It is a great honour for me to be able to introduce myself to you as the new Editor of Amateur Photographer.  Long-term readers may recognise my name as a former technique and features editor of AP, and I look forward to maintaining, and building upon, AP's world-renowned reputation for excellence, and will endeavour to continue to seek out the the very best that our hobby has to offer, whether it be the latest equipment or the most inspirational photography.

In the news this week, Olympus says it has improved the AF operation of its flagship OM-D E-M1 via a new firmware update.

In business news Leica says that it has completed its takeover of Swiss camera-maker Sinar, a move which gives the company 'a complete product portfolio'.

It's happy birthday to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, which will celebrate 50 years when it opens for entries on 9 December.

Finally, we bid farewell to Saul Leiter, one of the pioneers of colour photography, who passed away this week.

Nigel Atherton, Editor

Loch in scotland

Having spent last Thursday afternoon in the garrulous company of not one but four editors of AP, one present and three past, today I feel the need to be quiet and contemplative. The serene picture of Loch Leven by kenwil fits the bill perfectly. How I wish I were there. Thank you for a lovely image, Ken.
