Also, one final observation - the flange to sensor distance is 20mm for Leica/Panasonic/Sigma and Canon RF, 18mm for Sony, and 16mm for Nikon Z. If you think you might enjoy adapting old rangefinder lenses from busted cameras, the Nikon is maybe the one to go for.  I do have some I adapted to my sony (Walz Kominar 7 element) that I can't use on my Panasonic. And some I tried to use on my Sony I didn't quite have room (Canon QL 40/1.7 and a couple of Konica cameras). Fortunately there is a wealth of interchangeable lenses available which will adapt to any of the systems mentioned.

Also, there is no Techart adapter for Leica M to SL mount, but other systems do have it, if you might like to tinker like that. I'm a confirmed manual focus only person myself (even if it means missing the shot), so it isn't really an issue.
