    I’ve already fallen in love with my Tamron SP 70-300 zoom lens. It has broadened my goals in photographing wildlife from a distance. I would love to explore the close-up world of photography with the Tamron 90mm Macro Lens. I’ve found Tamron to offer superior performance and the best advanced features. They’re a star in my book.

  • Kieran Shaughnessy

    I am fourteen years old, and have recently taken up photography as a hobby, as I wanted to get out and about more often, and enjoy my surroundings more. To win the Tamron 70-300mm lens would truly mean a great deal to me, as I really would like to start doing some wildlife photography, but can never get close enough to anything with my Nikon kit lens (18-55mm). I would also like to be able to take some good photos at football (soccer) games that I go to, and the 70-300mm lens would be perfect for this. As I am only fourteen, saving up for a new lens is really difficult, so winning this competition would mean the world to me.

  • Steve Lambert

    Perfect shot!!

  • Jeremy Johnson

    I took this picture on one of my first photo walks around a local campus. One thing I found to be a point of frustration was trying to isolate a subject when I couldn’t zoom with my feet. The two main things that caused this frustration was trying to photograph the details of architecture, when I was interested in details that my 35mm prime lens couldn’t get close to, and when zooming with my feet would have put me in the middle of the road.

    Due to this, I think the Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD would help me improve my photography. The all in one lens would still grant me the ability to get the wider angle of my 35mm, but still let me zoom in where it would be needed. Additionally, the wide range of focal lengths would ensure that no matter how far or close a shot would be I would be able to grab it without having to switch lenses (and possibly miss the shot)!

  • Steve Lambert

    Beautiful color! What kind of butterflies are those?

  • Pawe? Swiader

    Few weeks ago I bought 70-300 VC USD Canon version and I am very happy with it. Very good quality lens. During those few weeks I was able to capture very nice photos of baby birds in my area. Spring time is amazing – and this lens on my cropped Canon camera works great. I want to try macro photography and 90 mm lens could help me a lot, because I don’t have got macro lens, yet. :).

  • Michael Galli

    This shot was taken with a Tamron AF 18-200mm F/3.5 – 6.3 DI II on a Nikon D3200. My first love is landscape photography, I would love to get the 28-300mm, the added VC and extra zoom would really help my outdoor photos. Having said that, I would also love the 90mm, macro is something I would like to explore and improve upon. And honestly the same would apply to the 70-300, I occasionally take some sport photos and that would come in handy. For now I’m working with two lenses, the aforementioned Tamron and a 35mm f / 1.8 for night photography. The next step is upgrading to a full frame camera, but having a new lens would go into improving my skills.
    Since I assume it won’t be possible to win them all I leave the choice to faith or more specifically you.
    You can all check some of my work on instagram.com/michaelgalliphotography as well as the Facebook page with the same name.

    The photo is from Pigeon Point in Trinidad & Tobago, shot at 48mm – f / 10 – 1/400sec – ISO 100

  • Michael Galli

    Stunning!

  • Juliet Black

    I love the feeling this picture has,by the way great job!

  • Lulzime Domi

    An amazing combination between fashion and artistic photography.

  • Arniel Chico

    I am really fascinated with Macro shots and images. In every set of pictures I scanned in the internet my interest were always driven into the details of the macro images. I really love to have that same shots someday, my wish.
    I still do not have a prime macro lens but all the time tried and tried to capture one using my TAMRON 18-200. I do have some nice macro shots but not close to what envied and imagined all the time. This is the reason why I did not waste a second when I see this post. I need to submit an entry with hope to have a Tamron 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD lens and winning it will be the fastest way for me to get there.
    I can’t really wait to see what I have imagined: how the BOKEH of this lens make the subject stand-out, the fast aperture will surely make beautiful pictures in lower lights, the 1:1 is a big step forward from my 18-200 and the focus limiter will help me catch the magic moments I imagined.

  • Zoltan

    Thank you Steve, I think but not sure those are the European Peacock (Aglais io).

  • Vijay

    This pic I captured this pic through a small window in the bus by which I was going to office.

    I like Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD lens, as I realised few disadvantages of using multiple lenses (I have Nikon D5300 with a 18-55mm kit lens, 55-200mm and 35mm 1.8f G all Nikon lenses) I like light weight stuff and this lens is perfect for my taste, being lightest 540g among the it’s range and also which solves my problem of using multiple lenses.

    Disadvantages of multiple lenses
    Few times I missed important moments as no time to change lenses.
    I dropped my 55-200mm lens while changing lens.
    My camara got a spec on the mirror, luckily I don’t see it on the photos.

    So this lens (A Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD) can avoid all my above mentioned situations and also I love the light weight stuff. And due to advanced technologies in this lens PZDrive for quiet AF & Compact design. VC which gives crisp shots handheld. And UXR, XR, LD elements & BBAR coating to produce high IQ pics. Circular diaphragm for brilliant bokeh. All in a wonderful lens. Thank you Tamron for coming up with a gem.

    I also like prime lens. Using my 35mm prime I need to go close to shoot, I can avoid it with 90mm and better bokeh..

  • Dakota Rakov

    I really really need a dedicated macro! I am just starting out and just have a canon kit lens so anything will help

  • István Csubák

    I have been taking photos for 3 years. As to me I prefer macro photos,catching the small details.I have Canon 100D with 18-55mm lens and I try to make macros by this.I must stand close to the nature and its creatures, which sometimes means obstacle if I do not want to disturb them. To have excellent quality I have to make lots of shot.Tamron 90mm lens would be a huge help for my work and suit my needs to make macros from a bigger distance.

  • rmrmsix

    I am just starting my photograph journey and would love to have the opportunity to expanding my abilities with a Tamron 90MM. I LOVE to shoot image and close-ups and find images. It makes the world so much more real to see what is always been present but hidden. The photo I call Howling Wolf, I shot in Antelope Canyon, AZ and was something my mother-in-law loves to look at on her wall of her home now. I was totally surprised when i saw it and never thought I would be able to have the light to get the image. It is one of the best I have ever taken!

  • babary

    I took this photo in a park few weeks ago. The time was
    early in the afternoon and spring sunshine illuminated leaves. I really love
    such a natural lighting and I always seek opportunities to take photos lit by
    natural light. Tamron 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 DI VC PZD Lens is well suited to
    capture exceptional pictures in sunshine. Although, it is a zoom lens with high
    variety of focal length, but as Talia Krohmal in his comprehensive review in early
    in the 2015 has concluded, best performance of this lens can be seen in in
    well-lit environment. As a result, this lens is one of my favorite for
    landscape photography in day light, firstly because its performance in such an
    environment, and second because of its wide variety of focal length.

  • Larkin Small

    Oh wow, I would love to win this! Especially the 70-300mm, which is a focal length missing from my kit. I have the Tamron 24-70mm and it’s gorgeous, so I’m excited about the build quality, and Tamron’s customer service, it’s been great. I would love to be able to get close in to my subjects from further away when I’m on a location shoot – in gorgeous San Francisco, CA!

    I took this photo in some of the dying Autumn light at the end of a newborn shoot, with a macro (great for those tiny faces!) This shot was totally for myself.

  • Ritwik Mishra

    Hi! Best wishes to all fellow photographers and good luck for the contest.

    The Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Macro Lens would be a welcome addition to my collection and help me to broaden my horizons in the wondrous realm the macro photography.

    The attached photograph to me is the epitome of the all encompassing warmth and light of our beloved and often revered “Sol” (the Sun).

  • BA

    I love macro photos. Being able to capture all the intricate details of insects and plants is something I really want to get into. Winning the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens would be amazing. I would be able to capture life at a magnification ratio of 1:1. At F/2.8, I could let more light in. This would allow me to hold off a bit longer and save up to buy an off camera flash. The moisture-proof and dust-resistant construction would come in very handy while I’m out early in the the dew-laden fields searching for interesting insects to photograph. I also really like how it can double as a portrait lens and create a nice bokeh background. I love my Tamron SP 70mm-300mm Di VC USD Zoom lens. It has been instrumental in letting capture amazing wildlife photos. The Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens would be an amazing addition to my bag. Thank you!

    “The Mirror Lake” I am photographing for 4 years now. I make photos about animals,flowers and spectacular landscapes as well. I have a Canon 55-250 lens.By this i am not really able to take macros with a good quality.Tamron 28-300 lens would give me a great opportunity to make macros and photos from the distance, using the same lens.

    Photography for me is a warmth-inducing reason to keep fragments of time perennially close to my heart. Photography shoots memory into captivity and keeps me going bringing forth a crinkle of a smile from deep within or a tear silently bobbing down the cheek.

    I currently own a Nikon D5200 with a AF-S NIKKOR 35mm Prime lens, a AF-S NIKKOR VR 18-105mm lens, a SONY tripod and a Nikon ML-L3 Remote. Not much but I am learning and my arsenal will grow as I progress…

    They say you do not need tons of tech to make magic. They are right but what if I want to capture the majesty of an eagle soaring in the sky or a mother feeding its baby in her ramshackle homely abode or even a faraway sun-ray glinting from a church tower. The Nikon zoom lens allows me to be discreet and peek into the distance but not quite far enough.

    The Tamron SP 70-300mm Di VC USD Zoom Lens (model A005) will fit right in with what I (and my Nikon) aspire to magnify but often fall flat. Tamron’s promise of image stabilisation, VC backed sharpness and other technical wizardry will be so good to own.

    Tamron represents that magical messenger of hope that will let me play a photography god from a distance to capture an instance of time for my heart to beat with more joy….

    When fusion of creative vision and technology goes hand in hand you get to see those stunning & spectacular images….

    Love towards nature and lighting drew my attention towards photography, images taken from Tamron 90mm f/2.8 were inspirational at the initial stage of learning.

    I admired & loved the images which had bokeh effect, sharpness & specially the magnification of the macro world which were usually unseen by many through their naked eyes.

    Be it across any camera models the macro lens has been loved and lauded by many amateur, hobbyists and professionals who captured portrait’s, Tabletop & Macro shots. Anyone out there with passion & love for photography would definitely love to have one in their kit.

    During such learning phase i tried my hand in those reverse-lens adapters which had minimal control over focusing and f stop adjustments, and those shots were mostly restricted to still objects & creatures. With some successive attempts I was able to capture few great images also.

    But this particular image reiterated the importance of a fast focusing lens with Image stabilization & wide aperture option.

    I was up-close to the sensitive creature pleading for a pose. The blue-banded bee zipped fast across bunch of flowers on our roof top garden to collect the nectar from it, literally ignoring a gigantic human-being around him who was on his knee’s armed with DSLR with a kit-lens battling against the sunshine and breeze. I rapidly fired few shots at him, here is one of them. I thank him for the courtesy showed upon me.

    This is why “I desperately need one”

    As much as I love my starter camera with it’s Nikkor 18-55 lens, I realize all the time the limitation of what I want to photograph whether it’s wanting to capture something small like the texture of a mushroom or a spectacular view while camping. Wow, what I think I could do with any one of these lens… The Tamron 28-300mm would be a great companion on my next Colorado trip. Or the Tamron SP 90 would be my go to lens when I’m working in the yard and I see something amazing I need to capture.

    I caught this Black Rat Snake swimming at a nearby lake just before sunset. I believe that with a high quality Tamron lens, I could improve my clarity, light management and bokeh. Thank you for hosting this contest!

  • Lizbitt M

    I took this pic using my Tamron 150-600 mm telephoto lens. I love macro photography and feel with the right lens I could take my photography to the next level. I have much to learn but am having a fantastic time learning!!

  • Isa

    What a great contest! I have been looking at all three lenses with much interest. I think, like most here, I have fallen in love with the Tamron 28-300MM F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD. There are just so many advantages to using this lens! It’s a great all-round lens, making it perfect for many different types of photography. The fact that you can use just one lens is great when you spend many miles hiking into the mountains to get the perfect shot, or travel frequently, like I do. Switching lenses all the time is not my favourite thing! Despite being an all-round lens, it produces images of great quality. Another plus is that it produces little flare (great for those who like making sunshine photo’s!), it’s very compact, and it’s moisture resistant! Really, there is little reason not to love this lens! Moreover, the VC makes it possible to take sharp photo’s even when there’s little light. I like this fact, because I don’t always take my tripod with me! The quick focus thanks to the PZD is also great when you take photo’s of wildlife (when you’re out in the mountains, seeing wildlife is quite a frequent thing, and it’s great to be able to photograph them!). The blur effect is really nice, enabling you to make creative use of the depth of field.
    So, wherever I want to take photo’s of the landscape, details, people of wildlife, this lens will guarantee a great shot!
    PS: the photo is made out of several photo’s with a 18-55mm canon lens. Pyrenees – Vignemale

    Beautiful!

  • Marlowe Lacsina

    I love the warm colors of this sunflower taken with my 19mm lens under a bright sunlight. But I hope to improve it further with a Tamron SP 90mm F2.8 Macro Lens for a 1:1 magnification, sharper image quality, reduce flare, and give a touch of elegant bokeh effect. Although the enhanced VC functionality might have been a great pair for my Sony mirrorless camera which doesn’t have IBIS, motion blur can be easily overcome using a tripod. The advance USD control software in Tamron lens is surely a match to Sony A6300’s superior autofocus speed – an essential feature when capturing those quick little creepers. Weighing only 600g and measuring 11.46cm (Nikon), this lens make it also ideal for travel and street photography.

  • Paul Johnrou Bechayda

    I like to travel and do some simple action shoots in between. Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD lens is what I need so I won’t need to change my lens from wide angle to zoom lens to get a wonderful bokeh for my sports shoots. Changing lens is often inconvenient and a bit risky especially in windy and dusty location.

  • Sai Soe Moe Aung

    Hi, I am a learner of photography. Here is my shot with Nikon D3200+Tamron 18-200 A14 lens, taken at Kantawgyi Lake, Yangon, Myanmar. I believe winning any of the three lenses would greatly improve my photography as I am interested in all sort of photography, and I am really willing to experience Tamron’s VC feature that my lens lacks.

  • Ramóna Csubák

    “Sunset in the Town” I take photos over 2 years. I like making photos about the clouds,sunset and landscapes also. Everyday I take one about the sky, because the sun and clouds are always in a different way and the lights just make it a miracle. I have a Canon lens.Tamron 28-300 could help to take macros and distance photos as well.

  • “All Hail The Sun”

    A Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD lens would be a great addition to my teaching tools. It would give an excellent opportunity to show the different range of the lens to our students. It will also be an excellent travel lens while I am on the go with a light bag. I’ve had the opportunity to shoot with a 28-300 before and always wanted that chance again.

    This model is posed in front of my Sanyo Xacti. For my Nikon DSLR I have a couple of manual lenses.. I read and listened to the Tamron lens and some of them would have meant a great deal.

  • pol rosenthal

    The 90mm macro is exciting. I picked up some extension tubes for my 35mm f1.8 (shooting Sony a6300), but it’s not satisfying. A true macro seems to be in the cards. I read the spec page and it sounds great, but the posted images really sell it. The light coming through the little mushroom caps and the ridiculous amount of resolved detail; I want to play with that!

  • Bobbi Petherick

    The 28-300mm will provide me with opportunity to capture moments I might otherwise miss. I shoot with a full frame camera, and I want lens that provides flexibility and versatility in range, and is light weight, without compromising performance and loosing image quality.

    This 28-300mm would be great lens to have when I’m out for a hike or at my favorite sunset place and a beautiful deer walks into the frame. I might only have a matter of seconds to capture that moment. I”d loved to be able to zoom in quietly on the deer, capture the silhouette, and then zoom back out, and be ready to capture the sunset. This lens can do all of that with, and provide sharp, crisp, high-contrast images in both of these situations.

  • Tim

    If I had a Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Macro Lens I would be able to take macro photos myself, rather than only being able to take photos of people taking macro photos.

  • Brad Watson

    Just a chipmunk hanging out on a dog for a quick photo shoot. Taken with a d70s (upgrading soon) & an equally old Tamron 70-300mm telephoto with macro (no VC). Would love the 28-300mm for it’s VC, quiet motors & it’s big range of view is great for those “grab one lens” trips. I also would love to see how the macro lens would advance my photography of the smaller things in life, But in the end I would be happy with the newer 70-300mm for it’s VC & I am sure much quieter then my current one.
    Good luck to all the other entries, some amazing shots!

  • Jason Low

    This is the photo that first got me into photography! I was so happy to catch the peddle boat just drifting off into the beautiful sunset at the Summer Palace in Beijing.

    I took this back in 2008 with an old point-and-shoot but would have loved to be using a Tamron 28-300mm Di VC PZD lens instead. An all-around, versatile lens like the Tamron would be really helpful in my travel photography especially now that I’ve got a better full-frame camera. I’d be able to just take the 28-300 and use it on everything from landscapes to portraits to wildlife and the VC is definitely an added bonus for those long-range and/or low light situations.

I would be able to capture life at a magnification ratio of 1:1.

I also really like how it can double as a portrait lens and create a nice bokeh background. I love my Tamron SP 70mm-300mm Di VC USD Zoom lens. It has been instrumental in letting me capture beautiful wildlife and landscape photos. The Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens would be an amazing addition to my bag. Thank you and good luck!

  • I’ve been shooting with a Nikon 18 – 105mm for the last year and a half, and I’ve become comfortable making landscape images like this one, made at Salinas National Monument in New Mexico. But I have an opportunity to go to Tanzania to do service projects at a school, and also to spend a week photographing in the Serengeti. Either of the Tamron zoom lenses would allow me to capture wildlife images, as well as photograph the children at the school from a distance without making them self-conscious. Thanks for the opportunity!
