Got this a few months back from KEH for cheap because it has a broken meter. Also picked up the relatively inexpensive m-rokkor 40mm. People seem surprised to find out that you can buy a Leica outfit for way less than a grand.

Shown next to a 50mm Hasselblad lens for scale.

I haven't used my Hassy much since getting the CL!

My CL

I've found it after a long watch over the bay.
I've received it with the summicron (and a hood stuck, which I removed at last...).
Now She's in good company!
Summicron 90c and Jupiter 8

My Leica CL Combination

My Leica CL is finally complete: I managed to get the camera locally at a very good price. I've had some problems with the light meter, but I think it may be fine now. The camera is encased in a Zhou half-case--which I wasn't sure about before receiving it, but really like it now. I've attached a Domke strap (740-6BK), with rubber woven into the underside of the strap, mounted to one side of the camera as the original designers at Leica intended.

I have a Zeiss 35mm f/2 ZM lens (not shown) and a Zeiss 50mm f/2 ZM lens--which took me many months to buy due to the problems in Japan with production since the earthquake. Both of those lenses use the same B&W 43mm filters and lens hood. On the camera is a Leica 90mm Elmarit-M f/2.8 lens (made in Germany) with a B&W 49mm filter. It was quite an adventure buying that lens at an excellent price.

The final touch is a Voigtlander viewfinder on top for the 90mm lens. I think it adds extra coolness to the look. I just bought that from Camera Quest. I ordered it on a Saturday morning, and Stephen Gandy shipped it that day from California and it arrived at my apartment in Milan a few days later.

Altogether I think it's a slick looking set up

Here's a shot of my Leitz Minolta CL fitted with a Canon Serenar 50mm f1.8, Ilford Hood and a Gordy Strap.

This is my second CL. Sold the 1st one and instantly regretted it. Perfect companion to my M8 and beginning to takeover as my main shooter.

I like the CL so much, I have two of them. The CL is a nice platform for a wide angle lens like the CV21, and with the compact, fast CV40, it's a great general and nighttime combo.

The CL is a beautiful little camera. Gotta get one some day.

Right after I satisfy the GAS monkey on my back that is on the hunt for a 35 Summicron v.IV...

Nice! The Summitar is highly underrated and collapses fine on the CL.

Thanks, I did not know if it was safe to collapse into the CL.
I am thankful for this place and all of the knowledge that is here.

Hardly a "glamour" shot when its on the dining table. But its quickly become one of my favorite cameras!

Nice copy of a Leica CL. Mine came with a box and all boxed items. Meter is iffy but that can be fixed by DAG if I decide I need it.

how do you like that grip? seems like a nice addition however i would hate to have to add another piece to the already painful process of changing film in the CL while on the move

It looks like it would block the RF window and so you wouldn't be able to focus. That has happened with quite a few lenses on my CLE - yeah I know it's not the CL, but it is similar in size but with a longer RF baseline.
