Here is my review: It is a solid well built camera. The kit 18-56 lens delivers some great results. The controls are easy to learn. In the 3 weeks that I have had it, I have been able to quickly change the settings that I use the most. I typically shoot in aperture priority. Changing ISO and the Aperture is all done with the right wheel. I can be looking through the viewfinder and make adjustments to get the settings I want. I have not seriously tested the camera in low light situations yet. I want to see how it performs at higher ISO settings (800 / 1600 etc). On the whole, I am happy with the purchase. I just wish the 11-23 had been available when I bought the camera. That lens would have been better suited for me.

I didn’t get the adapter from photo West in Rancho Mirage California. I emailed them today politely asking them if I could get a free one.

The salesman at Houston Camera Exchange was unaware of the promotion. He had to check on it when I mentioned it to him. He said I was right and I got the adapter. I consider the adapter like the free gold fish at the school carnival. Yes the adapter is free. Now I need to go buy some M mount lenses to be able to use it.

Not my experience. With proper exposure and postprocessing 3200 is without any problem, 6400 still very good.

I alerted the store in Rancho Mirage and I now have the adapter on the way. They apologized for the oversight.

Needed an advice. I presently shoot with a Leica M262, a Leica Q and a Sony A73. Will adding a CL make more sense or a Sony A7R3? Price points are similar. I possess lenses for both. I went thru some reviews and they all suggested at this price point Sony makes more sense. I have tried a Sony but CL I have not been able to lay my hands on as dealer in my country doesn’t have a demo body.

I'm not sure what the CL would add to your photography, given that you have 3 excellent (and small) cameras already.

      LEICA APO-MACRO-ELMARIT-TL 60 f/2.8, silver - (#4629438) is in great condition. I rate it cosmetically a (90%) but optically 100%. The focus is smooth, the autofocus and aperture function properly, and the glass is clean and clear with no haze, marks, or fungs, scratches. This lens includes a Leica lens pouch, a Leicalens hood , front & rear caps, and the original instructions & box(full factory set)
      I'm the owner from new. The lens was bought new at the Leica store.
      Payment: paypal or bank tansfer directly to my bank

      It's not only macro lens. It's excellent for portrait and mid telefoto (fov=90 mm with CL/TL camera)

      I purchased a Q end of last year, liked it so much that I sold my Nikon DSLR, Lumix FZ-2500 and Fuji XE-T3. I then purchased the CL with the 18-56mm lens a few months later. Now with adapters to use my Rokinon wide-angles, and 7 Artisan lenses I find myself using the Leica CL way more than the Q.  There's no doubt that the IQ of photos from the Q, a full-frame camera, are better than the Leica CL, t's a fantastic camera and lens with macro capability.. But I'm thinking of selling it add more lenses for the CL (or at least pay it off 😎).   Anyone else face this situation?    BTW, with all that's going on in the world at this time, I'm fully aware that this is no big deal, but it keeps my mind off the other cataclysmic issues  we're experiencing.  All opinions welcome, any recommendation for lenses?...thanks.  I am currently waiting for arrival of the TTArtisan 35mm F1.4 lens to ship.  Be Well everyone.

      Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you know I published a review of the TTArtisan 50mm 0.95 lens and I think the findings might be interesting for you.
      I hope you enjoy the reading!

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently working on a project to once and for all fix the analogue Leica CL's broken take up spool problem, by 3D printing them. 
      I've ran a roll through mine with version 2 of the spool and it works pretty good, but i'm working on version 3 which should be better still - I got the dimensions slightly wrong on this one - it's too short.
      How many of you CL owners would be interested in buying such an item? They'd cost around £20 and be sold through eBay all said and done, and I'd make a video showing how to take apart the CL and install them, as well as reassembly - International shipping would happen too through the eBay GSP as I'm UK based.
      The attached photo is version 2 and not by any means the final version as this is still in very early development, but the quality of the ones that go on sale will be much higher. This one was printed by a friend of mine, but I'm soon going to acquire my own printer and make them much better.
      I know also that this doesn't look anything like the original, but when I copied the original part dimension for dimension, curve by curve, it didn't work and suffered the same problems as the original.. immediately. Thus I simplified it and made it more "3D Printer friendly."
      Thanks
      Tom
