I am a floor-level three-shift factory worker by profession. My hobbies are reading, photography and living in peace. Most of my free time I spend at summer cottage which is a winterproof house and should be called our 2nd home instead. I have a family, including two kids, two dogs and five cats.

While I list photography as a hobby, I don't mean I am a good photographer. I just like to use a camera and record a memory of things I see around me. Been doing this since I was 14 years old and I'm not any sort of enthusiast about it. I just like it :)

comment Purchasing a6000: but what lens to buy?
I'm sure you'll be happy with the Sony A6000. This question on the other hand is not a great fit for PhotoSE. A good question is one for which can be given one correct answer. A lens recommendation is not such question. Our chat room is better place to ask this ;)

comment Does Amazon's patent of the photography studio have any meaning for us?
I wonder how would they know if a product photo was taken using a technique they patented. Maybe the photo looks similar, but how would they know? Perhaps I used 9:3 lighting for background/foreground, and used highlight slider in post to turn the background to 255/255/255 white.

comment Why image at 400mm is LARGER THAN DOUBLE of image at 200mm? (according to lens formula)
You can't have the (1/5000) as a constant. When you switch from 50mm focal length to 500mm focal length, you must reduce subject distance from 5000mm to 4550mm. Re-calculate all your values now.
