  1. My antique Digilux 2 from 2004 still works perfectly ! 🙂 Same as for my first digital and tiny Canon Ixus 40 (credit card format) bought in 2005... Guytou
  2. 2 years ago I sold my X Vario and bought a used CL + 18-56 mm + 18 mm set + some accessories. Everything was in new condition, not used and for a total price of 2500 €. It was a very good deal and I am obviously very satisfied with this beautiful material. But I think if the Sigma 18-50 had existed at the time, I would have bought it with a bare CL. I also have a Sigma macro Art 2,8-105 DG DN which is really excellent. It is undeniable that Sigma today makes very good optics at realistic prices. Guytou
  3. I have a few digital devices. The oldest are a Leica Digilux 2 from 2004 and a Canon Ixus 40 from 2005. They remained in very good aesthetic condition and still function perfectly. I will probably be dead before them ... ☺️ Guytou
  4. This cover is simply intended for storing the flash when not in use. It is in soft black fabric. Guytou
  5. Hello cpclee, No problem, the SF 24D works perfectly in TTL with the CL. Whether mounted on the shoe or deported with the Nikon SC-28 or even SC-17 cable (I put the latter on sale because it duplicates me.) The CL instruction manual also specifies that TTL flash metering is available with almost all Leica flash models, except the SF 20. (See page 95 of the CL Owner's Manual.) The small illuminated LCD screen of the flash then indicates the distance in meters of the range of the flash and the diaphragm set on the CL. I can adjust exposure compensation either on the body or on the flash. It is faster with a dial of the CL. Exposure compensation can also be obtained on the flash up to + or - 3 stops in 1/3 EV increments. This little flash is really excellent, its size goes perfectly with that of the CL and it comes with two reflectors (GA or TV) as well as a small soft fabric cover. It is easy to deport with these Nikon cables for indirect lighting and its price on occasion is interesting. Guytou
  6. Some find that this 18mm is not good ... It might not be as sharp as the 23 or 35 in the corners and at full aperture but it's still a good lens. I own the 18-56 and the 18 and I find that the latter is doing quite well. We can also see many images of this TL18 mm with a Flickr search and some are at the opening f. 2.8 : Guytou
  7. I recently bought a like-new SF 24 for a great price. This flash is very practical, goes very well with the CL and provides excellent results. I also found a Nikon SC-28 cord which allows the flash to be deported while retaining the TTL measurement. Guytou
  8. I also use the index for the left wheel on my CL equipped with the thumb rest. My fingers are flexible and I even sometimes manipulate this left wheel with the end of my thumb, the first phalage still remaining on the thumb rest. But now I leave the screen off and only use the viewfinder. If I want to see a photo, press the FN key programmed for EVF-LCD and then go back to EVF alone. The battery is happy ! Guytou
  9. Our friend says he wants this : "...I would prefer something small which can be covered with the original Leica cap, or a hood that come with its own cap..." Guytou
  10. There is an entry for the TL 18mm sun visor at the bottom of page 3. Personally, I use this one : https://buy.geni.us/Proxy.ashx?TSID=129101&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.fr%2FPare-soleil-objectif-dappareil-nettoyage-dobjectif%2Fdp%2FB06XC37NTV&dtb=1 Guytou
  11. Hello JoshuaRothman, On another post, a forumer interested in buying the TL 18mm wanted to see photos taken with it, especially at the opening f. 2.8. Just do a search on Flick to see many images and several are made at this full opening : Personally, I find that this optic is doing very well ... Guytou
