It's compatible with any Leica reflex except the original Leicaflex, at its best with SL, SL2, R8 or R9.  Very sharp lens, some field curvature, handling is quick if the lens is properly lubricated:

Very hand-holdable if used carefully.  Check the lens mount; they were also made in a Visoflex mount which can be adapted easily to LOTS of 35mm SLR bodies.
