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.
