Yes, it is a poll to find out how many on the group regularly use these
cameras. I am not attempting to determine which would be better for me to
acquire, since I am a regular CL user. These cameras are not in the Leica
mainstream (so to speak), and with production having been limited to some
27,000 M5s and I don't know how many Leica CL (as opposed to Minolta CL and
CLE production), I am curious to see how much interest there is in these
cameras with their unique challenges such as lens compatability, visoflex
use, etc.
