To shoot his Pulitzer prize winning photograph Huynh Cong 'Nick Ut' used the Leica M-2 body with the serial number 1923019 with a 35mm Summicron lens, serial number 1923019. It had not been AP's practice in 1972 to equip staff photographers with the German-made Leitz (Leica) cameras and lenses. Nikon equipment was the standard AP issue. However, every staff photographer of AP in Vietnam, eventually used his "own Leica" equipment, following the example of Horst Faas, who arrived in Vietnam in June 1962 with his "own" Leica equipment coming from an assignment in Algeria.
