The Minolta CLE is a TTL-metering aperture-priority automatic 35mm rangefinder camera taking Leica M lenses, introduced by Minolta in 1981.
Leica and Minolta signed a technical cooperation agreement in June 1972.
One of its results was the joint development of the Leica CL, a compact rangefinder camera introduced in 1973 and discontinued a few years later.
The essential features of the Minolta CLE are based on the Leica CL, which was manufactured by Minolta in Japan in cooperation with Leitz between 1973 and 1976. The Minolta CLE is similar in type and dimensions to the Leica CL, but with some modern enhancements.
Three lenses were made by Minolta specially for the CLE: the M-Rokkor 28mm f2.8 wide-angle, the M-Rokkor 40mm f2 standard and the M-Rokkor 90mm f4 tele.
