Jae, Tom, et al,

I'm not really an expert in things Leica, so I don't know what qualifies as 
recent. But my 28 Elmarit, #3154xxx, does activate the 28mm frame lines in 
my CLE. The only problem is that the lens barrel protrudes slightly into 
the lower right portion of the viewfinder image. Irritating, but I've 
gotten used to it.

Tom, I've seen used CLE's in Shutterbug for $750 or so. I agree, why pay a 
collector's premium for a camera that inevitably (if you're as klutzy as I 
am) won't remain mint?
