>Greetings...I had the following specific question concerning M lens
>compatibility with the Leica CL camera.  Which of these lenses will mount on
>the CL, and which will also allow full rangefinder focussing (i.e., the lens
>does not block the rangefinder window):

>24mm ASPH Elmarit
>35mm Summicron (last pre-ASPH version)
>90mm Elmarit-M (the latest version)
>15mm Voigtlander Heliar with screw mount to M adapter (will this foul the
>meter arm?)


All these will mount on the CL. I have the last three; the 35 and 15 
don't block the RF, they are not much bigger than the 40mm CL lens; 
not sure of the 90 as I don't have my CL here to check right now, but 
I can't remember it blocking enough of the view to be disturbing. The 
15 with the adapter doesn't affect the meter arm.
