What Follows the M Mount?
Mar 7, 2013

Many users adopted the GXR because of the M module, including me.  Now that the GXR has become a "system" of aging components and no further development, what's next?  The 3/4s standard seems insufficient for Leica and Zeiss rangefinder lenses.  The early NEX 5's were found inadequate for wider lenses, although I understand that the 5N and 6 are better.  The Fujis are reportedly just mediocre with non-native mount lenses.  The same seems to be true for Samsung NX models. Any thoughts on what's now or likely to be a replacement for the GXR M or are we left, after all, with only the expensive Leica M if we want the best body for our rangefinder lenses?
