Unreal how they camouflage themselves so well.

And Im envious of you seeing them as I have travelled most parts of Australia and kept a look out for them in the places that they are known to frequent ...but never any luck of ever seeing one in the wild! ...MAybe Im just not looking hard enough :)

If you're ever in Sydney I have (currently) 5 pairs nearby. (I suspect 7 pairs, I have lost track of 2 pairs or they have died).
Early November is good....

No worries. With so many never miss at least seeing a pair.

I just had a 7RIII in may hands and I'm not sure the AF holds up. My buddy has now sold most of his Oly MkII's and has now the Sony 7RIII and the 100-400 so I will see. In the small amount of shooting I did with it I can say I'm not ready for the small viewfinder and looking at a screen.. No matter how good or advanced it is. It destroy's the way I shoot. all but imposable to see exactly where focus is in minute detail on faces and eyes. we will see. I can tell you the sensor is quite good..but is everything else rapped around it. cropping on the 7RIII is now a moot point. makes the 7DII look un-crop-able

well for what its worth my fuji xt-20 AF ability is not a patch on my 5dsr with the 100-400. Admittedly I have the xf55-200 f3.8-4.5 on the xt-20 which is a relatively slow Af lens in Fuji's lineup but that aside it just didnt even come close. The higher level Canon Nikon DSLR's AF still kill mirrorless in my book. But for sure the gap is closing and Im really keen to tryout the new Fuji H1 AF with fuji's 100-400f4-f5.6 . I think that will be a combo that will really close the gap with the big boys re AF capabilities such as speed of AF acquisition /lock , AF tracking and shutter lag

That does seem to match what I've seen others report; impressive on paper, but the mirrorless AF systems aren't yet on a par with the DSLRs yet. I suspect it'll happen eventually.

Some very good sensors indeed though.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

I've seen one in Montmorency (where I live ) so they are around in Melbourne north east. They are hard to spot though.

I agree....it's nuts.

In fact, I don't know how some of the horses don't go down. That is a heck of a rough sport. Seems like the rules are a little....loose.

Great pix, Clipper.

The rules are actually very strict. The horses do what they would do in a wild environment - horsing around that is. Polo takes advantage of the natural horse behavior. The riders are brave in my book. If they go off the horse, it's going to hurt a lot.

Cheers.
