Felix Kunze tells us of his experience using the extremely rare 13mm f/5.6 Nikkor lens fitted to a Nikon D800 on a shoot for Nikon Owner Magazine.
The location was the prestigious Leander Club at Henley-on-Thames. The Leander Club is one of the world's oldest rowing clubs, a hugely influential piece of British, International and Olympic history. Nestled by the finish line of the Henley Royal Regatta, it also occupies a prime spot next to the only straight stretch of the Thames anywhere. The shoot took place at dawn on a cold November day in 2012.
The whole shoot will be available to read about in issue 41 of Nikon Owner magazine nikonownermagazine.com
