Another Gear Giveaway from TheSlantedLens.com
Hot on the heels of our last successful giveaway (HD-2000 hand-held camera stabilizer), we at The Slanted Lens wanted to do another one. So, we scoured the interwebs for great items to give away. Among the interested parties (hint: more giveaways to come) were the good people at Tamron who jumped on the chance to give away one of their best lenses, the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD zoom lens ($1300 Value). Very gracious if you ask us! I personally shoot with this lens and you will hear how much I love it in our next three videos.
So, that said, one of you photographers are going to win this lens! But before I tell you how (there are lots of ways to enter, see below) I want to fill you in on the lens' specs, so you can start to drool a little.
Even when shooting in low-light conditions with a slow shutter speed, Tamron’s acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) allows for both a steady viewfinder display and stable handheld camera work to render sharp images.
To achieve resolution at the top of its class, the lens uses specialized high-performance optical configuration with three LD elements, three Glass Molded Aspherical Lenses, one Hybrid Aspherical Lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) elements.
Using a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, the lens achieves gorgeous blur (Bokeh) effects. It also features Tamron’s USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) system to power a speedy AF drive, Full-Time Manual (FTM) continuous manual focus mechanism, and moisture-resistant construction to help prevent water from penetrating the lens.
So, cool that it was voted Best Lens of the Year by EISA 2012-2013.
To see the full specs for this lens, a 3d pic & picture quality, please visit Tamron.
