After a short break from giveaways, I’m very excited to announce this latest lens giveaway. I’m also very excited about the lens I’m giving away this time. As probably already know it’s a rather nice Tamron 24-48mm f/3.5-3.8 wide zoom lens very kindly provided for this giveaway by TheLensDoctor.
It’s a solid build, quality lens cable of producing really sharp images and dreamy flares when playing with the sun. I’ve tested this lens before the giveaway and I was really impressed with the performance. You can check out the test video HERE if you haven’t done it already.
As mentioned in the video this lens has been fully rebuilt and fully repainted by TheLensDoctor. On top of that it has been professionally de-clicked using, giving this lens a very smooth, variable aperture adjustment, usually found in cine lenses. Incredibly useful feature for video work.
The lens is now in excellent condition, very clean inside with literally unmarked optics. Overall it’s a real pleasure to use. It will come with the original front cap. You’ll just need to buy the Adaptall to (your camera) adaptor from ebay and you will be able to enjoy this beauty on your cam.

Rules, Terms & Condition for the Giveaway:
To manage the whole giveaway I’m using a I’m a rafflecopter.com to help me track all the entries and make things clearer.
Entering is very simple as before, all you need to do is complete 1 of 9 steps below. To qualify for 1 entree you only need to complete 1 step, but completing more will more give you more point, hence give you higher chance of winning. Please note, that the winner will NOT be chosen by the amount of point. The extra points will just give extra entries: 1 point = 1 entree, 2 points = 2 entries, 3 points + 3 entries, etc.
To earn yourself extra entries you can also tweet the message shown in the widget below once every day, just make sure that you do it through rafflecopter widget below. Any entries made in any other way will not be entered into competition, only the ones processed through rafflecopter.
The giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere. I will post it anywhere in the world for free, so don’t let you location stop you from entering; previous winners included people from US, Canada, Italy, Algeria and other countries! I will try to post the lens by a recorded postal service which will require a signature on delivery (depending on location of the winner), but in an unfortunate event of the lens going missing in transit, I will not be held responsible and no alternative prize will be offered. Fortunately this has never happened and hopefully will not.
Good luck to everyone entering. The winner will be announced in once the competition is over in just 10 days time.
