I am a strong believer of the CL.  I own two of them, one with the 40 
Summicron which
I shoot b&w Ilford XP-2 and the other with 90 Elmar that I keep Fuji NPS 160 
in.  I imagine
if Buzz bangs his other cameras around as he did his CL, he probably has 
repairs to them as well.  The electronics of these cameras doesn't matter 
much to me
cause I don't use a light meter or a least not very often.  Since 99% of my 
is taken out of doors, I know what to set the camera at to get a good 
negative.  That comes
with experience.  Neither of the light meters work in my CL's and that's OK. 
 They are great 
cameras and I get a lot of inquires when people see me with 2 of them around 
my neck.
If you want to see examples, go to my web-site at  
With the exception
of the desert shots and the Howard-Boss Motorsports section, all of the rest 
were taken with the CL.
The choice of course is yours and with all cameras it should be a personal 
decision.  Don't buy
anything that you truly won't be happy with.
