in this kit:
The Leica CL is a 35mm compact rangefinder camera with interchangeable lenses in the Leica M/Mount. It was developed in collaboration with Minolta who manufactured it. It first appeared in April 1973 and was released in the Japanese market in November 1973 as the Leitz Minolta CL.
The Leica CL has a vertical-running focal plane shutter, with cloth curtains, giving ½ to 1/1000 speeds. There is a through-the-lens CdS exposure meter mounted on a pivoting arm just in front of the shutter, like the Leica M5.
The exposure is manual and the shutter is mechanical. The shutter speeds are visible in the finder. The finder's framelines are for a 40mm, 50mm or 90mm lens. The 40mm frameline is always present and the 50mm or 90mm frame line is automatically selected upon mounting of the appropriate lens.
The CL comes with the Leica 40mm f/2 Summicron and the 90mm f/4 Elmar making it a very versatile little camera, these two focal lengths will cover anything from landscape photography to portraiture.
Overall the Leica CL is a really classy camera, while boasting many characteristics of the classic Leica aesthetic it also comes in a lot cheaper than some of its m mount counterparts paving a great path for someone looking to get into higher end rangefinder cameras.Specifications:
