The Leica TL 18mm and the TL 11/23 are both AF.  The 11/23 is very highly regarded.

Voigtlander also has a 10mm and 12mm and 15mm option, all of which are well thought of and reasonably priced.  Must use M adapter to L lens mount.

You can pick up the 18mm used very reasonably. I find it to be an excellent lens and very compact. No adapter required.....!

My favorite ultra wide angle that I use on the CL is the Super-Elmar-R 15mm f/3.5. Big, heavy, expensive, and rare ... but focusing to about 6 inches, superbly crisp and easy to focus everywhere, and excellent handling despite its size and weight. It nets about a 22mm eqFOV in FF terms. A superb lens.

I'm using a Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 with a Nikon adapter. Was always an excellent lens on my Nikon, below a picture from Washington DC. Crowded Cherry Blossom weekend so there was no chance to lose the people. Kind of big compared to my other lenses.

Here's a sample photo from a walk downtown ...

      Greetings!
      Anyone tried to use the little flash unique that comes with the Leica D-Lux 7 package on a Leica CL body?  Would that be compatible?   (just for fill flash purpose)

      Dear Leica-Enthusiasts,
      I have been shooting with the Leica CL since a few months now and always use M lenses with the Leica and Novoflex adapters. However, over these last months I have noticed that lens-adapter-camera combination is not completely rigid. I can now slightly rotate the mount back and forth. It does not seem to affect the IQ but I am worried that it might loosen even more.
      Has anyone had similar experiences? I will probably just send it in to Wetzlar...

      Guten Abend,
      schon lange bin ich lesendes Mitglied im Forum. Ich bin 44 Jahre alt und fotografiere seit vielen Jahren Natur und Straße, vor allem Makro und Street und liebäugle seit langem mit einer Leica CL.
      Jetzt habe ich mich endlich durchgerungen und mich für das Sondermodell der Leica CL Bauhaus entschieden. Ich gebe zu, ich habe mich in dieses schlichte Design verliebt.
      Leider war ich wohl zu spät... überall ausverkauft. Kann mir aus dem Forum jemand helfen? Gibt es noch irgendwo eine Chance an ein Exemplar zu kommen? 
      Ja ich weiß, die Edition ist nahezu gleich dem Originalmodell bis auf den Schriftzug und den Gurt... aber verliebt ist verliebt.
      Würde mich freuen wenn jemand etwas weiß.
       
      Vielen Dank vorab und schöne Grüße aus Bayern 
      Nadine

      Looking at a preowned CL. Anybody know how to bring up the shutter count?  Appreciate it.
