Listed below are the posts from the winners of the Tamron 100-400mm F/4.5-6.three Di VC USD, and Tamron SP 45mm F/1.eight Di VC USD, respectively.

Andi – The zoom is EXACTLY what I want proper now. My daughter, who has cerebral palsy, has been a swimmer since she was 7. I’ve at all times been capable of get first rate motion photographs indoors in dim lighting utilizing both a 50mm or 85mm prime lens, however,,, She has been in growth camp with US Paralympics coaches and determined this 12 months to decide to swim as a result of she desires to make the US Paralympic Staff (and she or he has a shot – she turned the primary paraswimmer in state historical past to compete in breaststroke two weeks in the past in our state’s highschool swimming championships and can swim within the Canadian-American Paraswimming Championships and doubtless the World Para-swimming World Collection in 2019). As a result of she is now swimming in a lot bigger venues, I want a lens with higher attain than the primes I’ve used previously, however these venues even have higher lighting so I can get away with an f4.5-6.three and nonetheless get first rate motion photographs.

Shannan – It might be DREAMY to win both of those implausible lenses! A decade in the past I discovered about a corporation known as Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. My daughter had been given a deadly prognosis and NILMDTS despatched a photographer to the hospital to take images of our candy child as she died. I cherish these images and am so grateful to have them. I’ve been working towards volunteering as a photographer for NILMDTS and the 45mm F013 can be a go-to lens to offer these households the images that they are going to cherish as a lot as I do. Hospital rooms are tight, between the gear, employees and households and I don’t have the house for a tripod. Tamron’s implausible VC will assist me supply tack sharp pictures of those candy infants and the Ultrasonic Silent Drive will assist me soften into the background so I don’t disturb the occasion.

Each lenses can be an awesome addition to my backpack as properly! I really like taking pictures nature and backpacking off path on rugged terrain to seize the fog rolling in or a babbling brook. I’ve been pushing aside shopping for a telephoto lens for some time as a result of each as soon as counts if you end up backpacking! However Tamron has made it accessible with out shedding high quality. The VC and the moisture resistant building are additionally a should. I typically go away the tripod at camp if I’ve to climb to a vista. The VC on the 100-400mm A035 is wonderful and would enable me to depart that tripod again with extra confidence. And, like I stated, the moisture resistant building will let me concentrate on the shot as a substitute of bagging up!

Thanks for making high quality glass and giving me the chance to get my fingers on some!
