This week we've seen more big news from the Sony camp, as the Sony Alpha 77 II arrives. It's faster than the Alpha 77, it boasts better image quality, and it's got built-in wi-fi, but has Sony done enough to make it a compelling upgrade? We take a closer look in our first impressions review.

We've also seen the Sony World Photography Awards announce its winners. This year's entries are better than ever, and it's remarkable to see the strength and diversity in contemporary professional photography. See the overall winner here, and then take a closer look at some of the winning images from each of the professional categories.

Elsewhere, there's new firmware for the Fujifilm X-E2 to lend it some features of the X-T1, a Northumberland photography competition announcing its winners, and a £1.3 million comeback for Ilford Galerie photo paper.

That's all for this week.
