Versatility is important in photography gear, especially when it comes to lenses. In fact, most photographers will tell you that lenses represents one of the most important investments a photographer can make, more so than camera bodies. Seriously!

Whether you shoot weddings, portraits or landscapes, lens choice can either limit or enhance your creativity and sometimes mean the difference between getting and missing the shot.  For example, if you’ve ever tried to capture an important moment using a slow-focusing lens with variable aperture, then you know how limiting (or frustrating) it can be. Fortunately, it’s easier than you might think to get your hands on a quality lens.

We’ve teamed up with Tamron to offer one lucky winner an amazing new lens, the Tamron 17-70mm f/2.8 Di III-A (model B070), equivalent to 25.5-105mm on full-frame cameras. It is the world’s first F2.8 high-speed zoom lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras to achieve a 4.1x zoom ratio. Along with Tamron’s highly regarded VC image stabilization, this fast, sharp, and lightweight lens will allow you to focus on what matters, capturing beautiful images that you and your clients will love.
