Nikon’s Holy Grail

The 13mm is Nikon’s greatest lens. It is Nikon’s greatest lens because not only is it big and supremely expensive, it is Nikon’s, and perhaps photography’s, greatest lens because it lets us make photographs we can make no other way.

The Nikon 13mm is the world’s widest non-distorting professional SLR lens ever made, by anyone, in any format. It allows us to get closer to our subjects, stretch distances and create images from perspectives otherwise unimaginable.

Forget about ever seeing one; only about 350 were made, and only to special order. That means less than one out of every 100,000 lenses Nikon has ever made is a 13mm. Forget about finding one anyplace other thanAeBay, where they turn up a couple of times a year in various places around the world.

Best Pictures of the Noughties

Senegalese children run as locusts spread in the capital Dakar September 1, 2004. Only a military-style operation with bases across West Africa can stop the worst locust invasion for 15 years, Senegal’s President Abdoulaye Wade said on Tuesday as the insects swept into his capital. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) warned last week that the locust swarms infesting countries from Mauritania to Chad could develop into a full-scale plague without additional foreign aid.

English Heritage Claims Copyright on Stonehenge

The outfit which appropriates all the best bits of England then charges us Englishmen to get in and see them has been pointing out to photo libraries and owners of image banks that it owns Stonehenge so it should get a cut of any sales made of a picture of the iconic stones. The fotoLibra photo library posted a letter it had received from English Heritage on its blog. In it the organisation says that it, and only it has the right to use images of the six thousand year-old monument for commercial purposes.

"Please be aware that any images of Stonehenge can not be used for any commercial interest," it wrote. "All commercial interest to sell images must be directed to English Heritage." The blogger wonders if there can be "any law that states that it is illegal to use images of Stonehenge for any commercial interest?" Asks: "If an image of Stonehenge is so used, how could they possibly police the usage?" he had a a quick browse through a number of rights-managed and royalty-free online picture libraries and came up with list of half a dozen picture libraries owning hundreds of picture of Stonehenge.
