The M2 + goggled Summaron is a nice combo; I recently got an f/2.8 Summaron expressly for my M2, as otherwise the 35mm framelines are difficult for me to see. I really like the M2's 50mm framelines, so to be able to cram a 35mm view into them is a real treat!

This was lent to me by a very kind friend at work wearing a Minolta 40mm f/2 M-Rokkor.

Er, wait... the camera was wearing the lens. Not the friend.

My CLE with a 19mm Canon

I just received my "new" 19mm Canon lens and viewfinder from Brasil (thank you, Wouter) and here it is, happily married to my CLE. Some black tape and a Mr. Zhou 1/2 case for the M6 completes the package. The Canon viewfinder is excellent, even when wearing my glasses and with the Canon Lens Mount Converter B, all the numbers on the 19mm FL lens line up exactly at 12 o'clock.

I think I saw this 19mm FL lens with its mount converter recently on eBay... It's nice on a CLE.

Yes, the Canon 19mm FL lens pops up on eBay occasionally, but most of the Canon 19mm lenses on eBay are FD, not FL. BIG DIFFERENCE! The FD lenses are retrofocus and huge. They stick out far from the body. The FL lens is a true wide angle (think Super-Angulon), and sits deep inside the body. I'm not even sure if my lens could be safely mounted on a CL or an M5. Does anybody know?

Thanks for the photos and information.
I was going to buy an M4, but the CLE looks way better for shooting.

It's a Perar lens made by MS Optical. Sort of a inhouse made lens and not from a major manufacture.

Made in small quantities, but usually some come up for sale.

One on Ebay in silver at $900

I had been looking for an affordable CLE for some time when this one turned up at a price I couldn't resist. So I decided that maybe I can live with the lizard skin ...

It arrived today from Copenhagen, Denmark just in time to meet a wonderful Nokton 40/1.4 from Oregon, U.S.A. (thanks Ellen!). What a perfect combo!

Does anyone know if some CLE's had this kind of skin originally? It wasn't changed by me and it looks old and worn.

I hope someone in the know chimes in on this one.
My first thought was: Sultan of Brunei edition, CLE-style ;-)

Greetings, Ljós

My thought was that I'd seen a photo of a similarly clad Minolta SLR at The Rokkor Files (http://www.rokkorfiles.com/XD11.html) but when I checked it out it was a CameraLeather (http://www.cameraleather.com/) "lizard skin" recover.

What about this for comparison?

Thanks for the photos, Scrambler. Looks very similar to my CLE except for the anniversary logo. I wonder if it could have fallen off.

What a CLE with 35mm Lux ASPH looks like. Only shot one roll with it but it turned out quite well. Like the compactness and balance in the hand, too.
