Many Canon users are getting simple adapters to put Leica-R lenses on Canon 
cameras.  There are also some chipped adapters that enable electronic focus 
confirmation.  There are some issues you might have to work out, for example 
exposure metering accuracy varies as you stop the lens down, and unless your 
camera's mirror box and viewscreen are particularly well-adjusted, accurate 
focus on the viewscreen and accurate focus on the image plane can be 
different and will need some adjustment.  AFAIK the mirror box accuracy is 
much more reliable with the 1-series bodies.
