Giveaway: Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Lens

  1. That extra 200mm would be very handy where mobility is limited like in KNP. The zoom range will also be nice to have. Not fun having only a prime 400mm and an elephant walks out the bush 60m from you!

  2. The “Possibilities” are endless. Landscapes, Architecture, but I would definitely do Wildlife. Another two passions I have and would certainly be a PLUS to utilize a lens of this caliber, is for Surfers riding the waves on our beautiful shores , and Aircraft doing aerobatics at an airshow.

  3. With a focal length range like this, one can get up-close and personal when shooting the great outdoors (in it’s natural habitat). A wonderful prize which will certainly be given a loving home for many years to come!
