I also have longer R lenses and I use them all on the GXR with R - Adapter. But since I have the M 8.2 the GXR was nearly always at home. Focusing with a rangefinder is great for me as a former user of Leica IIIf and M6 (still have them). Rangefinder focussing is really another story but not for everyone. In former day it was not the camera that makes the difference. It was the film and the lens. People stayed a much longer time together with a camera (m6) and they change films and sometimes lenses. At this time (me included) we change the camera nearly every year. I really hope this has an end for me with the M8.2. I also gave the M9 a try but image quality was not better IMHO M8.2 has the edge in bw and sharpness.
