Tamron’s New 24-70 Lens can be yours! {$1,299 estimated street price}

As a photographer, there is nothing more flattering than having a one of your photos appear in front of a wide audience.  Thanks to Tamron, a photo I took during my adventure in Australia in June now appears inside millions of magazines inside the latest issue (September 2012) of Popular Photography.

In conjunction with this news, we are giving away a brand new Tamron 24-70mm lens. Details on how to enter are below the ad.

Since Tamron sent me the lens in April, I have shot a few thousand images with it in Australia, Alaska, Seattle and home in Michigan. I can honestly say I love the image quality. And the vibration compensation works amazing – trust me I have shot waterfalls handheld at 1/13 of a second and achieved crisp landscapes with flowing water. I’ve used the lens on floatplanes, boats, and helicopters, all of which have motion working against crisp images – and achieved sharp photos.

So are you ready to try to win one?



Imagine winning a brand new lens for your d-SLR camera. You will NOT want to miss your opportunity to own the Tamron 24-70mm Lens. Entering our giveaway is easy. See details below to learn how!

The Prize:

Tamron 24-70mm VC Lens (for full frame and crop sensors too).  The winner picks their choice of a Canon, Nikon or Sony mount (Sony cameras have image stability so there is not vibration compensation built into that mount).

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

    debra r says:

  73. 573
    julie says:

    I have been drooling over this lens- pick me!

  74. 574

    I currently am using a Canon 18-55 3.4-5.6 standard issue (very good) and a Sigma DG 70-300 (not happy with 250-300mm resolution).
    I am looking for an other lens to be a base lens. The Tamron 24-70mm looks good and I would like to give it a try. I need a good lens to get the best resolution possible. I guess that I should look at the other Tamron lenses and maybe get an additional body so I do not have change lenses all the time. ha ha

    Heidi says:

    I would LOVE this lens! I have been saving my pennies for it, but the pennies aren’t stacked very high so far. 90% of my work is charity photography for, and I do most of the shoots in poorly lit hospital rooms, so this lens would be absolutely fantastic for those sessions.

  81. 581
    Sarah says:

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

  82. 582
    Christy Holliday says:

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

    Kama says:

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

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

  87. 587
    Roberta says:

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

  96. 596
    Jon Ellegood says:

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