    Very English architecture although most English bungalows have either been demolished to make way for two storey homes or at least have their roof space converted to provide extra accommodation. Both the style and the name were borrowed from India. I believe that this type pf accommodation was much favoured by English ten bob(shilling) Poms after the second world war. I know that my sister and her family were eventually housed in a similar bungalow as ten bob Poms in the early sixties!

    I wonder if this was public housing stock from the late-’50s or early ’60s; we had a wonderful public housing authority called the South Australian Housing Trust (an Australian first, established in 1936 by a conservative state government), and now but a mere shadow of its 1930s-and-later self; a Labor government saw fit to rename it Housing SA a decade ago (so corporate), but so fitting because of the removal of“Trust” from its moniker.

    I live in a HSA red-brick maisonette aka semi originally built for the “Pom Invasion” in the ’50s or ’60s, and which is several kilometres closer to Adelaide city. We are still relatively Anglophilic—did you know that the turnout for the Beatles’ 1964 arrival in SA was their biggest ever? One-third of the state’s population was estimated to have turned out as 300,000 people lined the streets from the airport to North Terrace and the South Australian Hotel, long since demolished.

    Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be.

    My sister and her family entered Oz via Sydney having travelled there on the SS Canberra. She died some years ago, but we still have two nephews in Oz, one in Brisbane and a very successful businessman, the other in Tasmania and he is now a huge lumberjack! My wife and I came over to do a six week tour of Australia via mainly Quantas some years ago and we enjoyed visiting both of them. We also thoroughly enjoyed Australia, it is a great country and very photogenic! The boys sometimes visit us whenever they travel to the UK.
    I guessed that your bungalow images were taken in Adelaide...........the colour of the grass in the second image gave me the clue! Adelaide is more english than England!

    Well it used to be the most Brit state (no convicts, dontcha know!). We were once the ‘poshest’ state in pronunciation (thirty years ago perhaps); I was upbraided by a lady friend from NSW when I made fun of her accent—“Well at least we don’t talk like a bunch o’ pommy poofters” she snapped. TV, movies and other media ensure that most young South Australians now exhibit a bit of Valley Girl, amongst other influences. Words like ‘dance’ are more likely to be pronounced with a much shorter A (almost an E sound—‘dence?’) rather than the elongated ‘dahnce’ of yesteryear (I still talk like this), and the uninflected ‘here’ of yore is now mostly ‘heeyah’. I even saw ‘here’ written on a railway station wall as ‘heah’, but that was at Salisbury, rubbish demographically …

    The location of the house and its very green grass is on Marion Road at South Plympton.

    Even Plympton in itself had English roots as the original Plympton is on the outskirts of Plymouth in Devon, England! I made a brief visit to Adelaide on the way to Kangaroo Island during my Oz tour. I really liked Kangaroo Island by the way! the Sea Lions and Koala's were my favourites and the scenery just magnificent!

    Absolutely great shot - with a great lens. And even the "ancient" EM1 shines with that lens

    Nothing wrong with the EM1 - as long as you don't use it in the (semi-)dark.

    Well, honestly I'm mighty pleased so far with my copy and its output.
    As said before, and mentioned first by anGy, the shorter end seems to be its strongest asset.
    However, I do realise holding and taming 300-400mm of super telelens is no small feat and even aided by my EM1's IBIS I found it requires some serious concentration.
    Not to mention the fatigue that starts to set in after a while.
    Anyway, perhaps I should drink even less coffee and start polishing my technique or simple use a tripod ...

    Kind regards.

    After sunset in Veysonnaz, vue sur le Haut-de-Cry et les Muverans.

    Veysonnaz is a very small mountain and ski ressort in the Swiss Alps, but it offers a superb view.

    This was shot with the OMD E-m5II and the m.Zuiko 12-40mm F2.8 @ 21mm and is a stitch of 8 pictures

    I modified (reframed) that picture and now it has disappeared, so here is the new version.

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Not tack sharp, but I like the green shine here ...


    grrr, the 300 - 400mm range is really so-so, could it be the af not being precise ? or ibis?

    Most telephoto zooms seem to be superior at shorter focal lengths; I think the focal range was probably chosen (and designed for) because the nomenclature is neat and tidy (4x) and for where it fits into the range of lenses offered, but a 100–250 or 100–300 may have not compromised quality so much at the long end—if indeed that is the case. And it may also have been a bit smaller, lighter, and brighter.

    Focus appears to be right on to me. BTW, what software do you process RAW files with?

    Thanks Bart, I like the image.
    For my eyes the green has a psychedelic touch to it.
    BTW, which stabilization are you using?
    Also, how large is your focus patch?
    With best regards, K-H.

    K-H, it's in-camara (IBIS) stabilisation and small focus patch.

    Kind regards.

    Hi there Ian, I'm using C1P9 and focus is perhaps, if at all, just slightly off.
    Viewing the image at 100% shows the lack of detail.

    All the best.

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Stunning Bart. I am assuming that this was still taken using the Panaleica 100-400?

    I am wondering if one of your earlier comments about the wide end producing better results on the E-M1 has something to do with IBIS not being effective at longer focal lengths? My understanding is that the dual IBIS and lens stabiliser which the 100-400 has, does not work with the E-M1, but it does with the Panasonic GX8? Similarly, the Oly 300F4 using a similar dual stabilisation works on the E-M1 but not on the Panasonic GX8!

    I have changed my pre-order back to a Panaleica 100-400 having viewed and handled both lenses at a local Pro camera show. I would be prepared to trade one of my E-M1 bodies for a new Panasonic body to permit the lens to have full functionality if this is indeed the case.
    Cheers, Dave

    Thanks, Dave. Yes, this is shot with the 100-400.
    As for the weaker long end, the jury is still out, but there's definitely a pattern emerging ...
    But I'm not regretting my decision, after all a 100-400 zoom is a powerful tool and this PL really is a fine lens.

    As for stabilisation effectiveness, difficult to tell if the results would be substantially better with the GX8 without proper testing.
    But honestly I doubt it very much. Still, if time permits I'll run some tests on a tripod with all stabilisation switched off.
    Promised ...

    Kind regards.

    This is actually one of the most restricting issues I do have with m43, that full functionality is not guaranteed nor given when you combine equipment of different vendors. Actually this was one of the main goals of 43 and if I remember right also of m43. But we are not only far away from that, the gap is even going to increase more over time.

    I cannot understand why I am forced to buy a Pana GX8 in order to get full image stabilization with a lens like the 100-400 or similar need a Oly body for optimal IS with the 4/300. This is a nightmare and definitely sucks!

    Sucks so much that I am even considering leaving this platform .... one of the reasons I have so far not bought any of these lenses and have kept quiet so far.

    I hear you... but there are worse things in life than owning a GX8
