Tamron Celebrates 30th Anniversary as Lens Manufacturer's US Subsidiary

March 1, 2009-- Commack, NY -- To commemorate the establishment of Tamron USA three decades ago, and to show our deep appreciation to all our loyal supporters, we have produced an exquisitely designed, limited edition lapel pin that we're making available to Tamron enthusiasts. These beautifully crafted, high quality cloisonné pins will be distributed at Tamron events and to Tamron owners spotted using their lens by Tamron USA representatives.

Each pin is sequentially numbered on the back, and by registering this Personal Pin Number with Tamron, you'll automatically be eligible to win a state-of-the-art Tamron AF18-270mm VC ultra-zoom lens, or a $100 Gift Card redeemable at your favorite local authorized Tamron dealer. We encourage you to wear your Tamron USA 30th Anniversary lapel pin with pride, and to sign up for this unique and exciting prize drawing.
