Looks great. You can now shoot zebras unnoticed.

Fine, if you are standing among zebras.

This would allow stand in the middle of zebras and shoot the approaching lions without spooking the lions. :)

I'm going to take it to the zebra enclosure at the Nashville Zoo and see if I can get their attention . . . I can hear them commenting, " Hey check out the new guy! Is he white with black stripes or black with white stripes?"

. . . Also helps when you are trying to sell images if they recognize you.

Now you are going to have to watermark all your photos with zebra stripes so they will recognize them as the ones shot with the zebra lens!  :P

So what you are saying is you have matching attire?  ;)

Don't even bother to answer... :)

Only thing is that a two legged zebra is a slow zebra, which = lion's next meal.

But, the two-legged zebra doesn't need to invest in long glass.  Shorter focal lengths will work fine in this case and they wouldn't be needed for very long anyway.

Hmm A masterful job and a unique look. Camo is sort of old looking already.

You can easily sew it on a machine. I redid my 200 1.8 so that it is in just 2 pieces as they got the seams misaligned
