Tamron Try-On Trial Tips Trade Trip
Okay - this is two notices in one:
1. The rental department here at Camera Electronic have some Tamron lenses that you can borrow as trial runs - the Tamron people are promoting a try-before-you-buy idea based upon you operating some of their lenses for a few days or over a weekend. Then the idea is you-buy-after-trying...makes sense.
The lenses that our rental department are holding for this are:
a. Tamron AF 24-70mm f:2.8 Di VC USD in Canon or Nikon mount
b. Tamron AF 90mm f:2.8 SP Di VC USD Macro in Canon or Nikon mount
c. Tamron AF 70-200mm f:2.8 Di VC USD in Canon or Nikon mount
You'll need to call our rental department to make a booking and if it is the first time that you have ever rented something from us you'll need to bring in adequate ID - ask them what you need.
Tamron make some very good value-for-money lenses and one of these might just be the one you need.
2. The people at Tamron are nothing if not adventurous. And here is your chance to join them. Go to the website:
and look at the competitions they are running that involve the Taiwan Rocket Festival. There are two - one that involves you buying a Tamron lens and one that is free ( the free one will attract more entrants so you'd have a better chance of winning with the lens one...) but the prize seems to be a trip to the Taiwan Rocket Festival - billed as the world's most exhilarating fireworks party.
I looked up exhilarating in the dictionary and applied the definition to being close to Chinese fireworks factories in full bloom. Like watching those old films of Bikini Atoll where they all put on dark goggles and hunker down...
Nevertheless, we commend it to you. If you win, and go, and come back, please show us the images.
PS: The Vandenburg AFB and Semipalatinsk Rocket Festival people refused to answer the phone when I called. Grouchy...
