Breaking News: Win a Tamron AF 28-300 mm VC with Vibration Compensation Lens

Some lucky winner is going to walk away with a new Tamron lens by TakeGreatPictures.com
The website is hosting a sweepstakes and this Tamron AF 28-300mm VC with Vibration Compensation is the grand prize. You've got until now and June 8 to subscribe to the site and get entered to win. My readers will know that I frequently post about information and techniques I get from the talented pool of shooters associated with TakeGreatPictures, including one of my favorite instructor's Russ Burden who provides information for Monday "Instructor's Tip." So don't just subscribe to get the camera, but take advantage of the great tips of the trade available for free on this site.

Here are some details about the lens:

"The new AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO zoom lens is a high power zoom lens designed for DSLR cameras with full-size image sensors (Model A20) and now equipped with a Vibration Compensation (VC) mechanism, delivers a remarkable 4 stops of extra shutter speed. The AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC is the ultimate high power zoom lens that covers everything from wide-angle to telephoto and macro. Tamron has incorporated a Vibration Compensator—an anti-shake mechanism developed by Tamron—into this highly versatile zoom lens. The new AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO zoom lens offers the convenience, comfort and versatility of a high power zoom lens and the capability to reduce hand-shake blur on DSLR cameras using either APS-C size or full-size format imagers.

When the AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC is used with a full-size format SLR camera, it covers a tremendous focal length range from 28mm in wide angle to 300mm ultra telephoto. When mounted on a DSLR with an APS-C sized imager, the lens covers a 43mm wide angle to 465mm ultra telephoto (full size format equivalent, in a diagonal angle of view of 5°20’)."

My Tamron 24-70 mm was a great replacement for the kit lens that came with my Canon Rebel XTi, so I think Tamron produces so good quality glass for the price. Hey, if you win, hit me up with a little something-something, you know? You heard it hear first!
