Just got the E-M1 back from repair and decided to play with the Bigma....

Just got my E-M1 back from repair. -> One of the lugs that hold the camera strap to the camera had come loose. - Fortunately the camera was in a carrying case. And the rubber grip at the back had become unglued. - This seems to be a common fault with Olympus. The rubber grip on my E-300, E-3 and XZ-2 have all become unglued over the years. So, while the warranty was still valid, I decided that a repair was in order.

This afternoon, the rainbow lorikeets were making one hell of a racket. I dug out the Bigma, fitted it to the E-M1 via an MMF-3 adaptor and went out to see what I could catch. The Bigma being a 50-500mm lens, I have found that the best way to set the camera up is to set the focus to a single point, the exposure to 1/1000s shutter speed priority and then let the camera do the rest through a combination of setting the aperture and/or varying the ISO.

Today was unfortunately more than a bit overcast and rainy. I had very few keepers. This was the best of a bad lot:

Very colourful, wish we had those here, although we were visited by a flock of Green Parakeets two years ago.
There were about 200 in our tree, the news said they had come from London, where, I understand, there are such colonies.
The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.
