i think the obvious solution is to just keep what you have. when you
get a call to do something your M can't do, use your EOS.
keep the m6 in your pocket when you go on assignment. that's how lots
and lots of photojournalists do it. your EOS is probably more capable
than an R8 anyway. the ass-kicking i'm going to get from sal aside, it's
not leica's strongest area. and it's very very expensive.

just my .02, take it for what it's worth.
