You could, of course, remove the mirror of the A99 and only use Leica R lenses on it, which would give you a similar concept for much cheaper, since size isn't an issue.


I think this is sensible if the rangefinder approach is a key reason for wanting to try Leica. But the M will be a considerably different body with live view/EVF, better high ISO, better responsiveness, more modern and much more hybrid in capability... Depending on what Jae wants, an M8 or M9 could be a turnoff from the system when the new M might actually check all the boxes.

And of course, on the M you can use all the R lenses and those from pretty much any other system out there. The biggest tradeoff for this really, is price.
