Of course, I too work with adapters for my G3 or different mounts (Leitax) for my K5 to use my R-lenses. But that's not the point !

I do not quite understand your point. Is it a problem using your R lenses with your M9 via R-> M adapter (R lenses too big for the VF) and are you hoping for a non-RF Leica with R mount ? I have a 24mm f/2.8 Elmarit R, a 75-200mm f/4.5 Vario-Elmar R and a 60mm f/2.8 Macro-Elmarit R. They work fine on a Ricoh GXR M mount via R -> M adapter (although the 75-200 is indeed a bit too heavy). Maybe you can give it a try, the GXR M mount is not expensive and has no AA filter. Best, N.

kind regards
