Your conclusion is not evident at all. He is hinting on a upcoming AF Leica 
DSLR, ok. But why should such a camera not be able to use the manual focus R 
What's shure in any case, they won't call it "Leica R.A.F."! :-)

Though I consider myself as a quite quick rangefinder focuser, I admit to 
appreciate autofocus from time to time. Leica MUST step into that. The 
manual focus dogma is just another myth they gotta give up.
