There were a variety of ways to enter the drawing, but only one winner was selected. The prize is to be the winner's choice of a brand new 35mm or 45mm f/1.8 Tamron lens. Each has a value of $599 and with their innovative design, offers photographers and videographers alike a new genre of lens. Without further ado, the winner is...

If you're unfamiliar with the Tamron 35mm and 45mm f/1.8 lenses, they were released this year. Both offer a unique niche to the photography community by being some of the only prime lenses that offer vibration reduction. This is not only valuable for photographers, it's fantastic for videographers. Not only does the wide aperture allow for work in low-light conditions, the VR dramatically improves video quality by reducing shakiness from handholding and keeping the image stabilized.
