November-December 2023 Update


This update briefly lists all the new articles/pages added to JAPB during November and December 2023.

Besides these new articles, JAPB has also been in the midst of a minor restructuring wherein the old ‘gear’ and ‘theory’ sections are being reorganised into three new sections: lenses, technology and business:
• The Lenses section focuses on all those articles that pertain either to detailing lenses, comparing lenses, lens mounts or are otherwise directly related to lenses.
• The section named Technology discusses photographic technology, techniques and some of the underlying theory.
• The Business section gathers together all those JAPB articles that relate to specific companies as well as the overall logic behind decisions to manufacture (or not) a specific lens.
