...  But let me ask. How many of the lenses you used with the F-1 you still use today?

I still use almost all my lenses that I used with the M4. There is only one exception: I have a 35mm Summaron that lasted 41 years of usage. The diafragm went so bad that was beyond repair.

If I used a Nikon, I would still be using the lenses ... however, Canon changed from a Breech Lock to bayonet mount for technical reasons and that made the old lenses incompatible with new cameras.   Nikon maintained the F-mount and a few photographers still use the manual focus lenses.

Leica digital M is unique in that it is still a manual focus system and that makes old lenses often usable in the "modern" lenses.
