You may remember the great review that Sarah Phillips did of Tamron’s new AF18-270MM F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens.  If you missed it, you can find all the details along with some great examples of what this lens is capable of here.  This lens is available for Canon, Nikon and Sony camera bodies.

The details:

Tamron’s next generation 18-270mm, the world’s lightest, smallest 15x zoom optimized for use on APS-C- DSLRs, continues the pursuit of the ideal all-in one zoom lens. Combining prior award-winning achievements with new engineering breakthroughs yielded the remarkable 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Piezo Drive). Special piezoelectric technology now delivers faster, quieter precision autofocusing. Tamron’s exclusive tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, featuring three pairs of driving coils and low-function ball bearings placed around the VC optical group, combats camera shake-related image blur. It’s Tamron VC that allows handheld shooting at as many as four shutter speeds slower than otherwise possible with a dramatically stable viewfinder experience. Compactness and light weight are preserved, thanks in part to the VC mechanism’s newly-developed moving coil mechanism.

Defining compositional freedom the 18-270mm Di-II VC’s incredible 15x zoom range provides a 35mm picture angle equivalency of 28mm to 419mm, with image fidelity assured by advanced optical design featuring LD glass and aspherical optics, working in concert to render crisp, colorful and faithful images.

    Liked both pages! Photography means being able to capture fleeting moments of my kids and make them last a lifetime..

  • Megan Rion from Imag says:

    I like both of the pages and put it as my status! Photography is my passion. I am a newborn and children photographer in Louisiana. It seems when I see something I see it as a picture and it inspires me! I would love to win the lens! I shoot Nikon.

  • Lisa Rheingans says:

    I had already “liked” CM, and so I just went over and “liked” Tamaron.

    The thing I love about photography is being able to capture the moment in that one click. I love being able to look back and see those moments that mean so much in my life.

  • Dana Moyer says:

    I went to both the pages and clicked like on both.

    I love being able to capture a moment in time with my camera. Whether that's a photo of a pet, landscape or a flower from my garden.

  • Carrie says:

  • Angie Helmbright says:

    I wish there was a "love" button! But I liked both pages!

    I didn't know how much i loved photography until the pictures that I was taking were of my own baby. Now I know that I will probably die with my Nikon in my hand! My daughter was born with issues that required us to visit the Kennedy Kreiger Institute on a regular basis. My photos of her took me to a place that made me feel happy and like we were "normal". Eight years later she is perfect. I have worked in studios and for other people. I even owned my own studio but something was always missing. So I started shooting for people that needed it like I once did. These days, most of the time that I spend on photography is spent taking pictures of children that are terminally ill. I don't charge the families because when I think back on my families darkest moment, I remember how much happiness was brought to me by just looking at photos of a happier moment. Suddenly everything rang bright with hope, even if just for a moment. I love giving others their share of peace. To me photography is happiness, hope, and proof that a "better day" can happen every day. To me, photography is life in still form.

    I love photography. It allows us to capture those special moments in time. Those times that we think we could never possibly forget, but with other life experiences they fade away in our thoughts until a photo of that time reappears and we relive it all over again! Our photos are priceless and forever! I love you Tamron and Clickinmoms!!!! Thank you for this opportunity!!
