Re: No, not Abbey Road.....

That car appears to have quite a few frilly bits. Did Ford have a Zodiac in the Mk I?

Re: Walking to work....

Two reasons:

1. No places to hide away from the rain. On my walk through the city, most of the sidewalks are covered.

2. The other one is medical. I am suffering from a fairly nasty lung...

Re: Walking to work....

Thanks John. For about 9 months of the year Brisbane has a wonderful, comfortable and warm climate. Then you have the three months of summer! :eek: Hot, humid and extremely uncomfortable. At least...

Re: Baobab Highway

Great photo. I love baobabs. Your photo takes me back to the days of my youth running around northern Ovamboland and Zimbabwe, where the baobabs are huge. The one in Ombalantu can hold about 35...

Walking to work....

On Thursday this week, I decided to make a change to my usual weekly commute into the Brisbane CBD, where I usually get off the train at Central Station and walk down to our offices in the CBD. - I...

Re: One of the problems with the Subaru Forester.....

My Forester at the SS Maheno Wreck on Fraser Island. This photo was taken with the lens and camera which fell out of the boot.

Re: World Game

The Big Issue provides a useful social function. They seem to be well represented at key intersections in the cities of Australia.

Re: One of the problems with the Subaru Forester.....

Oh I do know that. - That's why I bought it. It is one of the very few SUV vehicles that can go where "real" 4x4 vehicles can go. I do have two criticisms:


The lack of a lip at the edge of...

Re: One of the problems with the Subaru Forester.....

During the course of yesterday evening, I managed to remove all the broken glass from the lens and could see that the lens glass appeared to be undamaged. Try as I could, I couldn't remove the...

Re: One of the problems with the Subaru Forester.....

Thanks all. I have tried most of your suggestions for removing the filter, but without much success, although I have managed to remove all the glass particles. The lens doesn't appear to be...

Re: One of the problems with the Subaru Forester.....

It looks like it is only the filter. I am hoping that none of the bits of broken glass has scratched the lens. If so, then I'll only have to buy a new filter and pay for the filter removal and a...

One of the problems with the Subaru Forester.....

..... is that, in order to allow Subaru to place a full-sized spare wheel in the boot, the level of the floor had to be raised. Unfortunately, they forgot to place a lip in front of the back...

Re: 40-150mm Pro

So using the 40-150mm lens with a 1.4TC would have done the job well?

Re: 40-150mm Pro

Would the 12-100mm have been sufficient? Or was the 100-150mm range still necessary?

Re: What to do when your BIGMA dies.

The moorhen had just finished splashing around when I took that photo. Those lines are the drops from the splashing descending.

Re: What to do when your BIGMA dies.

Here are the results of my first attempt at using the Panasonic / Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f4.0-6.3 ASPH lens on my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II. The lighting was typical of mid-winter lighting in...

Re: What to do when your BIGMA dies.

Yes, the AF still works well. The lens is still useable, provided that you accept that the aperture is fully open all of the time.

Re: What to do when your BIGMA dies.

Thanks for that. Looks like I made a good choice. Now to put it to good use. I would never have gone for the 100-300 anyway as I already have an old 4/3 70-300, which works quite well, except for...

Re: What to do when your BIGMA dies.

Aah! Thanks! I was wondering about that. I was going to fiddle around a bit to find out what combination works best. I'll do as you suggested for hand-held shots and switch off both IS systems for...

Re: What to do when your BIGMA dies.

My Bigma must be a particularly good copy. The photos which I get out of it are a lot sharper than I was expecting. The focus was a bit slow on the E-M1, but on the E-M1 Mk II, the lens appears to...
