Leica CL Glamor Shots

Show us what you've got.

My CL has a new 1935 lens to go with the traditional ones.

That is my Favorite 35mm to use on the Leica. I "sold" my Canon 35/2.8 to an RFF'r, and shipped the 35/1.8 instead. He did not complain, and it got rid of the "seller's remorse".

I have both of them, Brian. Both are great lenses to use.

The Classic CL, as she started out in life 35 years ago- born with a 40/2 Summicron-C.

Bought mine from a collector, so it has no scratches, brassing or anything. The meter is unstable however, hence the VC II.

Standard Summicron-C, M-Rokkor 90 next to it. ALong with my M3 it's my favorite Leica.

Not sure whether mine can be considered as glamourous but to me it's just lovely.

The camera belonged to another RFF member. He was supposed to bring an M3 to test how the breech lock from Ken Ruth works with a film camera but brought the CL instead. I thought it funny to see a small camera with a huge lens!

The CL isn't much bigger than the rear cap on the other 50mm f/0.95

As impractical as it might be I bet that duo would be fun to shoot with.

I just sold my CL. Oh well. Some things just have to be moved to allow other things to be "parked in the garage'.

Just re-covered, looks much better than the shabby black that was there before. IMO, of course!

... with Carl Zeiss G Biogon 21/2.8 converted to Leica M mount, handmade leather case in black. At last I can carry the CL camera horizontally! Great!

The lens rear element seems to clear the metering arm by a comfortable distance.

The other with a self-made strap, Kyoto style autumn leaves motif and with the Rollei Sonnar 40mm F2.8 HFT.

Uh oh, was looking for a VC 40/1.4 for my Epson.. The seller also had a CL. I hope this won't work as a gateway to something bigger (and more expensive)!

Pretty bad. Did you have it shipped international surface mail? That's what they typically look like after arriving.

OK, here is mine. Took me 3 hours replacing the fake leather with real leather. The hardest part is trimming the leather to the correct thickness on the edges and trim out the underside for the bends on four corners of the camera.
