We're thrilled to say that in general the new look AP seems to have gone down well with readers. Let us know what you think of the new format by emailing me at nigel_atherton@ipcmedia.com.


In photo news this week, Adobe releases their new Creative Cloud Photography Plan; Leica announce that you can now 'test drive' a Lecia M for 24 hours; and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) is calling on seaside wildlife photographers to help build a picture of falling seabird populations.


As Morris Photographic Centre falls by the wayside, and with numbers halving in two years, UK stores are having to fight back. News editor Chris Cheesman investigates: Can Britain's high-street stores survive? Is 'click-and-collect' the key to the future? Read his in-depth report


Online this week, we have a full review of the new Leica T (Type 701). Leica's compact system camera has finally arrived, but how will Leica users feel about the 16.3-million-pixel Leica T (Type 701) and its radical design and handling? We put it to the test


We also have a review by Damien Demonder of the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro lens and Callum McInerney-Riley rounds up six of the best camera bags for compact system cameras

That's all for this week!
