Hi Dennis,
I'm afraid the R ship has sailed and sunk. :-(.
When I handled the prototype S2 at Photokina 08 - I was told by Maike  
Harberts that she would be starting to work on the R10
design as soon as the S2 design was finalized. But as we all know that  
did not happen and I don't know if
Maike is even still with Leica.
