Great post. Like the pic per post idea too. Hmmm that's got me thinking. You're right a full frame m mount alternative to the Leica would be very attractive, but given the GXR's nature there's no reason why there couldn't be an APS-C one as well at a lower price, and if you had both doubling the use of the lenses.

Good point about which mount too. Since the mount module's release the Ricoh have gained their own mount now, so helping to sell someone else's lenses will be less attractive. Course Ricoh might decide to use the K, start afresh with something new, or even add electronics to the m mount so supporting all the great manual lenses and bring out a range of auto-focus ones. Given that even the Leica M now has liveview perhaps sacrilege could be committed and there would be a m mount zoom. But that's probably going to far.
