Almost perfection ....

I love the CL as well. However, there is one thing that really annoys me; when the viewfinder gets the slightest bit dirty it fails to change automatically from LCD to EVF, always reverting to EVF. This seems to happen at least once every time I take it out.

I do wear specs and have tried various settings but it doesn’t seem to make any difference.

All in all the camera, together with the three zones is a great travel package; for the last ten days I’ve been in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and it’s covered everything I needed.

On the SL there is, I think, an EVF “auto on” sensitivity setting. Perhaps there is such a setting for the CL as well?

There is an "auto" setting on the CL as well. However, when the viewfinder gets the slightest bit of dirt on it, it reverts to EVF. I also have the SL and have never had a problem with it. I find it annoying on the CL but no big deal.

We spoke about it during Saturday. It is a known issue. It doesn't bother me, as I have always been anal about keeping my ocular clean. The sensor is in the little window at the top. Use disposable microbrushes to clean it.

I think most of the problems arise from the difficulty of cleaning it by a conventional microfiber cloth.

I am smitten also. My CL just arrived today.

 

The improved AF and low light abilities give the zooms a whole new extended use. I can finally zoom the 18-56 in and the AF will work in low light. The AF is so much quicker than the T & even TL2. And that viewfinder... Wow!

 

Great job Leica.

I like your case because you can see the red dot and the beautiful stitching, however my case has the magnetic bottom which opens to change out the SD card and or battery. To me that would be the perfect rig, with it all.

      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.

      After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ? 
       
      A little history :
      - 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
      - 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
      - 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
      - 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens  
      Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all ! 
      We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7. 
       
      Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
      None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS. 
      No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8. 
      No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm. 
      These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses. 
       
      So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses  ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But  no new lens = death of the system. 
      Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade. 
       
      So what do you think about this situation ?

      My [almost] two year old Tekiac Stealthcover’s tripod mounts popped out - yes, both of them. And the plastic started cracking around the tripod mounts, to boot.
      Thinking it’s time to update it anyway I went to LFI (where I first got it from) but lo and behold, it’s not there anymore.
      A quick visit to the Tekiac website and wouldn’t ya know it, it’s no longer in production.
      Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative? Really only need it to do the three things the Stealthcover did well:
      Have a grip Cover the logo Have a tripod mount Bonus points if it comes in black 🤟
      Thanks!

      Recently bought CL as I used leicas many years ago as a prof photographer - now retired.
      Is it possible to program  CL to only use "M" setting or to remain on the "M" setting when manually put on ?
      (I want to control my exposure myself and not be dictated to by the camera.)
      What "off camera" flash should I buy for the CL. Thinking of second hand Metz or new Nissin but which hot shoe to use ???
      Thanks
