Sometimes you might want an SLR, sometimes an RF. Personally, my money is in my M lenses. It'd be great to have an expensive SLR system, but for the time being, my needs are met by a Canon 50/1.4 and a 28/1.8. Yes, they duplicate lenses I have for RF, but they both cost about as much as a Leica hood and lens cap do. I was actually considering buying an R and an 80 Summilux about 6 months ago but figured I'd be better off hunting down a 75 Summilux instead. It was more expensive, but I didn't have to buy an R body, saving some money, nor do I have to lug an extra body around if I want to use that focal length. That's just me though. If you have the need for both systems, keep them. If you never use the R system, sell it.
