In product news, Leica has announced that its M model - first unveiled at Photokina way back in 2012 - is now ‘readily available' from UK retailers after a shortage of the camera forced the firm to step up production.

Olympus is to add two more micro four thirds lenses to its M.Zuiko Pro series - a wideangle zoom and a super-telephoto.

Sony has unveiled the Alpha 6000, featuring an AF speed of ‘0.06sec' - trumpeted as the ‘world's fastest' for cameras with an APS-C-sized imaging sensor. You can read our first look here and that for the Alpha 500 here.

Canon has unveiled its new entry-level EOS 1200D DSLR, which the company boasts has the ‘premium' look and feel of the EOS 700D. Meanwhile, its revamped GX-1 mark II its optical viewfiinder comes shorn of its optical viewfinder. Read our initial thoughts on it here.

Elswhere, there's been some very good news in that the Fox Talbot archive - for so long threatened with being bought by an overseas collector - has been saved for the nation.

Ok, we're almost done except that at this point I like to say keep you eye out for the final edition of Amateur Photographer Advanced Photography Skills which is out next week.

Finally, there's been a bit of a food fracas in France of late. It was reported that top chef Gilles Goujon and Alexandre Gauthier said they would ban diners from photographing their food. Now, Caroline Kenyon, director of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year - has urged them to embrace food photography saying that the two chefs are being complimented by their customers, and that a ban was a step too far. What do you think – is it a case of shoot first, hors d'oeurves later?
