The (positive) effect of (positive) change…

Roughly 100 days ago, I announced a policy change for JAPB. In that post I announced that besides lens reviews and in-depth comparisons, JAPB would also start publishing lens data sheets and walk-arounds. The goal of the policy change was to enable the more rapid publication of new gear articles.

And boy has that move paid off. Even though I’m still alone doing this (hint), and even though I’ve been busy professionally as well as on the family front, I’ve managed to publish 100 new articles since then, including more than 80 lens data sheets.

To celebrate the occasion of the 100th new article in roughly as many days, I’ve yesterday and today published a trio of highly anticipated articles, including:
• A walk-around with the Nippon Kogaku (Nikon F) 24 mm f/2.8
• A walk-around with the Nippon Kogaku (Nikon F) 35 mm f/2.8
• An extended data sheet of the Carl Zeiss Jena 58 mm f/2 Biotar – arguably one of the most significant SLR lenses ever.

You’re welcome to enjoy those articles as well as all the others as well (the data sheets and most new articles are found here).

Simultaneously, I’m apologising in advance that I don’t expect to be able to keep up this pace during November. Not only am I busy professionally, I am also set to defend my doctoral dissertation on the 30th of November, and the final stage preparations will take up a lot of my spare time. See you on the other side.
