The solution was to shoot indoors, but also to find some suitably different aspects to what may be fine subjects on blue sky days, but are rather boring in overcast conditions. So I went looking for some alternative ideas.

On the day I used an Olympus E-M1 to travel light, and also to take advantage of the In-Body Image Stabilization (ISIS). I can handhold this remarkable camera down to about half a second, although I usually try to keep to above ΒΌ second at 12mm (24mm equiv). So no tripod needed.

Here are some shots taken in the QV Building all hand held, using a railing where possible to steady the shot.

Georgia at f/1.4 https://www.gbphoto.com.au/blog/2014/8/Georgia85 I tested the 85mm f/1.4G with warranty serviced Nikon D800. It appears to focus more accurately now. The D800 has been a fiend to focus accurately with f/1.4 lenses. Here's hoping the D810 does a better job.
