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.

    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.

  2. Leah on February 21, 2011 at 9:16 am

    1-It would be great to have just one lens on the camera & ready to go, instead of missing shots because I have to change lenses!2-It varies. 3-Yep, I like on Facebook!

  3. Brant on February 21, 2011 at 9:24 am

    1. I would like this lens because I would like to have just one lens to take with when I go on the motorcycle, bicycle, vacations, etc….2. My favorite length right now has been 503. I have “like” the FB for some time.

    -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

    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 353. liking you now (again)

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.

  33. Gina Elliott Proulx on February 21, 2011 at 9:48 am

    1. This lens would provide a great deal of versatility in my shooting, and allow me to travel with less overall glass when I’m concert shooting.. Additionally, I need this lens, because my current wide, is broken.. Sigh. 2. For normal shooting, I prefer a focal length of 50mm.. That’s not always possible, though. 3. I’ve ‘liked’ you guys on FB for a while, now..

  34. Shari Meyer on February 21, 2011 at 9:48 am

    I NEED this lens because I am new to photography…I am finding it necessary to upgrade my camera and am trying to decide between a Canon and Nikon (currently have a Sony). Because I’m getting a new camera, I don’t have a single lens for either system. This lens would be PERFECT because of it’s versatality! I have a few weddings coming up and this would be great!My favorite focal length is 50mm.I have been a fan of MCP Actions for awhile.

  35. John Mark on February 21, 2011 at 9:48 am

    1. uh…who wouldn’t want such a versatile lens!?! I don’t have anything longer than 105mm…to have everything in one lens would be awesome!2. I love my nifty-fifty, but I really love 18mm.3. have “liked” you on FB since the facebook action giveaway a few weeks ago

  36. Jamie Yacksyzn on February 21, 2011 at 9:49 am

    1. I would love to win this lens. After purchasing the 5DII and the 24-105 f/4L IS USM, my budget is at 0! I would love the huge focal range that this lens offers–amazing!! It would be beneficial for when I am photographing children who never stay in one place! No need to swap lenses for when they run off 🙂 2. I love shooting close up images, but my favorite at the moment is 50mm3. I have “liked” your page for a long time! I not only like it, I love it!

  41. Helen Savage on February 21, 2011 at 9:49 am

    1. I would love this lens because I only have a 35mm lens at the moment, which I do love, but I really miss something longer and a zoom for when I am out and about with my own kids. 2. I don’t really have a favourite focal length, I think it depends on the situation and what you are trying to achieve as to what length you choose. Which is why a nice zoom would be so great!3. I have ‘liked’ MCP Actions on FB for a while now.

  43. KLS Photography on February 21, 2011 at 9:49 am

    1.Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?It’s an extremely versitile zoom lens. I also don’t own anything in the telephoto range, so being able to go beyond 135 would open things up for me in some areas.2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot? Either 50 or 85. It varies so much from shot to shot, but those are the prime lenses I use the most. With zoom, I don’t always pay attention, just turn until it looks right.3.Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior.I like MCP actions, that’s how I heard about the contest!

  47. Suzanne Barber on February 21, 2011 at 9:50 am

    1. I need this lens because right now I have nothing below 50mm…and I have really been wanting to try the 35mm. Plus, the VC and closer macro focusing would be a big improvement over my “starter” 70-300 zoom.2. My favorite right now is the 50mm.3. I love MCP and like you on fb.

  48. Paul on February 21, 2011 at 9:50 am

    1. Not only would this be good for a single all in one to take on trips with the family, but it has the extra zoom I need for taking bird and other wildlife shots.2. I have a couple favorites, but one I go to more is my 85mm.3. Have been a fan for some time.

    I Need this lens badly.. would love to have the flexablity of a zoom with a wide range for sudden opportunities that come up without having to stumble for changing lenses so I can get nature and animal shots while shooting landscapes on my vacation to the north shore of Superior this summer. My favorite focal length might be hard to determine, I use my 60 mm macro or 18-85 mm most of the timeI have liked the mcp actions page on facebook

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography? I’ve had my Canon XT since they were brand new on the market to replace my film Canon rebel. I’ve also had the same kit lens (18-55mm) since then. I started a 365 (on day 52) and I’ve fully extended the kit lens (only one I have.) I want to take candid portraits of my kids and not have to worry about having the right lens and missing the moment to change it. I want to take more landscape photos and be able to zoom past the power lines in the way. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? It really depends on the subject. Most of my shots are taken at around 50mm as it gives me the best chance to capture the natural beauty around me as my eye sees it.Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior). —I have “liked” the page already.

    ~I would love to win this lens b/c I think it would prevent me from having to switch lenses so much during events like weddings..

  69. Shari Meyer on February 21, 2011 at 9:54 am

    1. I NEED this lens because I am a new photographer on the lookout for a necessary camera upgrade. I currently shoot Sony and am wanting to go with a Nikon or Canon. Because of that I do not have any lenses for either system. This lens is versatile and would get me through the few weddings I have coming up! Just what I need!2. My favorite focal length is 50mm.3. I have “liked” MCP Actions for awhile.

  70. April on February 21, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Need is a strong word. Especially since Pentax wasn’t listed as a body it might work on, so I’d use is as a trade with my brother for his cool lens that he had for is old pentax.I have a ok lens right now, but would always like faster glass. It’s hard to say what focal length I usually work with, cause I do a lot of switching up between closups and far-offs. I generally like to “fill the frame” wherever that ends up.I do “like” you on facebook. and follow on an RSS feed. (maybe overkill, but would hate to miss anything)–cheers.

  71. Andrea on February 21, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?I need this lens for wedding photography. It would make it a world of difference being able to get close ups of the bride/groom in the ceremony (specially in churches where you aren’t always allowed to get up close) or of guestsWhat is your favorite focal length to shoot?I generally shoot with a 50mm3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook oh I dont just like you I LOVE you 😉 and its how i found out about this contest!

    I need this lens so bad, because I do not own a zoom lens. They are so fun. My fav focal length is probably about 50mm. I already like MCP Actions on FB:) Shared this link.

  79. Selena Bluntzer on February 21, 2011 at 9:55 am

    1) I have the 18-55 and 75-300, and this would be a great replacement for both of them! 2) I usually like to shoot around 50mm-75mm, but sometimes, with running subjects (toddlers), I need to use 200mm.3) I’m already a fan!

  80. Elli on February 21, 2011 at 9:56 am

    1. I would love to have a lens like this because I wouldn’t have to change lenses so often!2. I don’t have a favorite focal length, but I often have my 28-135 set at 135 to capture details.3. I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook – that’s how I found out about this!

  81. Rina Winn on February 21, 2011 at 9:56 am

    Q1. Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?It would be the perfect all in one lens to have with me while I was out with my sons taking pictures of them on their dirt bikes do jumps. I can caught wide angel of the whole jump and up close of their faces. Or if I have to stand far away I can zoom inQ2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? It veries on what I’m shooting.

  83. Lakeith Collins on February 21, 2011 at 9:56 am

    1.Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?- Such a large focal range, it would lighten my camera bag significantly. I’ve wanted to try a 3rd party brand lens for quite some time and have been shy. I’ve heard good things about tamron lenses as well.2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot?- My favorite focal length right now is 50mm. I find myself often wishing I had a quality zoom lens instead of being forced to move so much or miss shots due to distance.3.Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)- Definitely Liked.

  84. Julie on February 21, 2011 at 9:56 am

  85. Lisa on February 21, 2011 at 9:56 am

    I would love this lens because it would be great when I shoot weddings. It is ver versatile and I could switch focal lens quickly with one lens instead of having two cameras with 2 different focal length, I could do a wide angle shot of the church and a nice close up of the bride and groom without having to change lenses.My favorite length is 50I “like” you on FB!Thanks!

  86. RA on February 21, 2011 at 9:57 am

    I need this lens because I am a photography student and this will help me be ready for any event or situation. My favorite focal length would be 200. I also like MCP on facebook. Thanks!

  93. Gini on February 21, 2011 at 9:58 am

    1. I would really like this lens because for me, this is the most versatile, take along in the car, lens one could want. I owned a Quantaray similar to this one – and I apparently over-used it to the point that it broke. I’ve sinced replaced it with a Canon 24-200 which just doesn’t cut it. My kids swim competitively and I need a go-to lens to shoot close and far quickly!!2. My most constant length is about 50.3. ALREADY “like” you on FB. Thanks for the consideration!! Hope I win!

  100. Sherry on February 21, 2011 at 9:59 am

    I am just beginning a venture into photography! I have three active small children and so the budget is SUPER short for great lens like this Tameron model! 1) Our first born is a boy and I can already SEE the great baseball and football pictures! OR the fantastic motions shots of our girls twirling about during dance! I love that it has both a wide angel and a macro focus, it is like having too great lens in one! And the fact that it is light means it won’t weight me down while I am carrying snacks for the three year old, dolls for the five year old, and random animals or bugs for my seven year old son! 2) The best lens I have right now, the one I can always count on, is my Nikkor 50mm f1.8! I LOVE THAT LENS!!3) I am a new “liker” to the MCP action page, but I just used it to download my Fusion action for FREE! Thank you so much! I had never used an action before and your web tutorials made it super easy!!!!!!!!!! This is the first image I used it on, below 🙂

  102. Abigail Carpenter on February 21, 2011 at 9:59 am

    1. The versatility would be a great convenience. Being able to take one lens with me for such a wide range of distances sounds like a great product. Also, the fact that it has vibration compensation is a MUST. I seriously have issues with my current lens. 2. My favorite is around 50mm 3. Yes, I have ‘liked’ MCP on Facebook

  103. Andrea Thomas on February 21, 2011 at 9:59 am

    1. I need this lens because my walk-around lens is a 28-135mm on a Canon 1.6 crop camera, so I’m missing out on both the wide and zoom ends of the spectrum.2. 50mm (so actually 80mm with the crop factor)3. I already “like” MCP Actions on Facebook

  104. Courtney on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    1. I need this lens because it would save me from carrying multiple lenses and it would prevent the missed shots while switching lenses.2. My favorite focal length is 503. I already “like” MCP Actions on FB

  105. Kim on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    1. I would love to have a “walk-around” lens for vacations and stuff like that. Also, I only have a 50 prime so I’d love to be able to zoom to 200mm!2. My favorite length is 50, because that’s all I own at the moment.3. I am a Facebook fan!

  106. Heather steffen on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography? I have only the stock lenses that came with my Nikon. I would love to have this new lens as it would be perfect! I love to shoot weddings but it is so hard to keep flipping lenses to get that perfect shot! This lens would be awesome!I love to shoot at all different focal lengths but I think that 50 seems to be my most used. I have had the “like” MCP Actions on Facebook for a few weeks now. I check the page often.

  107. Elaine Carter on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    What a wonderful giveaway. I would love this lens. I just sold my tamoron zoom without VC in hopes to get one with VC. It would help me in so many ways. My kids are starting tball and the zoom will come in handy. Not to mention when I backup shoot at weddings. Right now 50mm is probably my favorite. Been a fan on fb for a long time.

  108. Elli on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    I have now added MCP Actions blog to my reader – how had I missed that before? I’ve been reading this blog for a long time!

  109. Heidi Lawson on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    1. I don’t own a single zoom lens. Only primes. With my full-frame camera I would be going for the 28-300 lens, and the thought of that type of range is far too exciting. This would be the perfect addition to my little lens family :).2. I primarily shoot at a focal length of 50mm on a full frame camera, which is equivalent to 35mm for most dSLR cameras.3. Yes, I am a fan :). I linked to this post direct from your fb page.

  110. mariann on February 21, 2011 at 10:00 am

    – who doesn’t NEED a new lens!? 😉 we can all use some awesome new clear glass, right?-i love shooting at 50. wide open!-and i LIKE (LOVE!) MCP on FB! thanks! <3

  111. Christine Hipple on February 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    1. I need this lens because it has such a nice range of focal lengths and it is so light. It would be awesome to be able to carry one lens that does so much instead of a whole bag of lenses. It is a lens that I could use for my studio work, and my outdoor photography. And I’ve been needing a zoom lens for awhile now!2. At the moment, my favorite focal length is 50mm.3. I have liked you for awhile now. 🙂

  112. Jodie on February 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    1. I currently have a f/2.8 70-200mm Tamron for my Nikon and love it. I do mainly equine/pet photography and would love to be able to have such a wide range to choose from with a 18-270mm lens. That extra 70mm would be great when I’m at horse shows and need to get just a bit closer. Or the 18mm would be great to take in the entire scene at a show.2. Whatever works best for the subject. 🙂 At horse shows, I’m normally shooting closer to 200mm unless the horse is a bit closer up and then I love the great sharpness of around 100mm.3. I not only “like” MCP actions on FB, I love it!

  113. Michelle Kersey on February 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    1. I need this lens as I only have the 18-55mmkit (which I never use)and a 50mm 1.4. I NEED a zoom lens, I miss out on many outdoor shots by not having a zoom lens. This lens will help me grow as a photographer by allowing me to move closer without physically moving closer! 2. 50mm, it’s very natural. 3. I “like” MCP for sure! 😀

  114. Lissa on February 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    1. I would like this lens because of the wide range it covers. I could do it all with one lens rather than having to switch lens’ all the time.2. Right now, I mainly use 50mm.3. I like MCP actions on Facebook 🙂

  115. Rhonda M on February 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    Q1: I need this lens because I have been trying to get on freelance with an event company. They stated as soon as I get a lens with a 200mm zoom, I am in. I haven’t had the money to buy one.Q2: 100mm is my favorite focal link to shoot at.Q3: I have liked MCP Actions for a long time on Facebook.

  116. Carol Anne on February 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    1. I *need* this lens because I have three boys that I am always chasing around. The 15x zoom in addition to the Piezo Drive and Vibration Compensation would throw down on some awesome boy images. 2. My fave focal length is 50mm, but I am dying to try wider. 3. Been “liking” MCP Actions for a while now. 🙂

  117. Christina on February 21, 2011 at 10:02 am

    1. I “NEED” this lens because my zoom lens broke last year, and I can’t replace it. I would love to have a zoom again.2. My favorite focal length is around 24mm, but I only have a 50mm right now.3. I have liked your page for a while now.

    1. I need this lens because I don’t have a long focal length lens. It will help with situations when I don’t want to be so close to my subject.2. My fav focal length right now is 50mm3. I like MCP on facebook!

  120. Carla Martin on February 21, 2011 at 10:02 am

    1. I need this lens for my sports photography to have an all length to be able to snap a quick crowd shot then back to action. 2. I currently use my Canon 70-200mm 2.8L IS or my 85mm 1.8 3. I have liked MCP Actions on Facebook for several months and even purchased a few actions

    1. I would like to have this lens because it is first and formost versatile. I bring all my 3 lenses where ever i go and to limit that number it would be soo nice. 2. I am torned between 50 and 85 but lean towards the 50 more.3. Been liking you for some time now. 🙂

  126. Tyler Upton on February 21, 2011 at 10:03 am

    1. I am a recent college graduate looking for jobs in the struggling economy. Needless to say it is very time consuming and discouraging. This lens would increase my versatility as a shooter and help me land clients to start a freelance business. Also, I am new to the Tamron brand, and this would be a fantastic introduction to try their well reviewed products. 2. My favorite focal length to shoot with at this moment is 50 mm 1.8. I find the bokeh and extreme depth of field give an intimate portrait no matter what you are taking a picture of. 3.I follow on twitter and Facebook.

  127. Jennine G-L on February 21, 2011 at 10:03 am

    1. My current zoom lens is not a nice as this one and since I dropped it in Peru the focus is a little difficult.2. 50mm3. I like you on facebook and I like the comment on facebook.

  130. Hope Lawrence on February 21, 2011 at 10:03 am

    I’m new to professional photography and I would love to have this lens to expand on my skills.

  131. Shawnna saldana on February 21, 2011 at 10:03 am

    1. I would LOVE to have this lens for the ease and convenience of carrying just 1 lens. This lens has so many of my favorite focal lengths all wrapped up in 1 little package. There would be less frequent lens changes keeping more dust out of my camera.2. My favorite focal length to shoot is 50mm.3. I have liked you on facebook for a while now.

  132. Katie W on February 21, 2011 at 10:04 am

    1. I would love to have this lens bc the 18×200 I am using right now is very heavy and very big!2.50mm3. I have “liked” you on fb for a while.

  133. Tia Thomas on February 21, 2011 at 10:04 am

    1. I NEED this lens because of shots like the one below, if I had this lens, it would have been a stellar shot – but with nothing more than a kit lens, I just couldn’t get the shot I wanted. I live in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, and opportunities for landscape and nature photography surround me and I need this lens to capture those shots! 2. I don’t really have a favorite focal length to shoot right now, since all I have is my kit lens and I am just getting started. 3. I am already a HUGE fan of MCP on facebook!

  134. Marilyn C. on February 21, 2011 at 10:04 am

    #1.) I need this Lens because I have found something I am so passionate about (photography),but do not have the means to take it to the next level just yet. I am recent college grad that has not had any luck in the job search due to a sub-par economy. Since I can not acquire a job or enough money for a fancy lens, I have just been practicing with my standard 18-55 mm lens that came with my Canon that I worked vigorously for. I know $700 for a camera may not seem like much to a professional, but it was a fortune for me and I am so proud to say that it is one of my most valuable belongings. I would love more than anything to have a more advanced lens to do what I love the most.#2.)My favorite length to use would be my 18-55mm since that is all I have practiced with.#3.) I have liked the fan page for a little while now and I love reading all about photography 🙂

  140. Meg P on February 21, 2011 at 10:04 am

    1- i NEED this lens because i’ve been shooting with my sony alpha for 3 years and still do not have a zoom lens! my lens arsenal is wimpy: my kit 18-55 and my prime (which i love, but is not super versatile). how’s a girl supposed to expand her photography skills without something like this? ;)2- my favorite focal length has been 50mm, since that’s what my prime lens is, and we all love the effect of a prime lens!3- of course of course of course i already “like” mcp actions on facebook!thanks for a great giveaway! 🙂

  141. Sarah Morciglio on February 21, 2011 at 10:05 am

I would like a really nice lens :)Right now I am really enjoying 35…I have a low light lens that has been taking amazing pics and its 35mm :)Confirming I am a fan of MCP on FB…have been for a long time

  143. Jaimi on February 21, 2011 at 10:05 am

    1. What a beautiful lens! I would use this lens to replace two current lenses – it would simplify my life not having to switch between lenses so much. 2. Most of my pictures are 50mm 3. I absolutely “like” MCP Actions on Facebook!I also “liked” this blog/contest on Facebook.

    1. I LOVE snapping nature and wildlife photos. This lens would keep me ready for most any shot that would come my way without having to waste precious minutes changing my lens and possibly missing a once in a lifetime shot! I’d be ready to snap an awesome close-up of that bald eagle that may surprise me by flying overhead as I’m taking a wide-angle shot down at the river. 2. I honestly don’t have a favorite focal length to shoot at. Another reason I would love this lens. I am constantly zooming in and out to fill the frame with my photo. I guess my fave would be somewhere in the “zoom” category, though.3. I “like” you on Facebook as well. Fun to read your articles through my newsfeed.

  155. Stephanie Medley on February 21, 2011 at 10:07 am

    1. This lens would bring new meaning to the all purpose lens for me whether I’m out shooting families, children or even an outdoor wedding that doesn’t require low light. This lens would make life so much easier.2. I like shooting at about 24mm unless i’m shooting wildlife then it’s the longest soon I have.3. I have “like’d” the page for quite a while now and am impressed with some of the actions i’ve used from there.Other options:I have been subscribed to the RSS Feed as well I always spread the word, have a couple of friends that have like’d your page after my nudging.

    1. I need this lens because I only hace the one basic lens that came with my camera. It will help out because I can learn how to shoot from other distances.2. I like shooting macros.3. I am a friend on fb that is how I found out about this contest!!

  159. Kahla on February 21, 2011 at 10:08 am

    1. I would love this lens because I do not currently have a lens that has that zoom range, therefore it would be very beneficial to have it. I do find myself in situations wishing I had a zoom lens to capture certain scenes or animals!2. My favorite length to shoot right now is 50mm.3. I like love MCP Actions on Facebook! 😉

  160. Paul Singh on February 21, 2011 at 10:09 am

    1) My daughter is at the age now where she runs around in the parks a lot. Being able to take those close ups when shes off playing would be fantastic. There’s only so much i can do with the 18-55mm. So this Telephoto would transform the quality of my shots of her in the outdoors.2) My fav length has to be around 50mm3) Been a FB liker for a long time! 🙂

    1. I am 65 years old – travel and landscape photographer – with this lens, I could leave at least two others at home….. lightening the load2. Probably in the range of 75 – 100….3. Have LIKED MCP for EVER!

  164. Rachel on February 21, 2011 at 10:10 am

    This is Great!1. I’m breaking into the wedding industry more and would love to have an all-in-one lens that can capture both wide angle and close ups without a lens change. 2. My favorite lengths has to be 18-24, I love the dimensions it creates and the angles it offers. 3. Totally a fan on Facebook.

    1. I “need” this lens because I spend a lot of time outside with my family, which includes my 2-year-old granddaughter and our two basset hounds. I always have my Nikon with me, but I miss shots because my zoom range is too narrow, and there’s not enough time to switch lenses!2. My fav length is around 35.3. I “liked” your fb page months ago – still enjoy it :)4. Your horizon is crooked in your first sample photo, the horizon line goes across the reflection, and not the actual water level – LOL!

  167. Jamie on February 21, 2011 at 10:10 am

    1. I do not have a long zoom lens. I would be a great option for portraits and for sports photography. Which I do both.2. I do not have a a favorite, however, I love my prime 50mm, so 50 at this point. 3. I like MCP actions on FB for a long time.

  171. Karie McRae on February 21, 2011 at 10:11 am

    1. Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography? I just purchased a Nikon d7000 and I am trying to acquire more lenses. I need this lens so that I can zoom in at my sons sporting events; basketball and football. I am also very interested in becoming a Sports photographer. 2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?My favorite focal length to shoot is 18-200 mm. because that is the only lens I have right now. 3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)I have already liked MCP Actions on Facebook.I love your site and learn a lot from it.

    Entry 1:1) I NEED this lens for upcoming weddings I have to shoot this summer! Working on a cropped sensor so really could use the wide angle length plus the ability to zoom way in for the shot from a distance. Perfect!2) Fave focal length right now is 50mm on a cropped sensor. 3) I have “liked” MCP on FB for a while now. 🙂

  174. GiGi on February 21, 2011 at 10:11 am

    1. I need this lens for spring soccer! I can only get so close from my stationary spot at midfield. 2. My fave length is 200mm right now as it is currently the longest I can go. Anything to get me into the action at the game.3. I have liked or been a ‘fan’ on FB for awhile!

  175. John on February 21, 2011 at 10:11 am

    Another great contest from MCP Actions. You guys rock!Why do I need this lens? I shoot mainly sports, from t-ball to adult activities and the flexibility that 18-270 mm provides is essential. Also the VC feature will come in very handy running up and down the sidelines getting set up for that perfect shot.My favorite focal length is probably right around 85mm, that’s where i am able to capture the best action and emotion.I’m a big fan on facebook and have shared the contest on my personal page, my photography page and on my blogspot at MNGPhotography.Thanks!

  180. Jenn Lewis on February 21, 2011 at 10:12 am

    1. I would love to have this lens so I could capture kids who are a little on the shy side. It would be great to have a zoom like this to photograph many things, seems like it would be the perfect “walkaround” lens. 2. I have a 50D, so while I love my 85mm lens and use it frequently, it’s a little too “close up” for shooting indoors. I probably would shoot most around 35-50mm. 3. I like MCP actions on fb!

  181. Gini on February 21, 2011 at 10:13 am

    1. I would really like this lens because I actually broke a Quantaray lens 18-270 and replaced it with a Canon 25-200. It is an awesome, take in the car, shoot quickly lens. My kids swim competitively and I need a lens I can shoot near and far quickly. No time to change out lenses.2. My average length is probably 50.3.

    1. I own one Tamron lens (28mm-75mm) and it is so Sweet! I would love to have the new 18mm-270mm to compete with the High End peers who shoot. I would pick this lens over a Canon (still have the 20D)in a heartbeat if I had the chance… 2. Love to shoot about 105mm.3. “Like” on FB MCP for some time.. “Love MCP” for some time too…

    1. This lens would be a great daily lens, because it covers so many focal lengths, which is a plus when trying to capture memories of my little ones.2. I think my favorie focal length to shoot is 200mm, I can stand away from kids and capture their expressions without them even knowing :)3. I do “like” MCP on facebook.

  200. Kim Geary on February 21, 2011 at 10:16 am

    1. This lens would be perfect to use when photographying weddings.2. I also enjoy shooting sporting events – and the parents love the close-up pictures of their childrens faces while participating.3. I read somewhere that a picture reflects the soul of the photographer. I like that.

  201. Angela B on February 21, 2011 at 10:16 am

    1. When I travel I can’t bring too many things, this would eliminate a couple of lenses and maybe even my large camera bag. 2. My favourite length is 50mm. 3. I’m already a fan on facebook.

  202. Robin Hill on February 21, 2011 at 10:17 am

    1. I am endeavoring to become more versatile in my photography. This lens would assist me greatly.2. I love the candid shot, so I’d say 100 is probably my favorite length right now.3. I am a fan on FB.

  203. Kate Fortune on February 21, 2011 at 10:17 am

    1. This seems just the lens that I could use, I like its lightness and versatility of use. Just this one lens would do everything I need it for.2. I don’t really have a favourite length but shoot a lot round about 503. I already “like” you on fb. Thanks for this opportunity

  204. Michelle on February 21, 2011 at 10:17 am

    1. I do not have a zoom lens and would love to have one for FREE since my budget does not include new photography gear for the next 6 months.2. My favorite focal length to shoot with right now is 50mm.3. I like MCP on FB.

  205. debra kiely on February 21, 2011 at 10:17 am

    I am a later in life photographer who started with a aSony 350. I have a unique home business that I’m trying to get started. So many can’t afford quality studio photos. I have a modest sitting fee that includes a CD of 50+ pictures that they have rights. That way, they can get copies made wherever they want or can afford, or just at least have great photos on CD. I’ve upgraded to a Canon to get better shots. I really need another lense..I have only one. I love to be artistic with some shots and enjoy the MCP actions.I also love to take landscape/nature pics to give as gifts. Love macro, 50mm. I have “like” on FB and use MCP actions.

  206. Judy Michurski on February 21, 2011 at 10:17 am

    1. I take a lot of photos for Helping Paws, a nonprofit organization that trains service dogs. I seem to always miss the photo I want because I am swapping out lenses. This lens would allow me to photograph everything with out changing lenses. Yeah! And that is why I “need” it.2. I shoot at a lot of focal lengths. Probably 50mm is the most common right now.3.I am your fan on FB and will be again.

My fav focal length is 50mm – don’t have a choice since that is all I can use right now :)3. I have had the “Like” on Facebook.

  213. Erin McCombie on February 21, 2011 at 10:18 am

    1. I currently shoot with a 70-200mm from the 1970’s that does not AF on my camera body… it’s tough to say the least. I would KILL for this lens! The range is incredible. I’m making the switch from Olympus (deciding between Canon and Nikon) and this would be some amazing glass to start off on the right foot.2. I love shooting at, and the compression of 100-200mm… and would literally cry tears of joy to add this lens to my only other “good” glass (50mm 1.4).3. I of course “like” MCP Actions on FB. Thanks for this giveaway!

  214. Vanna on February 21, 2011 at 10:18 am

    I have been wanting a new lens that I can stand in one place and get a great close up and a picture of everything in it as well, without having to keep switching my lenses. This would be the perfect lens!! I donno what focal length I like to use since I like to do both up close and zoomed out. I like MCP on FB!

  215. Jonathan on February 21, 2011 at 10:19 am

    1. The lens would enable me to get more shots, have greater focal range, and change my lenses less! I have two lenses, a 17-50mm and 50-150mm, so I have to switch them out to change focal ranges. It would be great to have one lens that covers the entire 18-270mm range, especially for a walk-around lens. I love photography!2. Difficult to determine an absolute favorite focal length, but it would probably be around 35mm.3. Yes, I like you on FB!

  216. Bobbi-Jo G. on February 21, 2011 at 10:19 am

    I NEED this lens! I wad just telling my husband how I need a lens that has both wide angle and telephoto capabilities for my outdoor family sessions. When working with small children, you don’t want to waste time switching lenses. I enjoy shooting at 85mm because of the gorgeous bokeh and the flattering portraits it produces. I definitely LOVE MCP on FB!

  217. Shantel Rich on February 21, 2011 at 10:19 am

    1. This would become my carry all lens, I am pretty sure it would be attached more than any of my other lenses because of its versatility.2. I do not have a “favorite” focal length – I shoot all over the place to be honest. This is why this lens would be a great asset to my photography! 🙂

  218. Kate B. on February 21, 2011 at 10:19 am

    I would love to win this lens because I am upgrading to a full frame camera and switching to Nikon so I need a lens in this range. I love shooting in the 50mm-85mm range. I have been a fan on FB for awhile!

  219. Chantelle on February 21, 2011 at 10:19 am

  220. INGRID on February 21, 2011 at 10:19 am

    AWESOME! I totally need this lens…my twin boys are playing their first season of HS baseball!!! I would love, Love, LOVE to get actions shots! One plays short stop and the other is a right fielder. Also, my daughter runs cross country and this lens would help get better shots of her. Thank you for the opportunity! My favorite focal length is 50mm but I’m sure that would change if I won this lens. AND, YES, I have “liked” MCP on Facebook!~ingrid

  221. Christa on February 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

    1. would love to have a versatile lens that would cut down on changing the ones i have. Having a wider range would definitely improve my photos.2. I don’ really have a “favorite”, it really depends on my mood and the subject. I tend to change my shooting “style” pretty often.3. already “like” on FB

  222. Kara Knepp on February 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

  223. cindy on February 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

    1. I would like this lens because I am in need of an “on the go” type lens. How great would it be to shoot a close up and a wide angle without changing the lens. 2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? Right now probably 50 mm as that is my favorite lens (because it’s the newest) 3. And I like you on facebook, I always have = ).

  230. Jennifer Paradis on February 21, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Q1. I need this lens because I am trying to branch out and become a pro photographer and this would help me more than anyone knows. Like I said I am still trying to get my name out there so I am not profiting enough to buy any other equipment right now. Q2. The only lens I have right now is an 18-55mm so you can see that I am very limited on photo taking when it comes to children and things like that.Q3. I “like” you on fb more and more everyday!

  238. Cynthia on February 21, 2011 at 10:23 am

    1. Why do I need this lens? LOL! I’m a mother of three kids: 8 , 5 and 5 months. While this lens might not get a ton of “professional” use by me, my kids don’t get a ton of “professional” pictures shot by me either. It’s so much easier to set up and photograph someone else’s. I would love this lens (and it’s next on my to buy list) b/c it would allow to have on at all times and wide and tele lens when I am with my kids. It’s too hard to drag three, or even two lenses with me with three kids. So I end up with less then stellar point and shoot pics or nothing at all. 2) I love to shoot above 85mm. I love the shallow depth of field above that range. I also love to stand back and photograph the “action” in life without be obtrusive. It always make the subject jump off the page.3) And of course I am a FB fan, been since I first found out about you guys a year and half ago!

    Saw this on the RSS Feed and wanted to put my name in the pot! I have been trying to decide whether to spend $600 on a mega zoom lens (this one!), or on a mega zoom point & shoot. There are times when I just want to use a camera without changing lenses and this lens would allow me to do that. My favorite focal lengths are 20-30mm or 200-300mm. I “Like” MCP Actions on Facebook!

  243. Holly Oldfield of Holly Oldfield Photography on February 21, 2011 at 10:24 am

    My replies to the following questions:1. 1.Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography? A- I really “need” this lens as a photographer just starting in my business to expand on the very basic starter equipment I have. And with a very shocking, traumatic life change that has recently happened to me, it’s extremely difficult for me to be able to afford the additional equipment that I “need” & want to be able to expand & improve my potential as a photographer just starting out in the business.2. 2.What is your favorite focal length to shoot? A- I haven’t quite figured out my favorite length to shoot, but 1 favorite that I absolutely love is macro. Also, I would love this Tamron lens so that I have the additional 70mm from my 55-200mm to be able to better shoot the moon.3. I’ve already “Liked” the MCP Actions page on Facebook quite some time ago & am definitely a fan of all the free actions, as well as the informative Blog posts 🙂

    1. Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?I “need” this lens because I am at the brink of launching my new photography business. I have a growing client basis, an established name, and a decent porfolio. This lens would really be helpful for my trip to Europe in June and a wedding I’m shooting in July. 2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?I’m sort of obsessed with my 35mm lens. 3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)CONFIRMED!

    1) I like the ability to just have one lens for a large variety of shots instead of switching out lenses.2) My fave focal length is probably 35mm3) Yes I am a “liker” of MCP Actions!!! 🙂

  250. Erin McCombie on February 21, 2011 at 10:25 am

    1. I currently shoot with a 70-200mm from the 1970’s that does not AF on my camera body. It’s challenging to say the least! I would kill for this lens – talk about versatile. I SO “need” it – what an incredible walkaround lens. Love wide angles for architecture and travel, and 100mm+ for the compression and lovely bokeh in portraits. 2. My “best” glass is a 50mm 1.4 and I do like that prime focal length, but my photography “life” would really change immensely with this Tamron.3. I of course “like” MCP Actions on FB. Thanks for this great giveaway. Someone will be a VERY lucky winner.

  253. Michelle H on February 21, 2011 at 10:26 am

    1. Oh how I would love to own this lens. I really feel that it could help me to have such a versatile lens. It could open my world up more.2. My favorite length right now is 50, but that is probably because my best lens right now is my 50 1.43. I have “liked” MCP on facebook for some time now. Probably at least 6 months.

    I NEED this lens! I’m looking to add another to my collection and this would be perfect! The longest focal length I have is 55mm. I’m starting a new business and the longer length will come in handy.Right now, my favorite focal length to shoot is 50mm. Because that’s my best lens right now :)I’ve been a fan of MCP for awhile but just recently became a fan on facebook.

  256. robbie hickman on February 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

    1…i really want to keep pushing myself with my photography. i shot alota weddings and would luuuuuuv to use this lense. AND i was just reading an article about this lense over the wkend & realized it moved up on my “wish list”.2. i use my 50mm quite abit. love the results.3. ya’ll are my BFF on f’book for a while. love the info!

  257. Heather on February 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

    I LOVE Tamron lenses. Mine resently broke so I would LOVE to be gifted with a new one. I have recommended Tamron to several friends. Thanks for doing this.

  258. Meghan on February 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

    1. I travel a lot and see a lot of spectacular places. This lens would be a great lightweight addition to my pack, as my current options are an 18-55mm kit lens and a 50mm prime lens. These are okay but not great options when it comes to trying to get details on sites that are not easily gotten to or are blocked off. 2. Between 100-200mm. 3. facebook.com/meghan.gallagher and I do like MCP actions on fbook!I’m also subscribed to your RSS feed and I have you linked on my photoblog: http://soigetontheroad.tumblr.com/

  259. Alicia on February 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

    1. This lens would make catching those “moments” a lot easier. I feel like I’m constantly having to swap my lenses out, especially since the zoom lens that came with my camera body isn’t all that great. Right now my only good lens is a 50 mm, and a nice solid zoom lens would make things a lot better!2. I love wide angle shots, so probably around 35 mm or lower. This lens would help me out!3. Already a FB fan!

  260. Ashley Smith on February 21, 2011 at 10:28 am

    1. I need this lens for my girls soccer games and for our trips we take. It would be nice to not run up and down the field to try to get close ups and not to have to switch lenses and miss great moments.2. My favorite length 503. I have “like” the FB for some time.

  261. Kenda Harper on February 21, 2011 at 10:29 am

    1. I would love to have this lens b/c of the shooting ranges you get with it. As a newbie just starting my business, I don’t have a bunch of lenses to choose from, and with this lens, it would solve my needs. I love shooting outdoors, and this would be great to get those tighter shots and those that are farther away, say like of children playing in a field, without having to chase them quit so much :)2. As of now, my favorite focal length is probably 50mm.3. I am already a fan on facebook and have been for some time now.Thanks for the chance to win an awesome lens!!!

    I only have prime lenses–I desperately need a zoom! I have a 30mm, 50mm, and 85mm, and I end up keeping the 30mm on my D300 pretty much all the time. It’s a great all-around lens…but sometimes I really wish for a wider photo!”Liked” you last week for those great free actions! I also was very interested to read your post about website mistakes–I’m planning to take your advice and rework mine a bit.thanks!

  267. Erin Braxton on February 21, 2011 at 10:31 am

    This lens would aid in my continuing effort to be a better photographer. By eliminating the need to swap out my ‘stock’ 18-55mm lens with a much larger/heavier lens for close-ups.Favorite focal length is 50mm, I love to get up-close and personal in my photos.I’ve liked MCP Actions for a while…

I am doing my best to be prepared for any situation, but have limited resources to sink into my love. This lens would fill all the gaps!! :)2. My favorite focal length changes daily.

  272. Sandra Brzezinski on February 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

    1. I would love this lens, as it would help me extremely with my wedding photography! I have an 18-55mm kit lens and a 55-200mm lens that I have to keep switching while taking photos to get the shot. This lens would ensure I get the shot every time!2. My favourite focal length would have to be the 50mm.3. I am already a fan of MCP on Facebook. Thanks for all the free stuff!

  273. Amy on February 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?I have truly been trying to save the $$ up for this lens for nearly a year now. It is such a versatile lens, especially when you are chasing after a toddler & can’t risk switching between 2 lenses to get the “right shot”. Not to mention it is the perfect travel lens

  274. Trish Manguso on February 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

    1.) I would like this lens for sporting events! I was just at a cheerleading competition this weekend and my Tamron 28-75 just did not cut it for the event, even getting as close as I could to the subjects.2.) My favorite length is 853.) I have been a FB fan of MCP for quite some time.

  277. Kristen Werden on February 21, 2011 at 10:34 am

    1) I’d love this lens because I only have one lens right now and I can’t afford another yet. This would be a SERIOUS boost to my equipment right now.2) I love the 50mm, f1.2. 3) I’ve liked MCP since I could ‘Become a Fan’. 🙂

No more swapping and I could just focus on capturing all the fun moments in my daughters childhood.2~I’m so very new to using my camera and I seem to shoot all over but I would have to say the majority of my pictures are taking at 50mm 2~I’m a “liker” on FB

I love get wide angle shots of landscape, shots of my son and husband and also occasionally I will see an animal such as a deer or even a pretty bird in a tree and the focal length of this lens will be very convenient!2- I would say that my favorite focal length is 50mm.3- I already “Like” MCP Actions on Facebook- that is how I saw this contest link. 🙂

I shoot weddings, engagements, childrens sessions, etc and this lens would provide a greater distance to be able to get the shot I need especially in a wedding situation without having to be so close to the subjects and allowing them to have a more intimate moment. 2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 50 mm 3. Yes, I like this site on Facebook. That is how I found out about the contest! 🙂

  295. Heather on February 21, 2011 at 10:41 am

    1. I need this lens because I don’t have any other than the 18-55 that came with it and I think it would be great for me to progress to doing wildlife shots!2. 503. I like on Facebook.

  296. Amy on February 21, 2011 at 10:41 am

    Oops! Speaking of toddlers, he hit the button before I was ready! :)1. I “need” this lens b/c it is just so versatile. It is the best multipurpose lens that exists. The majority of my time is spent chasing a toddler around & it is just too risky to switch between lenses to get that “perfect” shot. I’ve been saving for this lens for so long now…2. My favorite focal length lately has been between 70-90, but I also love the upper range so I can not be “in their face”3. I “like” the FB page, that is how I heard about this amazing giveaway!

  301. Jennifer Bullock on February 21, 2011 at 10:42 am

    1. I think I would particularly love this lens for weddings, especially during the ceremony, as my primary lenses during ceremonies are the 24-70 and the 135mm (I haven’t been able to pocket $$$$ for the 70-200 yet!). But the Tamron 18-270mm could really save me from constantly swapping between the two lenses, and I love it’s range!2. Between 35-50mm is my fave.3. I’ve always been a MCP fan! :)Addtionally, I’ve gladly added the RSS feed, added your link on my blog’s header under my bio, as well as speading the love — as posted here on my blog: http://jenniferbullockphotography.com/Blog/ :o)

    Would love to have this lens to allow for more versatility on shoots without having to change lenses…sometimes there just isn’t enough time to switch lenses before missing the shot.My 50mm rarely leaves my camera…especially in winter. With summer coming, kids will be running crazy so it would be great to have a longer lens to capture them even when they are far away!I “like” MCP on facebook.

  304. Holly Oldfield of Holly Oldfield Photography on February 21, 2011 at 10:43 am

    Hmmm….I don’t know what happened to my 1st comment 🙁 So, here it is again. I apologize in advance if it shows up, and I end up with it posted twice.To answer the 3 Questions;1. Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography? A- As a photographer just getting started out in business, I “need” this new Tamron lens to help me in expanding from my basic starting equipment to help me in being able to improve my photography by having more than just the starter basics. And being that I’ve just very recently gone through an extremely shocking/traumatic life event on top of my disability, it is now going to be very difficult financially for me to be able to expand on my equipment “needs” so that I’m able to offer better quality as a professional photographer.2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot? A- I haven’t quite figured out an exact focal length I like to shoot yet, but I will say that 1 of my absolute loves is macro photography. I would also love the additional 70mm this Tamron lens would give me from my 55-200mm lens so that I’m able to better shoot the moon.3. I’ve already been a “fan” of MCP Actions on Facebook for some time now; enjoying the free actions offered, as well as love the informative blog posts that I’m always reading 🙂

  305. Patricia Reyes on February 21, 2011 at 10:44 am

    1. I would love this lens, such versatility for all my shooting needs, from shooting my 3 year old at close range to taking pictures of animals at the zoo at the back of their enclosures, sounds like a wonderful all around lens!2. Hard to pick a favorite length, I love my 50 mm prime as well as my 35mm prime, so I guess I have 2 :)3. and I have liked you on facebook pretty recently, a couple of weeks ago.Thanks so much!

  306. judy on February 21, 2011 at 10:45 am

    1. I need this lens for the versatility and for the 270 part2. Probably my favorite focal length is 50mm because of shooting pics of my little grandsons3. I’ve ‘liked’ MCP every since I discovered it!

    1. I need this lens to outfit my new Nikon D7000 that I will be taking to Disney World in April! This would be the perfect one lens to use at the Disney World Park, with it’s versatile focal range!2. Depends, outdoors I prefer about a 50mm length… but indoors, 30mm works best for me.3. I am a FB fan of MCP Actions!

  311. Paula Baldwin on February 21, 2011 at 10:46 am

    1. I NEED this lense because I do not have a lens with a focal length greater than 125. When I shoot weddings I have to rent or borrow another lens. This will greatly help my business because I would be able to get some great close ups without being intrusive.2. My favorite length is 85mm. I find that this is perfect for portraits.3. I have liked MCP Actions on Facebook and in life for a while now.4. I shared the link to this contest on Facebook and Twitter5. I blogged about MCP Actions6. I mentioned MCP Actions on my website under “who we love”

I don’t feel I have a favorite focal length as it depends what I am shooting, but my most used focal length would be probably be 50mm.3. I have “liked” MCP on FB for a while now.4.

Plus my hubby is deploying soon and I’ll be taking LOTS of pictures for him of our almost 2 year old while he’s gone.2. My favorite focal length depends on what I’m shooting.

    1. I need this lens because I love that it’s an AIO zoom! When I’m out on location, it’d be great to be able to just have the one lens attached to my camera that covers such a wide zoom range. No need to tote around several lenses and have to worry about swapping them.2. My favorite focal length is about 70mm (crop sensor).3. I like (LOVE!) you on FB!

  326. monica grimes on February 21, 2011 at 10:51 am

    1. I “need” this lens because I would love to be able to shoot that type of range off of one lens.2. Right now I mostly shoot somewhere around 50mm but would really like to practice at 18mm.3. I already “like” MCP and have for awhile now!

    I really need this lens! The versatility of this lens would be so convenient while traveling and hiking. I’m constantly switching lenses or missing opportunities, and as an added bonus it would lighten my load!My favorite length right now is about 50I am your fan on facebook

  329. Laura Cole on February 21, 2011 at 10:51 am

    I really need this lens because right now I’m in the beginning stages of my photography career and only have a 50mm lens. It would give me more options for photographing my clients. I’d lovthe longer focal length so I don’t have to get so close to my clients with my camera! My favorite focal length right now is 50mm, but only because that’s all I know.I’m already a fan of MCP on facebook.

    1. I NEED this lens because I currently only have a 50 mm. I need something to capture my little clients and my own wiggly children without being so “in their face”. This lens will allow me to hang back and capture moments from afar. 2. My favorite focal length is 50mm. Starting to like 35 and 85 too!3. I already “like” you on Facebook!

  333. janene on February 21, 2011 at 10:53 am

    1. I “neeed” this lens because as a newly budding photographer, I’m going broke trying to get the equipment I need to build up my business. Having a versatile lens like this would put me one step closer to getting out of my job as a RN (which is killing my back and my sanity) and getting into my dream job as a photographer :)2. My favorite focal length to shoot is 50mm.3. I do, in fact, “LIKE” MCP actions on FB

  336. Maggie Vansickle on February 21, 2011 at 10:55 am

    1. I need this lense because I take quite a few wildlife photos but never seem to be close enough to cqapture the image the way I see it in my mind. I also LOVE taking candid shots of people and with a larger lense I can get the shot without being in the action.2. it really varies depending on the subject3. Definately LIKE on Facebook

    I need this lens because I only have the basic one that came with my camera and I can’t afford another one right now. I am trying to learn more about photography, but am pretty new to it. I really want a lens with a longer focal range because I think it would help me catch better candid shots of my daughter and her friends if I didn’t have to get right up in their faces. I guess my favorite focal length is about 18mm because that is what my lens does best right now.I am a facebook fan

  339. Jennifer Lynn Photography / Jennifer Bandy on February 21, 2011 at 10:56 am

    I absolutely love this lens. I am a fan of MCP Actions and use them all the time. I think this lens would further my career with my Wedding shots and seniors. Fav FL is 50mmSubscribed to blogAdded the banner at http://jenniferlynn-photo.com/blog

  341. Sheryl on February 21, 2011 at 10:57 am

    1. I “need” this lens so I don’t have to swap lenses at 55mm. An all in one carry all day lens would make me more productive.2. At the moment my favorite length is 35mm as I’m trying to get used to what a prime lens would be like.3. Definitely like the Facebook page.

  344. TheCoach'sWife on February 21, 2011 at 10:58 am

    1. this would be a great “walking around” lens to replace my 28-135mm (which I love, but would really appreciate extending that range to require even fewer lens-swaps), especially on my upcoming trip to Argentina next month!!!!!2. depends on the setting/subject….3. “liked” you on FB months ago. ;^)

    1. I need and want this lens because I don’t have any lenses that wide or that long. A mentor of mine, who is a certified, master photographer uses this lens and suggested it to me. She tells me it just about stays on her camera. I think it will probably stay on mine too, you just can’t beat that range. I have a Canon 70-200 but it is so huge to carry around.2. My favorite focal length is 85mm.3. I have “liked” MCP Actions on facebook for a long time!4. I have posted this link on my Facebook.5. I have subscribed to your RSS feed.6.

    1. I NEED this lens because I do not have a good long zoom lens OR a good wide angle, and this one will do both!! Like many others on here I’m trying to build my photography business in a tough economy and I feel like this lens will give me the versitility to capture those shots I need to take my business to the next level.2. I like to shoot at 50mm as that’s the lens I use most often. I also love shooting wide when I’ve had the opportunity to do so!3. I am a fan of MCP on FB! Have been for a while! 🙂

  355. Danielle Kloap on February 21, 2011 at 11:01 am

    I need this lens because of the weddings I shoot! This would be such a help because I wouldn’t need to change out a lens and possibly miss important shots.My favorite focal length varies, but it’s recently been 50. I’ve been a fan of MCP Actions on Facebook for quite a while!

I’ve started to do more weddings and it would save so much time there not having to change lenses. 2. My fav focal length is around 18 for outdoor landscapes, or 80-ish for bokeh.3.

  376. Jim Denham on February 21, 2011 at 11:08 am

    1: Right now, I have a limited reach with 55mm being my extended focal length. Having this lens would allow me to open up wide or compress images with one lens – it would likely stay on my camera 75% of the time.2. Currently shoot at either 18mm for landscapes or 50mm (prime) with all other shots.3. The Like button has been pushed!

  377. Brenda on February 21, 2011 at 11:08 am

    I am 50 yrs. old and would need this lens. Wanted to do photogrphy as a child but we could never afford something like that growing up. SO I finally got myself a nikon D90 and takening classes at the college, and yes Im following my dreams…I love wildlife photography, and this would be great with the grandkids around I could get the best of all world’s…lol 🙂 AS im learning portrait as well I think that it would also be a gret portrait, and close up photography (macro) as well. I guess my favorite focal length would have to be 300 for distance and I could shoot below that range when needed with this lens. I am a fan of you on f/b and love the textures and actions of your’s. I follow you on pioneer woman as well. Thanks for all you do. Pic. attatched. SCREECH OWL : EYES ON ME LOL!!!

  378. Charis Hanberry on February 21, 2011 at 11:08 am

    I received my first DSLR (the Canon T2i) for Christmas, but I only have the kit lense (18-55). I am looking for a 250mm lense to add to my bag. I actually enjoy 18-55 the most for versatility, but I ‘need’ a 250 to grow my landscape and architectural capabilities. I have subscribed to the RSS feed and have promoted the contest on my Facebook page. Pick me :).

    1. This lens would be great for shooting my kids at the park. I love my 50mm but chasing them around with that to get a photo while they’re playing is going to be very difficult!2. It all depends on what I’m shooting 50-85 is great for portraits, but 400 is much better for birds ;)3. I sure have! That’s how I got here 🙂

  382. Kathy O on February 21, 2011 at 11:10 am

    I need this lens because I only have one lens (18-55mm kit lens) right now. I am saving for a new one, but it’s not easy when life gets in the way. I love taking shots of my family with out them knowing, and my current lens just never seems to get close enough.

  383. Kristi on February 21, 2011 at 11:10 am

    I currently have a wonderful prime and a super wide lens in my arsenal, this lens would round things out well and open a new way of shooting for me. Plus, so great with the kids outdoors in the spring!I love, love, love shooting at 50mm. Of course that might be because I don’t have a zoom, lol.I am a MCP facebook fan!

  384. Dielha Ellis on February 21, 2011 at 11:10 am

    1. I really really need this lens because I just upgraded my camera and I cannot afford to get a zoom lens right now. And I truly need a zoom lens to keep in my arsenal of lenses to capture all the moments of a shoot! Plus I love Tamron lenses – I had several of them with my old Nikon that I sold when I made the switch to Canon. 2. I don’t know that I have a favorite focal length? It depends on what I’m shooting – but I picture myself using this particular lens for sports photography!! 3. Jodi know I’m all over her MCP Actions page on Facebook – not only do I like it – I love it!! And I liked the post about the giveaway!! Hope that fulfills my qualifications?? And as Donkey says – Pick Me Pick Me

    This lens would be a great asset not only for my personal interest and love of photography but also for the photography business I work with. Right now its just my friend who started the business and myself. Between the two of us we have only two quality lenses. The 18-270 Tamron lens would help us tremendously as we are going to start wedding season soon! I have a lot of “favorite” lenses but so far the 24-70mm, 2.8 f, has been my favorite. It has a nice range but also that low fstop so I can get some blur in the background. I have already been following MCP Actions on Facebook and love reading the articles & seeing edited pictures!

  391. Katie groves on February 21, 2011 at 11:13 am

    i would luv this lense because I wouldn’t have to keep swapping lenses when I’m shooting family portraiture meaning less chance of getting dust in itLuv my 50mm but need a wide apertureAm a great fan of MVP and have purchased actions and love following feeds

    My husband and I are going to Holland this summer to scatter his parents ashes. They both passed last year and they all were born there including my husband. They always wanted to go back. The lens would be a great lens for a trip like that. My favorite focal length is probably in the 85-100mm rangeYes, I am a fan on facebook

  393. Nate Aholt on February 21, 2011 at 11:13 am

    1. I would LOVE to have a lense that “does it all”!! I am getting really tired of haveing to change lenses to get the shot that I want. I think that having this lense would make me a better photographer all around!2.For me, my favorite focal length changes like the weather…..I shoot a very wide variety of things. Portraits, Landscapes, Trains, Wildlife…….3.Yes, I “like” MCP Actions on Facebook.

  402. Lois Fletcher on February 21, 2011 at 11:17 am

    1. I LOVE detail. My greatest wish is to have one lens that would allow me to truly capture the detail of the wonderful nature around me in rural N. Florida. Right now I am limited to a 55mm length. This lens would open a whole new telephoto world for me as nature photographer.2. Right now my favorite shooting length is “AS CLOSE AS I CAN GET”. I love the detail of macro shots that captures far more then the human eye is able to see.3. I love MCP Actions! I discovered it last week and have already downloaded several actions and can’t quit playing with them. What a difference!! I have sent your link to several photography friends to help spread the word and “Like” on FB. By the way THANKS for the quick response in answering my questions about the actions, your tutorials are great and easy to understand.Please check out my website at http://www.FletcherFotos.com if you get a chance. Thank you!

  403. Krista Campbell Photography on February 21, 2011 at 11:17 am

    I really need this Tamron 18-270 zoom because I only own 2 primes right now and this lens would be awesome for landscape photography and also for everyday shooting- I wouldn’t miss any shots of my daughter. I could really use the flexiblility of a zoom.

    i love to shoot around 50mm. i have an 28-70 mm tamron that i LOVE! and i have a 50mm 1.8 that i sort of love but its a manual focus which makes it harder to shoot with running kids. i had a 70-300 that my husband dropped and i cant replace bc he is out of work and his unemployment ran out so we have no extra spending ;( so this would be ammmmmmazing for me!!! totally amazing. i already love love love mcp actions on FB and i subscribed to the feed and i tweeted the contest!

  411. Tami Tripp on February 21, 2011 at 11:20 am

    I would love this lens for child and family photography. Capturing an intimate moment between parents in child from afar and then zooming would lead to some fantastic images! My only zoom is the 24-70 so I am lacking a longer zoom on both ends of the spectrum. I think I would love the 18 too! My favorite focal length right now is 50 mm. I love the bokeh I get with the 1.4 and love the low light ability.I like you on facebook, it’s how I found out about the contest.

  412. Shirla Armenta on February 21, 2011 at 11:20 am

    1. This would be an AWESOME lens to win because I don’t have a lens with such capabilities! It would be a huge asset!2. It varies, depending on what I am photographing, but right now I would have to say that the 50mm-60mm range is my fave :-)3. Of course I “like” you on FB! Love MCP actions!!!

  413. ~Shari Fox on February 21, 2011 at 11:20 am

    1 – I *need* this lens because of it’s versatility. Seriously, to have a lens that can capture almost anything with ONE lens – is perfect. Then I would not have to carry around an arsenal of lens. 2 – my favorite focal length – right now hands down – 50 3 – Already a Fan on Facebook! Booyah!

    1. I don’t have anything over 55mm, so clearly I NEED this lens.2. My best lens is my 50mm 1.4, which means I’m using the 50mm all the time.3. Clearly I love you on Facebook!

  416. Andrea on February 21, 2011 at 11:20 am

    I would love to have this as a lens for general use on hikes, with my kids, etc. I don’t really have a favorite focal length. I am a fan of MCP on facebook!

  418. Debb on February 21, 2011 at 11:22 am

    1. This lens is the perfect round-up lens for me to complete my ranges of focal legths. I love zooms for their versatility and this one would be perfect for my landscapes and for photos I’d like to take of my family at our cottage!2. I like 35-50 for my favourite focal lengths3. Yup, I LIKE on Facebook4. I subscribe to your RSS feed5. I posted a link to the contest on my Tumblr blog!:) 🙂

  419. Tracy Brewer on February 21, 2011 at 11:22 am

    1. I “need” this lens to keep on my camera and eliminate the need to change lenses often. Would be great for wedding shooting!2. My favorite focal length is about 50.3. I have “liked” you on Facebook for a while now!

  420. Leslie_A on February 21, 2011 at 11:22 am

    1. Would love to have this for baseball shots. The one I have right now just doesn’t cut it. It’s too slow and not sharp enough.2. I don’t have a favorite yet, but would love this to get “sneak” shots of the boy and the girl!3. I have “liked” on FB for a long time too!!

    1. Every time I go out to a place where I plan to get some nice shots, I have to carry two lenses , 18-55 and 70-300 , it is so inconvenient changing lenses in between especially if it’s a scene which is changing like those wonderful sunset moments. I would love to have the Tamron 18-270 which would be such a lovely addition and can replace all the lenses and bag I have to take , I can hook up just one lens and be done with it. 2. I like to shoot at 18-20mm for landscapes and 135mm for people and faces 3. I have already liked MCP actions on Face book.

  426. Erin on February 21, 2011 at 11:23 am

    1- I would love this lens because my telephoto lens is broken and I need to get a new one anyway.2- My favorite lens is the 18-553- I have been a fan on facebook for sometime.

  427. Kasey on February 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

    1.I need this lens to further my creativity. I’m limited to my two lenses now. I want to give back to my community and the people I love. I love catching their expressions in a photo when they don’t even know I’m taking it. 2. 85mm is my favorite to shoot with right now. I love the portrait shots!! 3. I like MCP on facebook. 4. I subscribe to your feed.

  428. LaSheika on February 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

  436. Jennifer Officer on February 21, 2011 at 11:27 am

    I am getting started in my photography business and as you know how expensive it is to Get everything you need to run a business correctly. This Lense I would love to have since I don’t have anything that Comes close to this quality. I like to shoot any focal length that gets the shot I have pictured in my mind. This Lense would help me to grow my business into what I dream it can be. Thank you so much for this opportunity MCP and TAMRONToni. Davenport photography

  447. Dawn Sanborn on February 21, 2011 at 11:31 am

    1. It would simplify my life and especially at shoots. Only one lens for 90% of my work is so much better! When shooting weddings it not only would save me time but hassle.2.usually around 200mm. When shooting horses the zoom is absolutely necessary.done – already liked you!

  448. Vickie Paola on February 21, 2011 at 11:31 am

    1.The lens would be very helpful to me and my business. I am a portrait photographer and I am always changing my lens out and feel like this takes away from my client. I would love to have this lens and be able to give that little bit of ectra time in making my clients feel extra special and beautiful.2. My favorite focal length would have to be between 35-70. I do like the longer shots as well.3. I have been a fan of your MCP facebook for a while now and love your actions.

  455. Tina on February 21, 2011 at 11:35 am

    1. This lens would be a huge blessing, I would be able to condense and use just one instead of switching constantly to catch the right shot. My subjects are quite young and always active, lol. 2. My fav focal length may be my Nikon 50mm.3. I ‘liked’ you on FB! 🙂

  462. Tammy Bilodeau on February 21, 2011 at 11:40 am

This would be a super addition to my small, but humble lens collection :)My favorite focal length….still yet to be determined. I like my 50mm the best at the moment, but think that 85-100 would suite me better. Thanks for the great giveaways!!

  467. Rachel on February 21, 2011 at 11:41 am

    1. I would like this lens b/c I only have a 50mm right now and would love an all-encompassing lens for a wedding I have coming up!2. My favorite is 50.3. I have “liked” you on FB for quite a while.

  468. Dana Schaeffer Stavana on February 21, 2011 at 11:42 am

    There are so many reasons I need this lens. I am in the beginning stages of starting a photo business so more lenses in my arsenal is always a good thing. And having a lens that will hit so many different focal lengths would be even more helpful. Plus I don’t have anything below my 35mm-80mm kit lens. I need a good wide angle.Lately it has been my 50mm. It is my first “nice” lens and I love itOf course I like you on FB!

  469. Din T on February 21, 2011 at 11:42 am

    I “need” this lens because I use my camera mostly for photos of my church’s youth group and zooming in without teens noticing would be so beneficial. 2. My favorite focal length to shoot is a 85mm – I do not own that lens but borrowed one and love it. 3. I have Liked MCP Actions on facebook.

  470. Lisa on February 21, 2011 at 11:43 am

    1 ~ I spend most of my time photographing kids. They move so fast and I love to capture the natural laughter and smiles as they move around, which means I need one versatile lens. This sounds like a perfect match!2 ~ Currently my fave is 30mm/f1.4. Capturing low light with a relatively wide angle allows me to do a lot, but am looking for more.3 ~ have liked you for a while and am looking forward to more!!!

    1. Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?–sometimes when I’m going on ‘adventures’ with my friends/models/clients/whomever, I don’t want to bring my entire camera bag. at the moment, I only have a 18-55, a nifty 50, and a 70-300 so I have to choose which range I want to have. this lens would give me a much wider range of focal lengths to work with.2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?–50mm (with my nifty fifty) or 55mm (with my kit lens)3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)–of course!

    My favorite focal length to shoot is right up close, filling the frame up with a sweet little boy face. This new lens would be great for me, because I only have a 50mm, and I would love to be able to back up, and shoot out of my comfort zone!

  481. Mary on February 21, 2011 at 11:48 am

    1. I would love to have the wide range for shooting that this lens offers. I could shoot pictures of family, sports and landscapes with just one lens!2. I usually use my 50mm prime lens. Lots of kid pictures! 3. I “like” you on Facebook.

  482. Adrienne on February 21, 2011 at 11:48 am

    1.I would really love to have this lens! I just upgraded to a full-frame Canon and in doing so, forfeited the use of my other zoom lens. I’m down to a 50 mm F/1.4 now which is great for portraits, but I miss having a lens that could go from wide to close-up in a second especially when I’m with my kids. And it would be great for family sessions when I need a wider angle, but then want to some close-up work, too.2.My favorite focal length? Probably 50 mm.3.I like MCP actions on FB.

  483. Stacy on February 21, 2011 at 11:48 am

    I NEED this lens because I only have two super crappy ones that don’t work properly, but can’t afford a new one.My favorite focal length to shoot at is probably 50mm.I definitely like MCP actions on facebook.

  484. maggie on February 21, 2011 at 11:49 am

  485. Josh on February 21, 2011 at 11:50 am

    I need this lens because my wife would think I’m the most awesome husband ever if I won it for her.My favorite focal length to shoot at is whatever length gets the best crop for what I’m shooting.And I liked MCP actions on facebook just because I love my wife that much.

  486. Malissa on February 21, 2011 at 11:50 am

    1. I have four beautiful children that I love taking pics of, 3 are boys and very much into sports- it would be great to be able zoom in and get good pics of them playing.2. I would have to say 50mm3. I have “liked” you on FB for quite some time now!

  487. Heather Jones on February 21, 2011 at 11:50 am

    1. I don’t have a lens capable of shooting up close and desperately want/need one!!!! I want to capture the fine details you see in macro photography and am unable to with the equipment I currently own.2. Of the 3 lenses I have, I prefer shooting with my 50mm 1.83. I am a fb fan!

  488. Carrie Martin on February 21, 2011 at 11:51 am

    1. I would love this lens so that I could have more time when shooting, and less time changing out lenses. Also the new size would be great!2. I really only have 2 lenses, and like them both. They both serve different purposes so I’m not sure I have a favorite yet! But I am working more on my portraits!3. I have “liked” you on fb for awhile and love the free actions you give us! Thanks!

  489. Suzanne on February 21, 2011 at 11:51 am

    1. I “need” this lense for a great, all-around lense for shooting our every day life.2. My favorite lense is my 50mm 1.4 so I would say that is my favorite focal length.3. I “like” MCP Actions on facebook.

  494. monkeyinabox on February 21, 2011 at 11:53 am

    -This would be a great walk around lens. My wife might give me less glares if I don’t bring the camera bag with multiple lenses “just in case”.-I love to go wide. While this lens isn’t as wide as my 10-20, it would give me the reach and still let me get pretty darn wide. -I *like* MCP actions on Facebook (under my real name)

  501. Joanna on February 21, 2011 at 11:57 am

    1. I could really use this lens as I shoot a lot of wedding photography and need a broad zoom range and something fast not to miss that special moment! Sometimes I am up close and personal but sometimes due to the rules of the church I have to be super far away so I could definitely use a much further zoom the 28-75mm I currently use for weddings. Also, the wider angle would help a ton for my indoor studio portraits as my studio is quite limited on space, only about a 11×11 room. 2. It really depends on what I am photographing but I seem to like to hang around 50-75mm, I seem to get the best, crisp, sharp results from that range.3. I already “like” MCP actions on facebook and follow them closely 🙂

  502. Lisa Gutierrez on February 21, 2011 at 11:59 am

    1&2. I think the lens would be a fabulous addition to my hobbyist set. I only have the kit and a prime lens and the smoothness of my 35mm means I keep it on my camera about 95% of the time. I think if I had a zoom lens that also had a nice slightly wider focal length, I would use it a lot! Especially with my kids who are always on the go. 3. I like MCP on Facebook (Lisa Gutierrez).

  503. Tommy Botello on February 21, 2011 at 11:59 am

    1. I need it because I recently sold my old gen Non-VC 18-250mm Tamron lens and this would be great to fill in it’s empty spot in my bag.2. My favorite focal length is typically 50mm.3. I already “like” MCP on Facebook.Also, I have signed up to follow the blog through RSS.

  504. Stephanie on February 21, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    1. I would love to have a lens with so much flexibility, and not have to change back and forth betweeen my “regular” lens and my telephoto lens all of the time. It would be really great on photo shoots, because I like to take some up close and some from further away.2. It depends what I am shooting. Outdoors I typically shoot between 200mm and 300mm and inside I really like the 50mm focal length.3. I do *like* MCP on Facebook

    1. I want to be able to shoot my kids in action and use that same lens to shoot my second wedding in July. I only have the kit lens and a 35mm, this would be the perfect addition, 18-270mm.2. I enjoy shooting around 18-35 for indoors and 50-200 for outdoors.3. I am now a fan of MCP Actions of facebook!!

    1-Would love this lens but since I have a full frame would definitely love the substitution!! 2 – My favorite focal length changes from time to time but now it is 85mm.3 – I am DEFINITELY your facebook fan from the beginning. I love everything you do>

  511. Jennifer D. on February 21, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    1. I would love to win this lens because while I have always been interested in photography as a hobby, I am now starting build a profile and hope to eventually become professional. As we all know, photography equipment is very expensive and I do not have a lens with his capability right now. It would be awesome.2. Right now I tend to use my prime lenses, either 50 mm or 85 mm.3. I like you on Facebook!!

  514. Kathy Hardy on February 21, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I would love to win this lens!! The main reason is, I just recently got my first DSLR camera…a Canon T1i and I need to start building my lens supply. My favorite shots are Macro [not very familiar with the different “focal lengths” – but I’m learning!]. And I actually “LOVE” MCP Actions on Facebook! Thanks for offering this lens Tamron!!

    1. I would love a lens that has such a huge range. I wouldn’t have to spend the extra time switching out lenses…especially when I’m outside with all that dirt flying around. 2. 50 is my current favorite range. 3. And I absolutely am a fan on Facebook already!Awesome contest, btw! Thanks for the chance!

  519. AmandaD on February 21, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    I *need* this lens because the 15x zoom is so awesome & I’d adore it!My favorite focal length is zoom- I know primes a sharper, but I take 99% of my photo with my zoom & move it around to fit what I need.I’ve long been an MCP fan on facebook!Thanks for the giveaway.

  520. Brandi Long on February 21, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I need this lens due to the fact that both my zoom lens have broke in the last 3 months, and I have a hard time shooting with only my 50mm 1.8. I love to shoot at 85 not to close not to far away.I LOVE MCP actions on Facebook, but there is no button for that.Thanks

  521. Melissa King on February 21, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    1. I need a great all around lens. 2. I only have the 50 and the kit lens. I love my 50.3. I have “liked” you on facebook for a long time. I love following your website.

  527. Jessica on February 21, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    1. I would love the flexibility a zoom like this would offer- allowing me to get close-up, full frame shots while far away. It be be a huge benefit for wedding and family sessions to capture detail without being in a client’s face.2. I usually shoot with a fixed 50 mm or 35 mmI want this lens!

  529. samantha nelson on February 21, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    1) I would love this lens! It would help me focus less on switching lenses during a shoot and more on improving my techniques. Brsides, it would make my husband happy too…less photography equipment debt to pay off! 2) 50mm fixed 3) scouts honor, I confirm I love your

  530. tamara on February 21, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    1- It would be great to have this wide range lens.2-My favorite right now is 50m3- I have “liked” on FB

  531. Randi on February 21, 2011 at 12:17 pm

  533. Anacari Uribe on February 21, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    There are many reasons why i would need this lens. Simply by looking at the picture results makes me want it even more. I currently only have two lenses by having this lens it will save me time from having to change lenses because this lens has the perfect focal lengths. I also am starting to photograph children and I know this lens will be perfect for the job and will give me excellent results!My favorite focal length would have to be 55mm.Yes, i have liked mcp actions on facebook and am very grateful to have done so. I also have subscribed to rss feeds!

  534. Laurie LeBlanc on February 21, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    1 – I currently own only two lenses, a 50mm and a macro lens and I really, really need a zoom lens. This lens would be a great complement to my prime lenses.2 – Favorite focal length varies between 50mm and 100mm.3 – I have “liked” MCP Actions on facebook for a while now!

  535. Jenn on February 21, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    1 – I don’t have anything that goes out that far, would be fantastic for hiking when lens changes can be tricky outdoors!2 – my current favorite focal length to shoot is wide angle, 18 range for landscape shots3 – like on FB!

    I would like this lens because it would be faster fr shooting psorts than the 200-500 Tameron and 28-300 Tameron lenses I currently use.My focal length varies depending on where the action is taking place on the field.I have liked MCP Actions on FB for awhile 🙂

  539. Dave B on February 21, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    1. I need this lens because I don’t have the money to buy it, and it would probably stay on my camera 99% of the time. That, and I sell everyone on what I do buy, so it would be in the best of Tamron’s interests to give me one so I can get others to buy it. (:2. I honestly like every range. I like really wide (11mm) but realistically I use the whole range of every lens I own. That’s why I’d love this lense.3. Yes- I’m a fan on FB and always will be.

  540. Pamela on February 21, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    1. I “need” 🙂 this lens for outdoor portrait photography!2. My favorite focal length is 85mm3. I like MCP on facebook

  541. Michael Karnes on February 21, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    1. I’m a photography enthusiast that is limited with a budget that would not allow me to purchase equipment like this. I’m new to DSLR photography and am teaching myself as much as possible with the assistance of purchased books that pretty much eliminate funds for luxury glass, which may be a staple of other photographers’ everyday kit 2. Right now 50mm (85mm since I purchases a DX)) due to the interest of portraits; however I immensely enjoy landscape photography…experimenting with HDR. 3. Already clicked “like”

  542. sarah on February 21, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    Q1: I need this lens because I really do not have a good wide angle zoom! I basically only use my 50mm! I have 2 kids and its getting harder and harder to chase them around with the fixed lens.Q2: My favorite length to shoot is 50mmQ3: Liked you!

  543. Amanda Swehla on February 21, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?A) I have been in the market for a lens like this for my full frame camera for months now… but with all the reviews I have been hesitant to pull the trigger, winning this lens would do it for me. This lens would maximize the strength of my new full frame lens, today I have a fixed 50mm and a 70-300 lens for that camera if I had the versatility of an 18-270 it would change my world! What is your favorite focal length to shoot? – I don’t have a favorite, I love the versitility of a zoom lens. Although I love my fixed focal length lenses I find myself running around like a crazy woman.Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior) – I have “liked” MCP actions on FB – A long time ago. *** – I added the RSS feed to my blog swehlaphotog.blogspot.com*** – Shared this on FB and the contest appears on my blog today

  544. Gary on February 21, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    1. This will be perfect for travel and for my daily walks.2. 50mm – the so-called normal focal length.3. “really” liked you on facebook a long time ago. 🙂

    1. Zoom, baby! I’d love this lens for soccer and all the other things I’m missing out on because I’ve got no “zoom.” :)2. 50mm, for now, anyway.3. I don’t *just* like MCP on Facebook, I love MCP on Facebook! But I “Like” it, too. :)Thanks for the giveaway!

  547. Tamara on February 21, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    1. Well, I’m pretty limited with the one lens I have now, but convincing my husband I NEED another lens is a different story 🙂 This would be a great addition!2. Probably about 503. I do like you!!

  548. Tara Prince on February 21, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    1. I would love to have a lens that can get super crisp images far or near without changing the lens. 2. Right now I am loving 50mm3. Yes I do like your facebook page.

  549. Michelle Hires on February 21, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    1. I need the lens because I don’t currently have a wide focal length or a long zoom length. This would fill in those blanks. 2. I am completely in love with my 50mm 1.4 3. I am an MCP fan on Facebook, have been for a while!

  550. Christine Neutgens of Pixelations Photography on February 21, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Woohoo! This post sure caught my eye! This new lens recently was added to my wish list of lenses so I was so excited to see this give away. Why do I need this?….It’s an amazing zoom lens….WITH vibration control!!!! When I read about this lens in my photography magazine I was imediately in love and had to add it to the top of my wish list…..just behind the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens. Why that lens….to answer your second question….it’s my favorite focal length! I feel with these two lenses, I’ll have all the coverage that I need and want. I’ve researched a lot and these two are my top choices! It would be AMAZING to win this lens! And to answer your final qusetion….I absolutely “like” MCP Actions on facebook!

    1. Why do you “need” this lens/how would it help your photography?I have a Canon f/1.4 50mm and the Tamron 17-55 f/2.8 and this lens would provide me with a everyday lens plus some zoom that I am currently missing. 2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?17 – 55mm, occasionally 200 – 300 mm for landscapes. 3. Confirm that you “like” MCP Actions on Facebook “ñ if you do not confirm this, your entry will NOT count (go here to “like us” if you have not prior)I confirmed.

  557. Sandy on February 21, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    1. It would be great to have one versatile lens that I can carry around. I have wanted to capture a picture of a red-tail hawk that sits high above in our tree and watches our dachshund! This sounds like the perfect lens!2. I usually like to shoot around 70. 3. I have “liked” you for awhile on FB but I’m going now to confirm!

  559. Erika Rebstock on February 21, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    I need this lens for my kids sporting events. I can’t always get close enough and the extra focal length would be amazing!I love to shoot between 50 and 85mm, if I can get close enough.And of course I already like MCP Actions!

  560. Viki Reed on February 21, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    I desperately need this lens! I currently have the 24-70 L canon but it won’t give me the bokeh or the distance I really need that this Tamron would give me. I have a 200mmL but that was for bird photos and some action stuff-either way it’s not wide enough and again the Tamron would solve that. I’ve sold all I can and work has been DEAD slow. My family can’t afford another lens but I dearly need it. Please lady luck.Currently my fav lens is my 50mm. I added a shot I took with it. The only thing better would be the 50mmL….someday….

    1- I would love to try out a lighter and smaller zoom! This would lighten up my camera bag when I’m doing sports photography.2- Depends on what I’m shooting, for portraits it is usually the ‘nifty fifty’ but for sports it is usually my big heavy 70-300.3- I’ve ‘liked’ you for a long time! 🙂

  569. Sara on February 21, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    WOW!! I would dieeee with this lens!!!!! I have recently gotten into wedding photography and right now the longest focal length I have is 70mm (24-70mm). This lens would allow me to capture those GREAT moments without being noticed!!!! I think right now my fav focal length would be 50mm….my prime of course. I think that is because that is what I most used to, but I think I would instantly fall in love with the 200mm ;-)WOOO HOOO!!! Great contest! THANKS!I have liked your page for some time! You rock!

  570. Chris on February 21, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    I’d love this lens because of the wide reach. I like to take pictures at my husband’s softball games, and having one zoom to cover the range of my two zooms would be terrific!I don’t have a favorite focal length, I like to take pictures of too many different things.And yes, I “like” you on facebook!

  571. Corina Iavarone on February 21, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    1. One can never have too many lenses. Though right now I am working with the kit lens because my 70-200mm telephoto lens broke and we don’t have the money to get it fixed at the moment! And this is the length I have been coveting!!2. It depends on what I am shooting and what mood I am in and what picture idea wants out of my head!!3. Just liked you on facebook and I’m enjoying checking everything out!

    I would like this lens to have a great walk around lens! My 70-400 is a bit too heavy for that. This lens would help me get out with my camera more! I love shooting at either 30 (I have a 30mm 1.4) or 400 (love those birds!!). I do like you on Facebook

  574. Leigh Love on February 21, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    I would love to have a versatile lens that does it all like this one! Wide angle and zoom!I love shooting with my 85mm for close up macro shots.I like MCP Actions on Facebook!

    1. It would be a great lens to have for walking around outside with clients. 2. lately 50mm but I’ve been aching for wider angles. I’m a prime snob but this would be great for an all purpose lens for adventures. 3. totally dig mcp already!

  579. Ashley Morrow on February 21, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    1 – I would love to have a lens as versitile as this, I currently only use a 35mm & while I love the sharpness & fastness of this lens I do oftentimes feel limited without having the option to zoom in/out.2 – My favorite focal length at this point would have to be 35mm since I don’t have other options, but I know I’d love to be able to pull back to 18 at times when shooting indoors & to have the ability to zoom even to 100-150 mm would be great, so the thought of being able to zoom to 270 with this lens is very exciting.3 – I liked MCP actions on Facebook! 🙂
