I compared the fit & feel of the R, not the M, with the original Nikon F,
Marc. I'll stand on that comparison. I shot for 5 years with an early Nikon
F. It was awesome to me. I don't think the constructional aspects of the
today's R is any better than the 
Nikon F. 

Now, just calm down and tell me how I'm wrong. This is going to be as tough
as the auto issue, but, at least, it'll be on topic.
