Thanks to my friend Gilberto Benni, manager of the Leica Store Piazza di Spagna in Rome, I had the opportunity to quickly try the Leica CL just a couple of days after its official launch. As soon as we met, he handed me the camera along with the newly introduced Elmarit 18mm TL and an M-to-TL adapter.

I have been constantly looking for an effective out-of-camera monochrome solution in the last few years. Sometimes the painstaking color-to-b&w post-processing job turns out to be a heavy and neverending task. But none of the cameras I recently used did hit the target for me. Until the release of the amazing Olympus Pen-F. As PhotoGraphia regulars probably recall, I have been a Micro 4/3 fan since its birth in 2008.
