I already dismissed the Leica Barnack idea.
I'm not coming from an auto-everything SLR, but a Kodak Retina IIIc. Both are similar in that they are manual exposure (well, the way I use it atleast) and have squinty viewfinders, so those are things that I'm used to. I just wanted a RF that is ready-to-shoot and has decent focusing abilities without compromising build. A good LTM body might fit this bill and it might even be easier to focus because of the higher magnification, but the nicer Leica LTM lenses seem a bit expensive and overpriced. I think that I'd rather save up and go M instead or just deal with the Retina cameras.
