Perhaps I should consider giving up Leica as it is making products that 'normal' photographers like ...... I'm far more comfortable fighting a losing rearguard action against a tide of moans and groans from reviewers who never seem to get the point of Leica  

 

 

Up to you . . but I tell you, it's much easier writing 6000 words about something which doesn't need defending against a tide of moans and groans from reviewers who never seem to get the point of Leica!!

Nice write up in Wired - https://www.wired.com/review/review-leica-cl/ - the reviewer does bemoan the cost, but at least we're spared Kai's sneering about "the rich"

I did check stock market few minutes ago. I feel "rich".

(watched Kai's video. Hey, he does try to show some enthusiasm).

Interesting that Ingo Cordes used the CL for weddings.  

 

This might surprise one of our Leica Forum 'experts'

I'm using SLs for weddings but it was fun to add the CL (as I do with the Q). The CL doesn't attract attention to guests (and esp. priests) which makes it much easier to get candid shots. The image quality is equal to the SL for my style of reportage but without back button focus, IOS and a 2nd SD card slot the CL will remain an extension to the SL and will not replace it.

.... is there any other form of transport more miserable ????

 

Listen to Randy Newman's "Sail Away," where the survival rate was lower than Ryan Air's but conditions were similar.

No-one seems to have mentioned the availability of the horizontal line when focusing (which the Q has). I guess once more we have a new camera (ie in succession to the M10) without that facility.

Not exactly a review - it doesn't sound like he's had it in his hands. His last paragraph is worth further thought, though. To what extent is the simplicity of phones responsible for their growth in the photo market, rather than the complexity of most modern cameras responsible for driving people away. Think about the box Brownie or the vest pocket Kodak (or the first Leica). None of them involved complex decisions about setup, options to choose between or buttons marked with acronyms: it was a simple linear process to take a photograph.

He obviously likes it, though he seems to have missed the customisation of the Fn button and RH dial button, which bring to the surface some of the features he dislikes having to dive into the menus for.

The CL has a spirit level and grid.

The CL has a spirit level and grid. 

And, unlike the SL (or, IIRC, the TL2), you can have level, grid, histogram and blinkies all on screen at the same time. The wonders of progress.

      This is an old-ish (5 months) review, but IMHO it is worth reading if you are on the fence with regard to purchasing the M10 Monochrom.
      This camera costs a lot of money, but make no mistake:  There is no other camera even remotely like it being made anywhere in the world.

      Hey all,  was curious about how the technical aspects of the Zeiss Biogon lenses ( 25mm or 28mm ) would match up with the CL + adapter. Im between either of those or the TL 23mm Summicron. Main use cases being travel and street photography.
      The image render from the Zeiss seems almost better than the 23mm but worried that it wont perform as well on the CL vs a dedicated lens. 
      Has anyone used both on a CL or T? 
      Thanks in advance.

      My beloved M-E is currently in the hospital in Allendale, NJ, for a corroded sensor replacement.
      The cost of this, as most of you know, is $1,595 + shipping.
      I also had the option to upgrade to the CL (body only) for the same price. The CL offers a host of technological upgrades, better low-light performance, blah, blah, blah. And in full disclosure: I told myself this was the right move to make... that lasted for about an hour.
      The thought of being without this instrument which feels so pure and so aligned with my film photography actually made me nauseous.
      I passed on the CL.
      Here's a pic of "my precious" mounted with the beautiful Canon 50mm f/1.8 (Canon Seranar).
      Carry on.
