I agree with you on the looks of the R8/9, I don't like it either.
But these looks are clearly a result of functionality. The ergonomics of 
the R8/9 are imho unsurpassed. Pick one up  and it will fit your hands 
as a tailormade glove.

Anyhow, if you shoot with it you don't see it, so who cares about looks:-)

Best regards,
