I have had a Leica R4S modified to an R4SP, still have an R4SP, an R7 and a R8. All have been very reliable with little problem over the many years. I have not used a Leica R6 or the updated R6.2. Both should be very fine and reliable cameras. As to the Leica glass- they are superb. You will not be disappointed. The feel and operation of Leica lenses mechanically is legendary. No mechanical 35mm or medium format feel and operate like Leica lenses. They use self lubricating helixes of brass on aluminum.
No doubt - agree. For a cost no object situation, Leica is a truly amazing thing. And the used R lens prices are a little less stratospheric than the rangefinder - so is a relative bargain.
