Yes and no, it comes down which legacy glass you want to buy, if i look at what i have spent on legacy glass then no it is not a saving, but for me i can go out and buy a Fuji X pro 1 and buy a new Leica M mount adapter and i am good to go.

Leica M

  • Voigtlander 25mm f4 VM £355
  • Voigtlander 35mm f1.4 VM Nokton MC £500
  • Zeiss ZM 50mm f1.5 C-Sonnar £850
  • Voigtlander 75mm f1.8 VM £580

I would say is, if you looking at going down the legacy road then stick to one mount type, Canon FD is very good, you can get some very good glass for not a lot of money. just on a side note, i don't own any AF glass, and can never see myself going back to AF glass.
