With 16 R lenses and wanting to still have the option to shoot film on a Leica R body without changing the mounts, this is not the most palatable idea and in my case would be quite costly an option for the Sony Alpha System. Now if someone comes out with a system as an option that would offer a FF Mirrorless body that would use an adapter instead of changing the mount...
The Leica M with the R to M adapter will allow for info to be recorded and corrected via Photoshop CS6 or LR4 with 20 R lenses and...Show more →
Rich, why not think about use a Canon FF for the time being. a 5dII can be have at about $1200, which will not break your bank. You don't need Leitax them. I am still debating that routine, as I can have some Leica Zoom worked without do modification. (Though, I have zero complain about Leitax prime lens for Nikon, but I don't like the idea of surgery Leica zoom lens to Leitax them, which make Canon a better option to me.)
A Leica M is really for M user with occasional need for Tele R lens IMO. Though I agree it is best option for royal Leica user with R lens on hand, but the market segment for that is very small, IMO and the premium price is hardly justified if that is all your intention. You waste a huge potion of function of RANGEFINDER M and only use it as UNKNOWN performance full frame sensor as a platform with LEICA name on it.
Sooner or later, a FF ML camera will be introduced, make this investment even more of question mark unless you shoot M lens?
What you think?
