Subject: [Leica] Leica lenses on Canon DSLRs

This weekend I had the opportunity to try out someone's Canon digital 
Rebel (300) and I must say that it was not an unpleasant experience. The 
things that I dislike about the Digilux 2 and other P&S 
digicams--electronic viewfinder or poor optical one, shutter lag, clunky 
manual operation--were largely absent here.

Now, I know that Tina uses her Leica R lenses on a digital Canon body, 
and I suspect there are others here who do likewise. I would like to 
hear how well this works, in particular, how much the stop-down metering 
detracts from the whole experience (the loss of other auto functions 
would not bother me). Is this a realistic option, or something just for 
those who find the Visoflex handy?
