Well, the CL feels large and junky compared to the Rollei 35, and really is
of an opposite philosophy, as it has interchangeable lenses.  Much as I
respect Leica, I have never been enamored of the CL.  But the basic,
Tessar-equipped, Rollei 35 or the S and its derivatives, now there is a
killer of a camera!

The Sonnar in the S and its derivaties routinely tests better than the
Summicron on the CL, incidentally.  On THIS issue, I am decidely on the
Rolleiflex side!
