Bob,

Is this the same thing as with the Konica Hexar RF where Leica M and Konica
M lenses are slightly difrerent? 
I mean is it due to the slight difference in the flange distance as I
recall?

Rangefinder accurate but prisms prone to flaking of silver.  I don't know if
replacement parts are still available.  Rangefinder works properly only with
the lenses made for the CL and will be slightly off with other lenses.

Shutter reputed to be troublesome but I never had one come in for shutter
problems, always rangefinder desilvering.

Meter is very accurate but can't be used with a few lenses which protrude
into the body too far.
