You are wrong here Richard, there is a plenty of hard information  
that M lenses are unsuited to digital sensors. That is what Leica  
said officially themselves until the Epson RD1 showed they were not  
too bad and customer pressure lead to them going ahead, by all  
accounts against their better judgement. I believe that the hurried  
RD1 which has loads of shortcomings still is fun to use. Probably  
Leica will not rush it and use better technology to ameliorate the  
problems but there still is hard data that the M lenses will not be  
as good on digital than film. The first statement regarding their  
unsuitability came from Leica themselves and the subsequent  
discussion is presumably in the archives.
