Thanks for all the comments. Sounds like the R is probably the way to go.

How do people find the ergonomics? It looks like you may not be able make changes to the controls as quick as you would on a DSLR, but I expect it's something you get use to?

The one thing that threw me at first was learning to use the M-Fn button.  I was used to the row of buttons across most Canon DSLRs and especially the one for changing ISO.  Took me a while to realize that the M-Fn button can allow you to change 5 different settings by pressing it and using the rear dial to select the function you want to change and then the front dial to actually change the setting.  It really is ingenious but I don't know why they limited it to just 5 functions.  You can customize the 5 functions too.  Other than that everything else flowed pretty effortlessly for me.
