I sure would not recommend a Leica anything in the hands of a photographer without a lot of experience or is in love with a SLR. The rangefinder is a different beast. It is not auto anything including auto focus or electronic focus assist. However, manual focus on a range finder is as fast as most AF once you master it. However, it has to be mastered and you have to like the touch and feel of the camera.

It is the same as using a Nikon FM2 apart from the focusing. So if I won the lottery I would have gotten one, but as that is very unlikely it is out of my budget

So much stick to poor mans Leica; Foveon...
AF takes away the Zen in photography
