I would 'not like' to use either CL or M5, but then again I have not actually
used it for a long period before, so I am not the best qualified person to
put a negative comment on it.I am sure they got their die-hard fan out there.
My own opinion is they are too "un-LEICA"-like.

I used M4,M4-P and M6 with Summilux-35, Summicron-50 and Summicron-90 with
Winder M4-2 on my M4-P. Look forward to adding an Abrhamsson Rapidwinder soon.
Have anyone had any field experience with it? Would like to hear your comment.

Thanks fellow Leicaphiles for making this user-forum such a lively and
place to be.
