The SL10 would pique my interest.  The R cameras have all been a bit
underwhelming for me, there's been a little something left to be desired in
the viewfinder, the shutter, the handling, and/or the construction compared
with the Leicaflexes.  The old Leicaflexes are the M3 of reflex cameras,
the R cameras are the M4-2 of reflex cameras.
