Just not the best ones - OK you can also do manual metering with an M7. 
Difficult with a CLE, but probably my only niggle. I still find the CLE 
to be way ahead of any Leica developed since, they should have stuck at 
it -  a CLE-2 (various metering modes), CLE-3 (R9 Electronics) and of 
course we would have had a CLE-D years ago.
