I guess it's more a "strengths" issue, not really a problem. Take 50mm as neutral. Both RF and SLR work well at normal. Then put a wide angle on an SLR and everything kind of always seems in focus (because of the greater depth of field). So this could cause a focus error. While a rangefinder will encourage you to focus just as accurately.

Then put a slight telephoto on an SLR and start taking portrait photos. It's just pure fun. While the rangefinder with a telephoto just seems like a kludge. The M2 did a good workaround by moving the framelines. But my Contax didn't - requires accessory finder or guesswork.
