And I mean a 'little' cash.......seems crazy when written down, but I've had a satisfactory PX offer....well........

Does one ever get a satisfactory PX offer, but at least I rid of it all in one foul swoop.

I'm 76, been at this AP nonsence for 60 years plus.

It's difficult for me to remember when I had so much fun and enjoyment with a camera as I have with the new CL/18-56, I think I'd have to go back to 'the-day' and my Nikon F2A. 

Now I eagerly await the TL 55-135mm :) but it's out of stock :( till 1st of May.

Are you looking to exchange all your olympus gear with a bit of cash on top for a Leica 55-135?

Maybe list the lenses and a photo always helps.

No, all my Oly gear for a 55-135 with a bit of cash on top.

I know it's not the best way, best to sell privately, but it gets rid.

I used London Camera Exchange to offload my Oly kit, seemed quite reasonable

One piece at a time, I've been selling off my Olympus gear too. I'm just so loathe to sell the E-1 and its 11-22, 25, 35 macro, and 50-200 lens, and the same lenses work so well on the E-M1 as well. Sigh. 

I did give my E-PL7 and two zoom lens mini kit to my niece.... :D It has so little value on the used market I'd much rather give it to someone who will make use of it and learn from it.

My m43 lenses nearly all went to Clifton Cameras because they made it so easy. The Voigtlander 10.5 Nocticron, Panasonic 7-14 and the Oly 12 f1.8 went to eBay after serving me well because they commanded a good price there. I tried not to think about what I’d paid for them. 

Ive kept my EM1 mk 1 for sentimental reasons along with the Samyang 7.5 FE. There’s no real monetary value in either and I enjoy using the fisheye and haven’t found one yet for the CL.

I’ve not a single regret though after more than a year with this system and you won’t have either.

I've had the CL+18-56 for just over a week, no regrets, I'm loving it, and eagerly await the 55-135. 

Well.......may be just one, ''in camera focus stacking'...but I can live without it.

The 55-135 must be a cut-above from what owners have reported on here, NONE had a bad word to say about it, quite the reverse in fact.

It's difficult for me to put into words.... the Leica ethos, I think 'simplicity' sums it up.

The CL, I think, would make the ideal camera for 'Fed Flintstone'...it just takes pictures, end-off, no bells and whistles, just blinking good pictures.

After sixty'ish years of AP this is my first Leica..... it's......it's just different somehow.

BTW...another word that sums up Leica from a raw newbie...is 'idiosyncratic'.
