    Nice shots. Not what lens I would have thought of for these kinds of shots, but they turned out nice.

    I assume you have some sort of backdrop/photobooth.

    Hi Davect01, i use beercan for these shots because backdrops have some drawings and i need the beercan's good bokeh :D ;)
    I have only 3 backdrop/photobooth, 1 yellow, 1 green and 1 white....
    4 last shots are taken with a white background, and changed with photoshop

    ;)

    Beercan intoxication.

    Seeing I didn't have a longish zoom lens for the A7 and already had the LA-EA4 (Got it for free as a redemption offer) I picked up a 70-210 F4 from ebay for $80, bloody bargain. Lens is in near perfect condition and come with original caps, hood and box. Looks nice on the A7 although at first felt a little unbalanced. I screwed on the base of my L bracket and it felt much better. I think it just may be it's been awhile since I handle a largish lens. This will cover my long zoom needs nicely.

    Eastern Water Dragon

    Took the new (too me) Beercan for a walk down the river for a test run. The warm weather has the Water Dragons active.

    This adult female sat up on a log for me and seemed to be as much intrigued with me as I was with her. She's a good 2 foot long.

    Found one at a local camera shop. Got it and an "Exxon" Maxum 50 f1.7 for $149.00. Nice but heavy.

    There is also 70-210 3.5-4.5 at half size, but Kurt Munger review wasn't very good at 70mm. Again beercan is lighter then FE 70-200 f4.
