You're probably right, I checked the article again and saw that they said the same (that it was a nikkor lens) - I must have misread as I thought I saw the word "soligor" in there somewhere, but it still doesn't change the fact that it was a 35mm camera, which goes to show (among a whole lot of other important photographs) that the 35mm format isn't as "amateur" as people like to have it - the artists choice of tools vary, not necessarily according to strict technical detail (I mean, people who work in a creative field are primarily creative, not necessarily scientists), but according to what gets the job done the way they like it.
