ummmm Joe, is this the proverbial "deja vu all over again"?
Perhaps a brief chronology of you and the Minolta CLE affliction/situation might be of interest to newer members here.
Feel free to go back; way, way back. ;D

BTW that image above me looks awfully familiar and now I know why.

Seems like an interesting mix and match pair to me....


I must add that I have been shooting the CLE with the 0.95 for several
weeks now with no issues at all.... gotta do the scale focus bit, tho... since the one window of the RF is totally blocked by the lens body.

Enjoy all.

How do you attach pictures in this forum that they appear large?

Re attachments, are you linking to pictures on an upload site such as flickr or pbase? Just looking at the properties of your attachement, this doesnt seem to be the case? I use flickr and have no problems in posting larger pics.

I am lucky enough to have all three lenses. It is a great camera. I am rediscovering it all over again.

I also collect vintage Omega watches hence the 1965 Speedmaster in the photo.

I guess the unifying theme is outmoded technology. Film, mechanical watches and fountain pens. I'm such a luddite

Yes, It's the original CLE grip.

And Bob, relax, :-). You will receive your CLE in a few days. This one is another one I have.

I wasn't worried, just curious.

Which other grips will fit on the CLE? I am finding the ZI grip on my ZI is really helpful since I always carry the camera in one hand with no strap. I imagine something like that on the CLE would be helpful.

DearBob,

As I know, our dear Joe (back alley) modified his ZI grip to fit on a CLE. Can't find the thread discussing it.

the zi grip fits perfectly.
the opening on the bottom to access the film rewind button needs to be enlarged.
i used a knife and then some sandpaper.


check out the very first photo in this thread.

Joe: Will the Bessa grip fit? It is cheaper. I never flinch when buying film or glass. It is only when it comes to buying things like lens hoods or grips that I realize I just want functionality.

BTW, the ZI grip is a permanent fixture so I wouldn't try swapping it from one body to another.

Bob, I use the ZI grip myself too. For me, its a cheaper alternative then to hunt for the original grip on ebay. A friend who has the original grip commented that the ZI grip looks better. I did not modify the access to the film rewind as my mobile phone has one of those stylus, which allows me to reach the hidden button
