Subject: [Leica] Canon DSLR R lens use

I second Michiel's advice. I never noticed any particular exposure  
problems when using Leica R lenses on my Canons (20D and more  
recently 1DII) or with the Olympus for that matter.

I don't remember the 20D, but my 1DII accepts 4 GB cards, and since  
the 20D was introduced after the 1DII, I am pretty sure that it  
accepts cards of at least that size as well.
