The Leica store Manchester has a lovely Minolta CLE set, with 28, 40, 90 lenses, flash module, and a nice brown leather case. Looks absolutely mint. £2k though, which seems a bit excessive to drop on a nice, what will no doubtedly be, a shelf decoration. I would like a nice aperture priority rangefinder and the Minolta one is supposed very good, although if the electronics fail then I think it’s completely dead - can’t even use it manually. Although that part I might be wrong. Not many CLEs seem to come up here, not that I’m actively looking, but when I did they were few and far between. Seem to remember that the camera was £1k alone, so this could be a good deal.
