The ricoh GXR seems to be the best platform for M lenses.
Aside from actual RF's, you're right, for some lenses and/or some shooting scenarios. With prices falling, I picked A GXR up with the idea that it'd be a great pano camera I could use to get the best corner-to-corner performance out of some of my favorite lenses without have to overlap frames greatly and saving a little hard drive space in the process. And I was right. The only real ding against it in this regard is the way-off-center placement of the tripod mount, which I'm hoping can be overcome with a generic L plate, but the hand held test panos have stitched together seamlessly. And you can add a cabled release, unlike Sony. I like the single-shot landscapes I'm getting out of it, too, but high resolution isn't a high priority for me. Single frames print beautifully uprezed to 17x22, and that's about as demanding as I get. So if you like RF wides, don't want to pop for a digital M or shoot film, don't mind only having 12MP, and are mostly interested in shooting sharp, detailed landscapes at low ISOs, it's a great choice.
For everything else, I can't reach for the NEX-7 fast enough.
