The Fuji ( body ) will give you three things the Leica can't, or will only in a limited capacity:
1. Real low light shooting capability (if it matters to you)
2. In-camera Fuji color emulations (Astia, Velvia, etc.)
3. Better dynamic range (dramatically better I would say)
4. Very natural looking skin tones
5. JPGs which are straightaway usable.
Ok, that's actually five...

I have (and still use) the 6MP S5 Pro, and had various little Fuji snappers over the years, so the points I am making are not based on opinion, but on experience.

Now, what the Fuji lenses will give you over the Leica, that's a different story. While the Fujinons are not shabby lenses (they still produce them for Hassy), as an M9 owner with various Leica and Zeiss lenses, I know where I stand on that question.

And I agree with you... however, rumor has it we'll be able to use our M glass on the Fuji soon enough. Whether it will be practical for manual focusing remains to be seen.
