    I few I have collected with the 70-150mm Vivitar and A6000.

    Dove. I love that I caught the piece of bread being picked up.

    A squirrel that kept hiding from me. This shot was all in the shade and the surrounding shrubbery is quite distracting so I had to crop down quite a bit.



    And a Hummingbird that was courageous enough to come down while I was outside on the patio. Cropped down about 1/4 of the frame. It is tough to get a good focus lock on such a flighty little bird.

    Thanks.

    The squirrel is a ghost squerrel ;-)

    I actually removed the image, but forgot to remove the wording. Opps.

    I like the last two hummingbird shots. To get a good image with manual focus is a tough one. I'm still trying.
    Just got this lens and its matched multiplier. Lotta love for this lens out there...curious to see how well it does.

    It is a pleasant lens. Very light for its range.

    Not a true Macro lens, but it gets pretty close up.
