Last week there was a Leica rep at my local store and I had a chance to fondle
the R9. I was very suprised when I peered through the viewfinder. Dare I say
it was even brighter than my SL with it's re-silvered prism block? 

I'm a big fan of the ergonomics of the R8/9 and I actually like the way it looks.
The reasons why I don't own one are because it is even bigger than the SL 
(but it does seem lighter), I prefer mechanical cameras and I know that the SL
can probably be dropped off a cliff and will still work.
