Well, the time has come for me to announce the winners of our Nikon D610 giveaway!

ccs-1-0-27283600-1381206336_thumb.jpg

 

Sifting through the thousands of entries was a challenge as well as somewhat of a painful process.  Lots of people submitted invalid entries; some were even bold enough to lie about their post counts or put in gibberish instead of a URL, etc.  We even got a few fake usernames in the mix, which was entertaining.  Rest assured that all cheaters were kept out of the final drawing.  If you cheated, did you really expect us to give you a free $2000 camera without thinking twice?  Nice try!

 

At the same time I'd like to extend a big "thank you" to those who actively participated in the giveaway and were active on the forum.  I've enjoyed watching the forum grow since its launch in October of last year, and I'm looking forward to lots of fun times in the future!  While we're not going to be following up this giveaway with another one right away, we do have monthly photo contests with prizes if you'd like another challenge!

 

As promised top raffle ticket holders have all gotten premium account upgrades here on the forum.  Those members are:

That leaves us with just one order of business: the grand prize winner.  And that winner is forum member Alden.  Congratulations!  Soon, B&H will be sending you a shiny new camera.  I'm sure you'll love it!

Well done and congratulations Alden, as commented by Nicole (nbanjogal) above, I look forward to seeing your first photo's with your new camera and would actually like to see a photo of the camera in it's box when it arrives. I am particularly pleased it was you as you were on my mental list of those I hoped would win. My main disapointment is that Nicole's handle - nhanjogal does not appear on the list, as she has provided us all with encouragement and helpful tips over the past few months - which I think that many of you would agree.

Good point.  Nicole has been posting a lot, yet I see some people with very few forum posts make that list, including one person who has only 6 posts.   :unsure:

Wow, congrats Alden.  What are your plans?  Are you going to sell your other gear to fund some full frame lenses?

I agree. I was surprised to see that she was not on the list as well. I will take some picts of it for you and post when it arrives.

Well, I do have a very nice D80 from 2007 that I might let go for an FX lens or two. I actually have an f/1.8 50mm D lens that I think will work fine, and also a couple of older 35mm lenses that should work too. I know I will want to get a new lens or two though.
