And the winner is........?!

Fellow Nikonians it´s time to see who is the winner of the SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 Di II XR VC LD Aspherical lens sponsored by Tamron USA.

On Saturday (April 2) an amazing amount of Nikonians Image Doctors fans participated in the random drawing. To be honest, we expected a large amount of people entering, but you surpassed our expectations. It was awesome to see how many people have followed the podcasts. Thank you all!

Unfortunately this also had a result which we did not expect. With so many people jumping in at the last minute-- our server systems (even after being tested) eventually crashed. We are very sorry that a few of you did not come through to enter your comments.

This being said, we decided not only to take those into consideration who entered in time, but also all who got posted a little bit later. This seemed to be a fair and reasonable approach since the system did need more time to handle the buzz.

For the drawing we took the my dear colleague Lena and the app "random number" based in the iPhone App "AppBox Pro". As a result the lucky winner of the Tamron 17-50mm Lens is Doug Ford.

Doug Ford.jpgDoug is from Golden Valley, Minnesota. He is a journalist and photographer, formerly a software development manager. His avocations are bicycling, Civil War history, and cocktail history.

Cocktail history seems to have a higher priority since his website is all about cocktails from all over the World.

Congratulations from the Nikonians Marketing department.
