The Tamron 16-300mm Lens Sweepstakes

Register to win a Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Lens (MSRP $629.00) we are giving away.

According to the company:


Tamron's 16-300mm Di II VC PZD Macro sets a new standard for All-In-One zoom lenses with its world's first 18.8X range that's perfect for travel photography.

Advanced optical and mechanical design technology achieve high image quality in this incredibly compact and lightweight zoom that covers 16mm to 300mm and provides macro focusing for superb close-ups. The VC image stabilization system delivers significantly sharper images for handheld tele and low-light shooting, while the PZD autofocus is fast and quiet.

The sophisticated lens design corrects optical aberrations, while state-of-the-art multi-layer coating significantly minimizes ghosting and flare to deliver images of exceptional clarity. And moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens in inclement weather.

Designed exclusively for your Canon, Nikon or Sony APS-C sized digital SLR camera. Just one lens. For every travel moment. (Please note that the winner will get to specify which type of camera they have so we can match it with the correct lens mount.)

Never owned a Tamron lens. Never purchased a Tamron lens. Never knew anyone that used a Tamron lens. Never read a review that made me want to buy a Tamron lens. Maybe this Tamron lens is different?

good luck to all !

Leuvenaar230's picture

Oh yeah, i need this one, I could then leave several other lenses at home :-)

dannymfg's picture

I'm a long distance backpacker, and I always get amazed looks when people see that I brought a bulky DSLR with me into the wilderness instead of a lightweight point and shoot. This lens would be amazing to take with me into the wilderness because it would serve many functions and I could leave my other lenses at home. As a full-time student, it's hard to save up money for new lenses. This one would prove to be invaluable to me. Thank you for offering this.

ArtOfPerception's picture

Just purchased an EOS 70D for my upcoming trip to Thailand, and very interested in learning about photography. Maybe with this nice lens, I will be able to share a photo that could be considered the "photo of the day"!

1983matt's picture

Since i'm looking for a nice wide angle lens for my new alpha77mk2 this would be ideal. Great give away.

I have the previous model of this lens. Except for lens creep (which I understand they have corrected in the newer model) I have no complaints. It's a fantastic lens to travel with.

Sitting at the table, cleaning my equipment WHEN the dog decided to chase the cat and the cat decided to escape by jumping on the table. He slide across the table and knocked over some filters & gulp my 70-210 mm Nikon lens.
I need a replacement ..... of my Nikon lens, i'm still keeping my cat. And yes the dog & cat get along with each other. They were just playing!

ajc40121's picture

I'm a believer in the Tamron one-lens concept. 15-20 years ago I was shooting weddings with only a Tamron 28-105mm f2.8 lens on my Nikon 90s film camera. Nothing I'd like better than to upgrade to the 16-300mm Tamron on my digital Nikon(s).
