We're giving away a Sony α7 III camera with a 28-70mm zoom lens! See how to enter.

The Sony α7 III is a favorite among many photographers – you’ll find it in Sony Artisan and adventure photographer Renan Ozturk’s bag, wedding photographer Carlos Elizondo’s bag and portrait pro Jermaine’s Horton bag, just to name a few. Alpha Collective member Mahesh Thapa (@starvingphotographer) loves the camera for landscapes and says, "What was actually pleasantly surprising was the quality of images and how malleable those files were. I mean I was able to recover highlights and shadows like nobody's business."

The Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 is a sharp and ultra-portable lens, making it a top choice for street, travel and more. Street photographer and Alpha Collective member Ashley Noel (@nyroamer) packs it in her street photography kit and says, “Focus is fast, silent and accurate, which is ideal when you’re on the go.” Alpha Collective member Scott Wesson (@thetravelvibe) also packs the lens in his travel kit and says, “The lens takes great quality photos, especially for its price and it’s so lightweight that it’s easy to have in my bag just in case.”
