View Full Version : My new (used) Leica CL!
I just need to express my enthusiasm! Bit the bullet and called Sherry Krauter. After our talk, I purchased from her a Leica CL and 40mm f2 Rokkor. 6 month warranty, all CLA'd. Great to talk to and she loves the CLs! Maybe by the end of the week my new baby will arrive.
Good for you, Way! Enjoy it.
I'm also waiting for my CL. I'm hoping for end of the week, but most probably it will be here early next week. I allready bought some M39 to M-mount adapters. This will be my first Leica...
There's no other "way", Way ;)
By the way, I want that Rokkor lens, too!
Welcome to the secret order of the Leicaphiles... Now, prepare to see your finances dwindle, and your enjoyment grow!
Congrats !!!! :D I bet you'll love the little CL and the Rokkor :) Let us know how you do with the secret Leica handshake :)
Now I'm better moving on, before Joe reads me praising the dark side ;)
The CL is quite nice, has a terrific finder. I have the 40mm F2 Summicron, also quite sharp.
40mm F2 Summicron Folder:
(Donīt let my M3 here this - but I nearly got one of those before I got the M3) ;)
Thanks for the warm words, folks. I've been using an MP with a 50 summi and 90 cron but for some reason the little CL with its vertical strap lugs seemed to really call out to me. I know I could've bought a new fangled Bessa RxA for a little less money (God knows, I may even cave in and get one when/if the prices go a little lower!) but this little camera is just too cool! Plus I trust Sherry Krauter. Could've gotten it cheaper at several places but Sherry's gone through camera & lens so I know it's going to perform well. Can't wait to load up some tri-x and get snapping! Unfortunately I don't have a film scanner just yet so posting pics will be a problem (all I've got in my gallery is a couple from my Canon 1D2).
if all this leica stuff keeps popping up without 'equal time' for canon i may have to start deleting threads!!!
and oscar i may have to ban you for a month if you keep venturing over to the dark side.
damn that gene and cl sale, you've never been the same since!
Fair's fair, Joe! Consider all the talk about Canon RFs before this! :)
yeah, but that was mostly me!
LOL ! Joe, don't screw it up ;) After all, we WANT affordable Canon prices, don't we ? ;)
