    WTB - Lens for my Leica CL

    hi

    got a leica CL.. but no lens for it i can call my own.

    Looking for standard or mild wide lens. In order of preference

    summicron c 40mm
    CV Nokton 40
    summarit 35

    dont have silly collector bucks to spend on this... just looking for a beater street photo type lens.

    would even consider funky LTM lens

    let me know

    cheers

    Kevin

    Well the CL heads LOVE the 40 summicron
    & rave about its sharpness /feel its the PURRfect lens for that body

    the cv nokton has two opposing sides / those that absolutely ADORE it
    & those that abhor the bokeh

    the summarit 35 is a JEWEL & very under rated

    Are we allowed to go into Madame's Stash
    cause I would take her 35 pre asph lux (I adore mine)

    otherwise a 35 Biogon is Dynamite /if you LOVE contrast for B&W its heaven
    and Zeiss w/color is magic

    Best-H

    I have a 90mm f4 Elmar C lens for $250 in exc+ condition. It's designed for Leica CL. The 40mm and the 90mm are all you need for CL.

    I have a 40-C with shade, and an adapter for 39mm filters if you are interested.
