And is this the FIRST time that Nikon has claimed credit where no credit
was due?  <yeah, yeah, yeah, large grinny face emoticon for Roger>

I doubt if a pro in Cuba in '61 would have had a Nikon, in any event,
though such is possible.  But Nikon didn't really get into professional use
until the F came out, and that was a new, new, new camera in '61.

The article said, "Leica".  That's all I know.  Cuba, even without
Communism, is not especially interesting to me, although I suspect it
should be, as it has a rich culture and every Cuban I've met has been a
wonderful and charming person.
