You've got it wrong on a few points. Leica's digital M's have no EVF, only an optical vf, which to many people is the reason why they shoot rangefinders. Also, there's a difference in feeling when you as the user have control over the focus as opposed to waiting for the an af camera to achieve focus. It's frustrating if you're used to being in control, even if most of the time the af will be faster. I have an x100 and lots of rangefinder experience (although I don't own a digital Leica) and the user experiences between the two are very different, despite the similarities in body design. I like using both but they are very different and people need to have their expectations set appropriately. Maybe the x100s (and the other two bodies with the af and mf improvements) will be a leica killer, but not now. That doesn't mean either camera won't work for some people, just that they are different experiences.

This. Even using a good MF lens on my XPro1 feels much better to me. Although it is slower, it's frustration-free because everything is under my control.
