 Nikons offer motor drives, a more versatile finder system (F3) and are to
 some hands (like mine) far more comfortable to use.
 Although looking over Leica's latest financial report, which shows R sales
 falling by 37% compared to the same six months last year, Leica probably
 wishes the system had no competition.

Having once owned both those Nikons, I only failed to mention them because I
had heard they are soon being discontinued (unfortunately so).
