Subject: [Leica] CL or Bessa T?

OK, hereís my plan. Please feel free to tell me Iím nuts.
I would like a second body of some kind.
I was thinking about using it for wide-angle lenses only.
For my 21 and 35, with viewfinders.
So I donít need a M6, but I want and must have a built-in meter.
So, I can use either a Bessa T, or a CL.
I like the idea of a CL, keeping the equipment within the family, so to
speak. (Snobby, ainít I?)
But the Bessa is a good price and a new camera.
So Iíd like to here from folks that use one or the other, and maybe somebody
who uses bothÖ Especially with 21-35mm lenses.
Metering quality? Etc., etc.

Thank you kindly,

Jay Burleson
