M1963: It's appalling to think of everything these refugees went through, from fleeing their countries on account of the war to falling prey of greedy smugglers - only to arrive in Europe and be treated as they if they were terrorists and criminals.
Hungary, a member state of the EU, is actually under a fascist rule; all member states seem to regard refugees as an embarrassment at best; Denmark passed laws to confiscate the refugees possessions; and they're the subject of prejudice and racism all over Europe.
Yet when I watch the news, all the EU cares about is that Greece and Portugal pay their debts and submit to Herr Schaeuble's whims.
Sometimes I feel ashamed of being an European.
On a more positive note (if there's anything positive about this refugee crisis): this is indeed a great picture. I believe it carries on with the best photojournalistic tradition. Robert Capa and W. Eugene Smith would certainly approve it.

Thank you dccdp!

Yes, its very bad - they have to travel 1000+ km to pass borders illegally, when they could find peace closer, in the neighboring countries like Israel instead. Of course no media coverage of that!
Blame it on Orban, idiot!

FantasticMrFox: Why do the World Press Photo Awards always, always only show misery? I understand it, many of the issues that feature in the news are tragic, but there's also so much good and happiness going on and being featured. WPP really seems to almost exclusively focus on the horror.

I have realized (finally!) how differently we defining, easy, logical or self-explanatory! For me LightRoom was very easy to understand and use from the very beginning. The the layout and workflow is absolutely the way I like! While its very advanced and capable for pro-business use, have the choice for no-nonsense easy-setting for home user and gradually could advance up to any level they want! For me using iPhoto or Photos are sometimes childish, sometime chaotic, and the constant redundancy of file handling makes me very angry and inpatient of some reason. (I believe Picasa even is a much better choice!)
Aperture was much better, but in IMO is no mach to LR or C1! CaptureOne is great, has its own “attitude”, (not so bad)! It would be my second choice for PP.

GodSpeaks: I think they missed the boat here. Tenba says these are for mirrorless cameras. So what are the primary traits of mirrorless? Small and light. Yet these bags are designed to carry a camera and multiple lenses, tripods and large tablets. None of which meets the small and light criteria.

How about a smaller bag(s) that could carry a mirrorless camera with lens attached and one additional lens. No tripods or tablets. In other words, keep it small and light. A switch 4 or 5 pehaps?

I already have too many bags that can carry multiple cameras/lenses that I no longer use because they are too big and cumbersome.

Exactly! Thanks!

To many of the same type of hype!
I love to see smaller camera bags with holster type action, where you can slide in your camera with a super-zoom without detach the lens. Mirror-less is more vulnerable for lens change than DSLR’s. Than maybe the bag dimensions could rather extend vertically, of course than would look less like a purse too! :-))

scrup: I see a lot of complaints about it not being released in the US.
Guess its mostly old folks who don't know how to use the internet and order from Ebay or don't trust that the camera will last for more than a year and somehow need a local warranty.

Just joking! Check my gears! :-))))

lacix: I don't really understand the GM5 vs. RX100 III comparison based on pocketability, I had/have both. When I owned the RX100 II yes, I could put it in my jeans pocket, but it was very heavy tight and uncomfortable. Some of my jackets have bigger pockets, but than now I can put my GM5 w. kit in it that too. So? Call it pocketable? C’mon! What kind of clothing you guys generally wearing? “Sony fit?”:-)))
I have a nice set, the GM5 with 14-140mm (28-280mm) lens on it, in a small “case logic” bag. Great versatile combo, only 476g (1.05lb)! It’s no other kits comes close to that, comparing/including size, weight, IQ or versatility!

Higher ISO sensor scores of GM5 makes up the difference of the faster lens!

Slow focusing and not very effective RX100 stabilizer makes it even worst! I used it and I know it!
You are full of your self! Yes?
