All that, and absence of fast lenses
did the G in for me.   I could live with the slow autofocus
though; not ideal, but I can lock the focus.
The G lenses are just superb.  Bob Shell on another list
mentioned that the G lenses will be made for the Leica M.
That would be really fantastic (I like them because they are
light; same reason I really like the VC lenses).
