Win a TAMRON AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD lens
SONY DSLR owners:
If you do not already have one of these lenses, I invite you to participate in a small contest to win one. This is a friendly contest, so do not get nuts.
I have a TAMRON AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD MACRO (Minolta/SONY mount) lens that needs a new home. It is in very good condition and has been rarely used. A $159 lens, when new.
To win this lens, you need to write a reply to this thread with the following basis:
"I believe Don should purchase the SONY AF 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM lens to replace his Tokina AT-X 840 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 and TAMRON SP AF 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di LD lens for the follow reason: (then provide a detailed rationale for why I should do this, which specifications of all three lenses stated and whatever supporting evidence you can come up with)"
Also, the winner must cover the shipping of the lens to your location from Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Yeah ... you all may learn something with this. That is not so bad, pushing forward the forum's vast knowledge and experience.
Good luck and I look forward to reading some interesting discussion and ultimately deciding the most compelling of the lot. Get started ... yeah! :D
