Nr Mint Minolta CLE rangefinder camera CLA'd Leica M mount withZhou leather case
I bought this from F Stop Cameras just a few months ago, but found that I wasn't picking it up as much as my other Leica M body, so I've decided to sell it (and hoping I don't soon regret it). By the way, in case you don't know, this is compatible with most Leica M lenses, and is one of the smallest Leica M compatible rangefinder cameras. It had a CLA before I received it, and is in near mint condition. There is a small cosmetic scratch on the top plate of the camera. Otherwise it is in nearly flawless condition. The viewfinder is crystal clear and bright, the rangefinder patch is crisp and contrasty. The light meter is accurate and the LEDs all work. Both the Manual and Aperture Priority mode work accurately at every speed. The film winding is snappy, and the shutter sounds crisp. I've film tested it and everything works great!
As part of the CLA it received brand new light seals, the contacts were cleaned, and the parts were lubricated. Other than the scratch on the top plate the only thing to mention is that I infrequently got the "dancing LED" issue when reading the meter in Auto mode, though rotating the shutter speed dial in both directions (thereby rubbing the electronic contacts underneath) immediately cleared the problem. It was only mildly annoying, but didn't give me any practical problems, but I do want to mention it. Included in the sale is the camera, body cap, batteries, a brand new and unused Mr.
Zhou black leather camera case, and if you'd like I will also throw in a brown leather shoulder strap (but please let me know if you'd like me to include it).
