Fact is if we're using an RF film camera we don't see the pictures until 
quite a 
while later, instant viewing on a digi is ok but very distracting and, if 
honest, doesn't help much either.

I think the future of top line digital rangefinders should be in a plug-in 
monitor for viewing images, make different ones so you choose your size, 
resolution etc. If you want it on the camera then maybe a 2" screen to slip 
the accessory shoe like a vertical finder, great for close-ups too, combine 
with storage capacity (and play MP3s on it if you like). Keep all the stuff 
doesn't really have to be a part of the camera body off it and you could 
possibly keep the size of an M body more or less as it is.
