[Contest] The Winner Of A Nikon D800 Or Canon 5D Mark III Is

A few weeks ago Fstoppers teamed up with SLR Lounge for a contest giveaway. The contest wasn't just any contest though; we wanted to give one of our lucky readers either a brand new Canon 5D Mark III or Nikon D800 camera of their choosing. All the entries were in by April 30th, and yesterday we picked our lucky winner. Cross your fingers and say a little prayer before you hit the full post...

After following both SLR Lounge and Fstoppers on Facebook, the luckiest guy in the photo world today is....Matt Gleason with Matt Gleason Photography!

Matt is a child, infant, and newborn photographer based out of Middleboro, MA. We haven't told him yet that he is the lucky winner so leave your congrats in the comments below. If you are active on the social media circuits (and we think most of you are), break the news to Matt on his Twitter account or his Facebook Page. And Matt, please email us and let us know which one of these sick new DSLR cameras you want!

Thanks for everyone who entered. After the random winner was chosen, we looked at the raw data and we have some very dedicated readers! Even as some readers had entries in the hundreds, it was pretty exciting to see someone win with relatively few entries....congrats again Matt.
