Free Tamron 18-250mm lens to Digital Scrapbooking winner

The good folks at Tamron sent word that they have partnered with an outfit called Triscape to sponsor Digital Scrapbooking Day on November 3, 2007. Top prize is one of the all new Tamron AF18-250mm Di II All-In-One Zoom Lenses. If you’re curious about Digital Scrapbooking day, you can check out www.DigitalScrapbookingDay.com.

The good news, however, is that you don’t have to actually create a scrapbooking project to win. Apparently, there will be a straight drawing to determine the winner of the lens. All you have to do is send an e-mail to Tamron between now and December 10. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

If you are interested, click on over to:
http://www.tamron.com/lenses/digital_scrapbook07.asp and fill out your name and e-mail address.

Here are the rules from the Tamron site:

  • No purchase necessary.
  • One entry per email address.
  • Employees and family of F+W Publications and Tamron USA, Inc. are not eligible to enter.
  • Entries must be received by midnight 12/10/07 to qualify. Winner will be selected randomly from all entries and notified by 12/12/07 via email. If there is no response from the winner by 12/19/07 we will choose a new winner who in turn will have 5 business days to respond.
  • Open to U.S. residents only.
  • Void where prohibited by law.

The Di II All-In-One Zoom Lens is designed for APSC sensor digital cameras and is available in Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Sony mounts. I didn’t see anything about winner’s choice, but I assume whoever sends in the winning entry will be able to select which lens mount they want. No mention on the Tamron site that this lens is compatible with older Minolta dSLRs (7D, 5D), but if you choose the A-mount lens, I would think it would work with Minolta as well. Check with Tamron to be sure.

The 18-250 AF lens only weighs 15oz. and lists for $499. You can read more about it at www.tamron.com/lenses/prod/18250_diII.asp. I might just be willing to give up my e-mail address for a chance at winning one of these.

If you follow through and actually win the lens, be sure to let us know. I’m sure your fellow Alphatracks readers would like to congratulate you!
