Thanks Frank

I wish my digital R was the size and form factor of the R6.2  I 
anticipate a lot of people do, perhaps along the lines of "if Nikon 
could do the D700, why couldn't Leica do the R10?"

With the PC, that is my most fun lens.  I spent a couple weeks in Venice 
with it - I really enjoy it.

And yes, film.  I wish there was a compact digi-R solution.  I have a 
Novoflex R to M adapter that I haven't played with yet.  M9 with R lens 
and guess focusing, but no crop factor.

I also have a Novoflex R to GF1 adapter, still haven't spent time with it.

More toys than time......
