyond my kit lense and a nifty fifty. And with my husband in grad school and my working just as an administrative temp we don’t have the spare $$ for me to purchase any goodies for my camera.

  320. Betsy on August 15, 2012 at 10:43 am

    I’ve had my eye on the 24-70 lens for a while now. Would love to win it to take great pictures of my growing toddler!

  321. elizabeth b on August 15, 2012 at 10:43 am

    i would love to be able to take my photography to the next level. i primarily use a prime lens for my shoots, and occasionally use my “kit” lenses. saving up for a new lens has been a challenge so winning this lens would be a blessing.

  322. Darren Sheldon on August 15, 2012 at 10:43 am

    This lens would make such a differnce in my photography, especially with indoor sports close to the court and my beginning portrait photography exploits…. Moving from a prime which is on my budget to a zoom would be so great… 🙂

  323. Amy on August 15, 2012 at 10:45 am

    I definitely need a new lens. This is the exact one I’ve been looking at too! So excited!!! 🙂

  324. Shelby on August 15, 2012 at 10:45 am

    Id love to have this lens because I recently switched from Nikon to canon and this lens would be an awesome addition to my equipment!

  325. Angela King on August 15, 2012 at 10:46 am

    The 24-70 is missing in my arsenal of lenses. It would be great for weddings, dogs, kids and just everyday portraiture. I love Jodi’s photos from Australia! I also love that it comes so highly recommended by Jodi. Thanks!

  326. Abish Tatum on August 15, 2012 at 10:46 am

    I would love to win this lens because it’s awesome! It would take me to a new level in my portrait photography! I really really want it!!!

  327. Russ Dam on August 15, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I’d love to win the lens. It would be a great next step up for me.

  328. Michelle Hires on August 15, 2012 at 10:48 am

    I have had my eye on a 24-70 for a LONG time. I don’t have a lens that goes wider than 50mm so this would be a great addition to my lens lineup! I absolutely LOVE my Tamrom 90mm so I know their products are great quality!

  329. Mary on August 15, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I’m addicted to fast lenses . . . . this one will grow my collection nicely if I win!

  330. Cathy Heinz on August 15, 2012 at 10:50 am

    I currently shoot with a kit 18-55 lens. I would love to see what I could do with this baby!!Much love,Cathy

  331. Christine Marie on August 15, 2012 at 10:50 am

    I would love to win this awesome lens to take my photography to the next level. With 2 kids in college, I just cannot afford the luxury of a new lens right now . . .

  332. Melissa Abbott on August 15, 2012 at 10:51 am

    I would love to win this lense just for everyday use!!! I love the range on it and I could never afford to buy myself one!!!! 🙂

  333. Jody Carbone on August 15, 2012 at 10:51 am

    I’m just getting back to photography after many years away from it (all of my gear was stolen in Barcelona). I would love to add to my Canon and Tamron collection with this lens! Most of my work is landscape photography, with a few events sprinkled in. The focal range is perfect for both. I promise, no snapshots! :)Thanks for giving us the opportunity!

  334. Shannon on August 15, 2012 at 10:52 am

    I would love this lens it would give me great flexibility with my photos!

  335. Rebecca D on August 15, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I would love to win this lens because I do not have one of this quality and it would be so nice to add to my collection when photogoraphing items on my world travels!

  336. Sherry Stewart on August 15, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I have been wanting this lens for a while now but couldn’t spend the money on it. I think my camera would like it too. 🙂

  337. p on August 15, 2012 at 10:54 am

    LOVE Tamron lenses…this would be a great addition to my bag!!!

  338. Karen Flores on August 15, 2012 at 10:55 am

    I’m trying to start up my photography business again. I am currently unemployed. This would be awesome!!!

  339. Julie on August 15, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I’ve been wanting the Canon version of this lens but cannot afford. The VC in this lens is an added bonus.

  340. Paul on August 15, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I only have 2 lenses and would love a good one to help with seriously learning about composition and taking photos.

  341. Amy Dí©sirí©e Goldstein on August 15, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I would love to win this lens. I recently upgraded to the Nikon D800 and I need some wide aperture, full frame lenses. I only own variable aperture DX lenses, so I am not getting the full potential out of my new camera. Plus, the vibration compensation would be an amazing thing to have when photographing in low light. Thanks for doing this give away!

  342. Christina on August 15, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I would love to have this lens to photograph my son’s basketball games.

  343. Bretta Ogburn on August 15, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I would love to win this for my son’s new photography business

  344. Erin B on August 15, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I only have 2 lenses, one being the kit lens, and would love to be able to add another lens to my collection, but money is tight.

  345. Meredith on August 15, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I would love to win this lens. I have been planning a trip to Ireland for years and would love to take this lens with me!

  346. Sue on August 15, 2012 at 10:59 am

    i would love the lens. i am a hobbyist photographer and would love to use it for wildlife.

  347. LaShawn on August 15, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I really would love to win this lens simply because I can’t afford it right now and I love the older version of this lens that I have now! And the VC is an added bonus!

  348. bf clark on August 15, 2012 at 11:00 am

    This is one of those “dream” lenses on my list. I would love to win one to fulfill that dream! Keeping my fingers crossed for this one!

  349. Staci Roe on August 15, 2012 at 11:00 am

    A person can never have to many lenses, right? And since I just spent $300 on camera/photogrphy accessories, it would be great to win something.

  350. Stephanie on August 15, 2012 at 11:00 am

    I would love to win this! I’m a wedding photographer and right now I rent a 24-70mm lens almost every weekend to shoot with. I’d love to OWN it myself but since it’s my first year of business, it doesn’t quite fit into my budget. :(Thanks so much for such a generous giveaway!!!

  351. Diana Muniz on August 15, 2012 at 11:00 am

    I would love own this lens…. Dear God please let the random number generator pick me. In Jesus’ name Amen!

  352. Barbie Plankenhorn on August 15, 2012 at 11:01 am

    I’d love to win this lens!!! I’ve used the Canon version and it’s such a great versatile lens! Great addition to any photgraphers bag!

  353. Karin on August 15, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Would love, love, love to win this lens!

  354. Nichole Joslin on August 15, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Would love this lens to expand my photographoic vision

  355. Sara on August 15, 2012 at 11:01 am

    I’ve been eying up this lens. My camera bag is pretty empty at this point (I only have a 50mm lens) and would love a zoom. I’d really like to get into taking portraits and have already signed up for a couple photography classes this fall. This lens would help me get on my way!

  356. Amanda Woolverton on August 15, 2012 at 11:04 am

    II am a new photographer and only own a prime lense. I have heard great things about this lense! I need some zoom and flexibility! Thanks for this chance, this girl would love to win this!!

  357. Angelica on August 15, 2012 at 11:05 am

    I would LOVE to win this! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  358. Dotti on August 15, 2012 at 11:05 am

    This would be an amazing lens!

  359. Angelica on August 15, 2012 at 11:06 am

    I would LOVE to win this! Thanks for the opportunity!

  360. Katrina Brown on August 15, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Like everyone, I would LOVE to win the Tamron 24-70mm VC Lens! As a mom of two and trying to do what I love within my means doesn’t always work out! So to have that lens would be such an amazing gift! Really! Not only would it be a great addition, but it means new adventures for me on the other end of that lens… And that’s the best part! And my Nikon would be so happy! 🙂

  361. Shanya Smith on August 15, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Ok I posted a comment earlier but I don’t see it so excuse me if this is a repeat ;o) I would like to win the Tamron lens because I have always been weary about using anything but Nikon glass!! I have heard good things about the Tamron Lens but have still been a little hesitant to purchase one. Winning would give me the opportunity to see if I love the Tamron as much as I do my Nikon Lenses!!

  362. Sara L. on August 15, 2012 at 11:08 am

    My camera bag with my Canon and ALL my lenses was stolen from my car three years ago. I’m slowly building it back up again and this would be an AMAZING lens to add back to my small collection.

  363. Nancy A on August 15, 2012 at 11:08 am

    I currently have the 24-70 f2.8 and love it I definitely would love to upgrade it to a VC version!

  364. Danyelle on August 15, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I can’t afford to spend that much on a lens for myself right now and it looks fantastic!

  365. Meggan Hayes on August 15, 2012 at 11:10 am

    I would first use it take pictures of the bear that keeps knocking over our garbage can. 🙂

  366. Melissa on August 15, 2012 at 11:11 am

    I would love this lens because I’m trying to get my husband to shoot more with me and I’d love for him to have a 24-70 to use as well. It would be a nice addition to my little photography family.

  367. Miranda Stoddard on August 15, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Thanks for the giveway. I would love this lens for my Nikon D300! :o)

  374. Geri Scalzi on August 15, 2012 at 11:16 am

    This lens would be such a wonderful addition to my camera equipment! I do a lot of boating in Lake Tahoe and elsewhere and I know the vibration reduction would be an improvement over what I currently have in the way of lenses. Thank you for the opportunity to win this lens!

  375. Denine on August 15, 2012 at 11:17 am

    I would love this lens. I have been looking into it for a while. It would be a great addition to my collection. You are such an inspiring photographer. I hope to be as great as you one day.

  376. Jody Carbone on August 15, 2012 at 11:17 am

    I have just gotten back into photography after a long pause, all of my gear was stolen a few years ago in Barcelona. I’m just rebuilding my equipment collection, this lens will fit nicely with my other Tamron and Canon lenses. Most of my work is landscapes and people, this focal range would be perfect for both.Thank you for giving us the opportunity!

  377. Stacey on August 15, 2012 at 11:17 am

    I would love to win this lens – it would give me greater control and clarity for my shots! Thanks for this giveaway!

  378. O Schrock on August 15, 2012 at 11:19 am

  381. Kari Ramsey on August 15, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I only have a kit lens right now and would love to have a quality lens. From what I have read, the Tameron 24-70 is amazing! I would be so excited to win one. And of course I would be telling everyone I know!

  382. Chris on August 15, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I would love to win the Tamron Lens. The pictures I have seen taken with it look AWESOME!

  383. Alicia C on August 15, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I have been wanting to try a Tamron lens for a while so this is a perfect opportunity to make that happen!

  384. Jodie on August 15, 2012 at 11:22 am

    would love a chance to win!!

  385. Sarah on August 15, 2012 at 11:22 am

    I am been looking at this lens for a while. I really need a new, sharp, great portrait lens. However, as like many others I just can not afford it right now. So this would be amazing if I could win it! Thanks!!

  386. kelli miller holmes on August 15, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Winning this lens would help take my photography to another level. I only have one lens right now, so this would open up a whole new world!

  387. Jessica on August 15, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I am in desperate need of a new lens that will allow for greater flexibility indoors. I have had my eye on this lens for a year and would ecstatic to win this as I know it will help me to continue to grow my business. Thank-you for the opportunity!

  388. Dawn Meier on August 15, 2012 at 11:24 am

    I work for a charity caring for orphaned children in third-world countries – I really need a lens like this to share photos with our donors! I would be able to shoot more without flash in the variety of lighting conditions, and it would be a great travel lens! Everyone I know who has this lens LOVES it!

  389. AmyK on August 15, 2012 at 11:25 am

    I would love this lens for my son’s baseball games 🙂

  390. Colleen on August 15, 2012 at 11:25 am

  391. Meghan on August 15, 2012 at 11:26 am

    I would love to win this! I’ve been looking at this lens, but with a baby girl, income goes to diapers. haha It would be great to win it!

  392. Kristi on August 15, 2012 at 11:26 am

    This lens would be great on my Nikon D7000!!

  393. Karen Bentz on August 15, 2012 at 11:27 am

    I love taking pictures of my children, this one’s would help me truake great pictures

  394. Colleen on August 15, 2012 at 11:28 am

    Would love some new glass!!! I have had my eye on this but just can’t justify the cost right now. To win it would be awesome.

  395. Nichole on August 15, 2012 at 11:28 am

    Thank you for doing this. I’ve wanted this lens for quite a while, but haven’t been able to afford it.

  396. Laura G on August 15, 2012 at 11:28 am

    I recently switched over to Nikon from Sony and sold off all my Sony lenses. I’ve spent a fortune on new lenses and absolutely cannot afford a new 24-70 for my nikon for at least another year–and I’m dying without one!!!!

  397. Lisa on August 15, 2012 at 11:29 am

    I would love to have this lens because I don’t have any really good lenses. I just started learning photography at the beginning of this year and I need a quality lens!

  398. Kelli on August 15, 2012 at 11:30 am

    Congratulations on being in the magazine.

  399. Lisa B. on August 15, 2012 at 11:31 am

    I would love a new lens, because I just started out in photography and I really love it. I would love to be able to expand my collection, knowledge and learn to take photos!

  400. Rachel French on August 15, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Would love to win this lens! Just getting started in photography and only have one lens. This would be great. 🙂

  401. Cynthia Rainey on August 15, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Would love to win this! Just switched to Canon and have only one sad lens. Have used Tamrons in the past on other cameras. Thanks for the opportunity!

  402. Sue on August 15, 2012 at 11:37 am

    I would love to start expanding my horizons with a new lens. Sometimes I feel slightly limited in what I can capture with my current lens. As always THANK YOU to MCP for great products, great ideas and fun give-away’s!

  403. Carol Magalhaes on August 15, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I’d love to win these amazing lens because recently somebody (at my baby shower party) dropped my 50mm and broke it, and now I just have the kit lens :((((( so that would come in handyyyy 😀

  404. Jennifer Duffy on August 15, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I am currently trying to update my equipment and this is one of the lenses I need for wedding Photography.

  405. Megan on August 15, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I recently broke my favorite portrait lens, and money is tight, so I haven’t been able to replace it. This would not only replace it, but upgrade it as well.

  406. Dorina on August 15, 2012 at 11:40 am

    I would love this lens, won’t lie to you, I’ve had my eye on this lens for a while now, and being that I am going to school to take photography it would be a great tool for my schooling and it would work wonders with my classes and photo taking.

  407. Kaitlyn on August 15, 2012 at 11:40 am

    I would love to win so I can improve my photography!!

  408. Lynette on August 15, 2012 at 11:42 am

    I would be beside myself with happiness if I won this lens!

  410. Jessica Cross on August 15, 2012 at 11:43 am

    It would be so amazing if I won this lens because I am making photography a lifestyle and have learned so much from MCP. It’s just a little hard to be your best, when you don’t have the best equipment.

  411. michelle burke on August 15, 2012 at 11:43 am

    This lens has been on my wish list for a very long time! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  412. carlin on August 15, 2012 at 11:45 am

    I would like to win this lens because it is my dream lens. I feel like I have tried so many lenses, bought some, rented some, and the 24-70 is the only one that really makes my work with kids and families pop. 🙂

  413. Lee Ann Markham on August 15, 2012 at 11:47 am

    This would be great for newborn and maternity shoots in my smaller studio space in my basement. 🙂 Thanks for the great giveaway!

  414. Tom Douglas on August 15, 2012 at 11:47 am

    I would LOVE to win this lens. I am limited by the 2 lenses I have been able to afford for my Canon, the kit lens and a nifty fifty. I think this lens would be a great addition to my kit, and one that I could never afford to buy myself.

  415. Aileen on August 15, 2012 at 11:47 am

    I would luv to take one with me on my trip to Spain in October! Thanks for this awesome giveaway.

  416. Nathan on August 15, 2012 at 11:49 am

    I need to upgrade my lens, so winning this lens will do the trick!

  417. Amie K. on August 15, 2012 at 11:51 am

    I would love to win this lens simply because it’s better than any that I currently have. 🙂

  418. Beth VanDyke on August 15, 2012 at 11:51 am

    I have the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 lens and love it but I would love to have this lens that has more on the wide end!

  419. Debra McNinch on August 15, 2012 at 11:53 am

    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. Erik Hawkinson on August 15, 2012 at 11:53 am

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

  421. Alyssa Harper on August 15, 2012 at 11:54 am

    I need need NEED this lens! It’s seized my heart, and I really don’t know if I can probably live without it at this point. 😉

  422. Katie on August 15, 2012 at 11:54 am

    I’d love a zoom lens to use with my kiddos, and something a little wider than my 50 to use indoors! Thanks for the chance to win!

  423. alexis on August 15, 2012 at 11:54 am

    thanks for the giveaway! I’ve been coveting this lens for a LONG time. I obviously think it would be a fabulous lens to add to my camera bag!

  424. Nancy S on August 15, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Looks like an awesome lens!

  425. Dana Vastano on August 15, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Id love to win one of these lenses to help me with my photography business. I am about to marry a man in the air force, and we’ll be moving a lot, so having a photography business would help ensure I have a job no matter where we move.

  426. Amy on August 15, 2012 at 11:57 am

    This would be perfect to take my photography to the next level.

  427. Shannon S on August 15, 2012 at 11:57 am

    I would love to win this lens to improve my work.

  428. Flora on August 15, 2012 at 11:58 am

    I would love to try this lens out in my food photography. I am not too happy with any of the lenses I have right now and think this one would probably rock in my tiny apartment studio. 🙂

  429. Nichole Metzger on August 15, 2012 at 11:58 am

    I would like to win this lens to take better pictures of my new son.

  430. Will Prentice on August 15, 2012 at 11:58 am

    This lens would be a sweet addition to arsenal.

  431. Talley Arce on August 15, 2012 at 11:59 am

    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?

  432. Melissa on August 15, 2012 at 11:59 am

    I am always interested in ways to improve my photography. This lens sounds amazing!I hope I win!!

  433. Rebecca on August 15, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Congrats and great giveaway!

  434. Anne Marie Tennison on August 15, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    What a great opportunity to win a fabulous lens! I’ve been laid off from my job as a social worker and I’m trying to increase my photography skills so this would be a wonderful opportunity.

  435. Jamie Stefanko on August 15, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    I am just starting out, and would love to have a non-prime lens to add to my selection!

  436. Jaymi on August 15, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    awesome giveaway, fingers crossed!

  437. Angela Wilson on August 15, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    What a generous gift!

  438. Crystal Hall on August 15, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    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.

  439. Sarah on August 15, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    A free lens?!?!?! Yes please!! I’d love to win it because I need one and can’t afford it. =)

  440. Amanda Sutton on August 15, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Would love to win!

  441. Trevor Baird on August 15, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    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. Elizabeth Swan on August 15, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    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!

  443. Hye Kyong Kim on August 15, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    Wow~ Amazing giveaway! So excited~ I am in the market for a new lens and would absolutely love to try the new Tamron lens~

  444. Holly L on August 15, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    Because I need another lens I only have one!

  445. Monica Walston on August 15, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    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. Ellyn Reid on August 15, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    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 🙂

  447. Rich Gaskill on August 15, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Would like to add the lens to my list of equipment. Thanks for the contest.

  448. Denise on August 15, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    I would love this lens….I am a on big budget and am in the market for a lens….Also, my birhtday is 9/1 and I think this would be an really great present…..

  449. Sandy Lewis on August 15, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Gee – what a great lens this is! I could never afford to buy this, so thank you for the chance to win. I would use this lens to take even better photos of my family, my pets, my flowers, the trees and clouds, well – just everything!

  450. Shan on August 15, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I am just starting out, I would love to win this lens so I can improve my photography!! 🙂

  451. Carolyn A on August 15, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I enjoy shooting landscapes but my 18-55 just doesn’t get the crispness I’m looking for. I’d love to experiment with this lens.

  452. Kevin Bonny on August 15, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Have been saving for a 24-70 so it would be great to win it.

  453. Emily H. on August 15, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I would love to have a good wide angle lens. I live in Colorado, and the mountain views are spectacular, but I can never capture them!

  454. Anne on August 15, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Wahoo for a new lens!! Would be a perfect addition to my lonely 50mm

  455. Ashley B on August 15, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    Wow! I’ve been playing with photography for a few years, but I just started getting more serious about it. My lens collection is consisting of all of two lenses. This lens by Tamron would be amazing to add to it!! Thanks for the opportunity. <3

  456. Jennifer West on August 15, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    I never win anything like this, but I sure would like to! I am in deserate need of a good go-to every day lens and this would be great!

  457. Lindsey W. on August 15, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    Crossing my fingers I win! I have been wanting this lens forA while now. I just can’t talk my husband into it though! 🙂

  458. Jenna on August 15, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    I have been saving for this lens! Would love to have this as my go to lens!

  459. Autumn on August 15, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Awesome, would just love this! Thanks for the chance to win!

  460. Colleen Pardun on August 15, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    Oh, I would love to win this! Right now I only use prime lenses for my business but feel as though a zoom would challenge me as a photographer! I’m feelin lucky!

  461. Jessica Kovalcik on August 15, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Why do I want to win it? because Jodi says it’s awesome! Who wouldn’t want to win a new awesome lens? (especially a private school art teacher on a very limited budget) I’ve never tried a Tamron before and would love to try this one.

  462. Kimberly Loxtercamp on August 15, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    I have been eyeing this lens for a VERY long time!

  463. Dawn Shiree Merritt on August 15, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I’d love to win this lens because I have had my eye on it since it was first announced months ago! I don’t have a zoom and I’d love the added feature of the VC. Thanks for the chance!

  464. Cherie Yarnall on August 15, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I would love to win this lens to replace my kit lens!

  465. Gene on August 15, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    This is great! This lens and it’s VC will be awesome to use for video. Hope I win!

  466. Liz on August 15, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    I would love to win this lens!! It is a better lens than any I currently own and I don’t any money in the budget to buy at the moment! What a great giveaway!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  467. Nancy Hildreth Anderson on August 15, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    I would love to have a new lens for my camera. After I purchased my Nikon D90 other things have been in the way of buying another lens like the car breaking down and braces for my son. I have been in love with Tamron lenses since the “old days” of film.

  468. Pam on August 15, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    I would love to win this lens. As I’m sending my oldest child off to college next week, there sure isn’t any extra money in my budget for this lens (or any other)!!

  469. Betty Freedman on August 15, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    I would love to win this lens. I have another Tamaron lens that I am very happy with and would love to get this size lens.

  470. Joy Schwarz on August 15, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    I would love to win this lens as it’s really the only one left on my wishlist of must-owns – I haven’t been able to set any money aside as of late because we are just trying to make ends meet.

  471. Pam Bustamante on August 15, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Just want to Win!!

  472. Melissa Rawlings on August 15, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    I would love this lens to take better pictures, increase my experience, and improve my photography skills!

  473. Erica Burns on August 15, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    As a new photographer just starting out this would really help me grow my business!

  474. JAmie Wheeler on August 15, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Would so love to win, someone stole all my lenses and gear and starting over has been hard. Upgraded my camera but only have 2 lenses and not the best either! Would do love to win, thank you for the opportunity!

  475. Audra Christianson on August 15, 2012 at 12:32 pm

  479. Brian Godfrey on August 15, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    I’d love to win one of these. I mostly use primes and would like to have a good zoom in my arsenal.

  480. Kelly on August 15, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win this amazing lens! I hardly ever use a tripod so this would be perfect for me.

  481. Carrie on August 15, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    My friend has the Nikon that I borrow all the time and I would love to win one so I can quit borrowing hers.

  482. Christin on August 15, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I would LOVE to have this lens for both personal photography and professional…especially for chasing around subjects that are shorter than 3 feet tall. But, winning one right now is the only way it will fit in the budget! :). Thank you for the chance!!!

  486. Holly Young on August 15, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    I purchased my first DSLR camera two years ago and am addicted! I’m no pro by any means but love taking fun and creative pictures of many different things. I’m often asked to take pictures of rescue dogs looking for their forever homes and have helped a few find their forever homes just by capturing a cute image of them. This lens would allow me to expand and do more with the pictures I take and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to add it to my very small, beginner collection 🙂

  496. Heidi on August 15, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    I would love to win the Tamron 24-70 mm lens because I’ve been using a 70-200mm and need to broaden my horizons with a wider angle lens. This one sounds amazing!

  497. Cindy Drenth on August 15, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    Would love another Tramron lens for my Canon. The first lens I bought for my 30D was a tamron.

  498. Anita on August 15, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    I would love to win one of these amazing lenses because it is really one of my dream lenses….ok, I have a few…but this is really at the top of my list 🙂

  503. Christina on August 15, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I just got a Nikon D7000 and would love to win this lens!

  504. Juanita on August 15, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I would love to win this lens. I don’t have this range and have thus far only used Nikon lenses, but they are so much more expensive that I’d love to find out Tamron was worth investing in also 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity!

  505. Monica Oppold on August 15, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    I would love another Tamron! I have the 18-270, the 17-50, and the 180 macro and love them so much! The 24-70 would be a great addition to the family 🙂

  506. Abigail H on August 15, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    I would love to win the lens because I could not afford to buy such a nice lens on my own. It would be quite exciting to see what I could do with this quality lens.

  507. Erin on August 15, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    I would love to win this because my husband is planning on buying me brand new DLSR camera sometime this year (My first ever professional camera). I have a lot to learn before & after I get them, and this will make an awesome addition to have. Maybe my favorite go to kind of lenses.

  510. Rene Sheppard on August 15, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    I’ve been tracking the price of lenses in this focal range for about 6 months. It would be a perfect addition to my camera bag and exactly what I need to broaden my portrait photography horizons!

  511. JB on August 15, 2012 at 1:04 pm

  517. Kim P on August 15, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    I would love this lens for the flexibility and VC. I have two other Tamron lenses and they have performed very well for me. 🙂

  518. Susan Blow on August 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks for the lens review and the chance to win one!

  519. Jim Nichols on August 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    would love to win this lens sounds fantastic

  521. Alesa on August 15, 2012 at 1:17 pm

  522. Nancy on August 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    I’d love to win this lens because It looks amazing!

  524. Breanne T. on August 15, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    I would love to win this lens because #1 it’s one of my dream lenses that I can’t afford at this time. I would love to photograph my children with this…to be able to zoom and have a low aperature it’s a win-win 😉

  525. Judy on August 15, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    I have heard amazing things about this lens and would love a shorter focal length than my 50mm f/1.8 for getting pics of my girls inside the house!

  526. Theresa J on August 15, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    I would never be able to afford this lens but drool over the opportunity to win one

  527. Bonnie Thompson on August 15, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Looking for a new lens to expand my options, this would be perfect

  528. Mike on August 15, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    Would love a new lens, thanks for the chance to win!

  529. doj johnson on August 15, 2012 at 1:25 pm

  530. Deanna on August 15, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    I have been eyeing this very lens, but it’s just not in the budget. I could really use a faster zoom lens!

  531. Ann on August 15, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    I would love to win! Sign me up!

  532. Tim on August 15, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Since upgrading my lenses isn’t possible right now, winning one is the next best thing! 😉

  533. Saundra on August 15, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    There are so many things to try and do with a new lens. Since I haven’t had a lens like that before, it would all be new to me!

  534. Laurie on August 15, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    I would love to win. Always learning new things. 🙂

  535. Dawn on August 15, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    I would love to have a good walkaround lens that would help me hone my photography skills.

  536. Olivia on August 15, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    I would love to win the Tamron lens for Canon. I lost several of my lenses in a house fire last summer. I have replaced the camera and one of the lenses. One of my lenses made it, but it’s hanging on with a wing and prayer.

  537. Emily on August 15, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    I would love to win this lens for my mom! I have been helping her with her photo skills and she will finally be upgrading to a dSLR this year. She is the sponsor of the yearbook at her school and I feel that if she had a great lens like this one for her camera she would feel more confident in teaching her students how to create memorable images for their book. My mom and I both really like reading the tips in your blog and it would really mean a lot to me to win this lens for her.

  538. Erin on August 15, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Wow – I can’t afford any new lenses right now, but this would be amazing. I don’t have anything like it for my Canon!

  539. Laurie on August 15, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Bummer…I can’t enter any more because I’m not on facebook. 🙁 Only takes one to win. 🙂

  543. Chelsea Rustad on August 15, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    I would love to win this!!! It is next on my “buy” list. Yay!! 🙂

  544. Kate on August 15, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    I love love LOVE the 24-70!! Winning one would be absolutely awesome and would fit nicely in my equipment bag. This is the lens I normaly rent all the time, so owning one would be absolutely awesome!

  545. Bruce on August 15, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    I have been thinking about getting a fast wide angle lens. I’d love to have this lens as it would really help to improve the quality of landscape shots.

  546. Susie Stout on August 15, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    I have been excited to explore new lenses besides my 50mm or kit lens, so I would love, love, love if I won this lens!!! Fingers crossed!

  550. Kevin on August 15, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    I want to win it b/c I can’t afford to buy one : ) and I am just getting started at this photography thing and this certainly would increase my ability to take more amazing photos! Love the blog by the way!

  551. Jessica on August 15, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    This is the lens I would buy if I had $1200 laying around! Unfortunately, that’s NEVER going to happen! Oh, I would love to own this!

  552. Jenn B on August 15, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    I have been wanting a lens like this for a while. I love the flexibility if offers during family portraits.

  553. Alexandros Tolios - Zisos on August 15, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    I’d love to win this!I definitely need a lens kit upgrade and the amazing 24-70 by Tamron seems like a great option for a quality zoom lens!

  558. Cheryl on August 15, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Great photo! and great lens.

  559. Ryan on August 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    I want to win because I have heard great things about Tamron lenses but have yet to try one. I currently am shooting with my kit 135 lens and a fixed 50mm lens. I love my 50mm but think I could take some fantastic shots indoors using this contest lens! I like to shoot Martial Arts pics and would love to be able to share my talent to the world through this lens!

  560. Traci on August 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    This lens is on my wish list of lenses so, obviously, I would love to win this contest! I’m already imagining the tons of eye rolling that I’ll get from my sons if I win this lens….they already hate posing for me and it will get so.much.worse if I win!

  561. Holly Hyde on August 15, 2012 at 1:44 pm

  564. melissa rhyne on August 15, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    I’m just starting out my photography business and only have one lens to work with right now. I’m dying to get more lenses as well as other equipment but just can’t afford it until I start getting more customers:) I never win anything but doesn’t hurt to try! Thank you!

  565. Fuzzy on August 15, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    I would like to win this lens because it would be a great upgrade to my equipment which I currently don’t have the budget to upgrade myself.

  566. jackson Bell on August 15, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Super Great lens giveaway!

  567. WhenToyzAttack on August 15, 2012 at 1:47 pm

  569. Debbie on August 15, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Who wouldn’t want to win this lens!! I have been wanting to get a new lens in this focal range for some time now, so I thought I’d give it a shot!!

  570. JB on August 15, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Such an awesome lens! I have loved other Tamron lenses, especially the 18-50 f2.8, this would be an awesome addition for portrait work 🙂

  571. kathy bannerman on August 15, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    i would love to win this lens–have been looking at lenses, but cannot afford one right now. This would really help my photography.

  572. debra r on August 15, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    I would love this lens because I need something a little wider but with range. I love my primes but would love to not have to keep switching lenses. Plus I have totally been eyeing a 24-70mm for a while…

  573. julie on August 15, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    I have been drooling over this lens- pick me!

  574. ted.archibald on August 15, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    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

  575. Mandy Meaux on August 15, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    I’d love to win this lens because I can use it for wide angle or portraits, eliminating the need for multiple other lenses.

  576. Sarah on August 15, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    This has been the lens I’ve been stalking! It would be perfect for my portrait business!!!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed on this one!!

  577. Geri Bragg on August 15, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    My lens collection consists of only 2 lenses. I only wish I had the means to expand as I am trying very hard to achieve higher standards for myself. I would love to win !!! 🙂

  578. Emily H. on August 15, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    This looks like a fabulous lens- gotta love fast and accurate lenses! I would love to win it!

  579. katrina garcia on August 15, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    I would love to have a new lens to play with! garcia.katrinai@gmail.com

  580. Heidi on August 15, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    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.

  581. Sarah on August 15, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    I would love to win this lense as it would provide me with another great opportunity to continue learning. I only pick up photography as a full time interest since receiving my first DSLR for Christmas ’11 and would love to continue this amazing experience with more lenses!

  582. Christy Holliday on August 15, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    I’d love to win this lens – it looks amazing! My only lens outside of a kit lens is my 50mm, which I love, but this would help me take my photos to the next level.

  583. Kama on August 15, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    I have the Tamron 17 – 55 mm and LOVE it, but wish it had a wider angle sometimes. Being able to go up to 70mm would rock! 8)

  584. Tracy on August 15, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    because…i was just about to preorder the Canon one and this one looks AMAZING!

  585. Jessica Graham on August 15, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    OMG!!! Look at that glass! I would love to upgrade to a parent of a fab zoom lens!

  586. Isabel on August 15, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    Hi! I would love to have this lens. I’m taking a photography course in my community and being unemployed makes it really hard to afford any lens in the 2.8 range that the professor says is preferred in the class. This would be a blessing! Thanks for this contest! 🙂

  587. Roberta on August 15, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    I would love to win this lens. I only have the kit zoom right now and am not able to use it in low light situations as I would like to. I was able to rent a 2.8 zoom lens and loved it! Thanks for the chance!

  588. Heather on August 15, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    I would LOVE LOVE this lens. It would make my low light wedding and concert photography so much easier and better! And I love Tamron!!

  589. ika on August 15, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    It’s definitely the missing link in my gear, so I hope to increase odds in my favour.

  590. Lee Lee Belle on August 15, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Cripsness, clarity, sharp images thrill me, especially if they can be achieved from a distance without raising awareness … here’s hoping!

  591. Angie B. on August 15, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    I would love to win this lens because I have it on my “dream” list and it would help me grow in my photography.

  592. Victoria Greer on August 15, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    I would love to win this lens because it seems to cover such a great range. I could use it for travel or portrait photography! I think it would be a fabulous addition to my kit lens!!

  593. nicole on August 15, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    would love to add this to my camera and expand my photography!

  594. Aino Shperber on August 15, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    Wow that looks like an amazing prize! I can’t seem to find what are the requirements to join in…..?

  595. Amanda Creamer on August 15, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    Would love to win this lens…don’t have a lens in this range so it would be a great addition to what I do have!

  596. Jon Ellegood on August 15, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    I would love to win this because I’m just starting to take my photography seriously and only have one stock lens that came with our camera. As a father and youth worker I always have lots of opportunities to take interesting pictures. Having a lens like this would DEFINITELY help those pictures speak a little louder.

  597. Jody Carbone on August 15, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    Sorry for two messages, browser indicated the first didn’t go through.

  598. Stephanie Richards on August 15, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    This would be a great lens to have! Been wanting one but it has not been in our budget

  599. Erin Crista on August 15, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    I would love to own this awesome piece of glass. Also, I feel it will help me document my family!!

  600. Diane McD on August 15, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    This is THE lens I started saving up for until I realized how much pre-school is going to cost and closing costs on a new house and oh…life! 🙂

  601. Kristina on August 15, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    I would love to win because 24-70 is a great range, and you can never have enough primary and backup lenses!

  602. Amber Speck on August 15, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    I really hope I win! My hubby isn’t too keen on ordering me more lenses right now. 🙂 Thanks for the chance!

  603. Jess Zuniga on August 15, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    I would love to win a new lens!!!!!

  604. Jesse on August 15, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Awesome!

  605. Sara Rainsdon on August 15, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    I would LOVE to win this lens! I feel like it would really help me take my portraits to the next level.

  606. Kristin on August 15, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    I would LOVE this lens – 1. because I am a college student and can’t afford to buy a lens that I can work with better (currently have a 50mm f1.8). 2. I LOVE photography and just need the right equipment to get the visions that I have. And finally 3. It would push my creativity so much farther
