I've now had a Canon 7s RF with 50/1.2 LTM Canon for a couple of weeks, and
the results so far are pretty good, both with the Canon and Leica LTM

Having an LTM body which automatically corrects for parallax is a distinct
advantage, and the switchable framelines (35/50/85/100/135) are bright and
clear. The rangefinder is good enough, but not a patch on the crisply
defined RF area on my M2 and M3s.

The shutter is quiet and accurate, and loading is a breeze.

It's a good deal quicker to use than my IIIf, but there's no contest in the
handling and feel department compared with the M Leicas.

If you want to use M lenses, use them on an M body.
