GXR black and white

I've been looking at bw images from the GXR, many of them are really outstanding! For those that are still using this camera, or want to jump in, how do you think it compares with the GR+21mm auxilliary lens? Thoughts on GXR now?
Many thanks

GXR + A12 M-Mount + quality glass = awesome capability. I shoot this setup in RAW, convert to B&W in lightroom and really enjoy the output.

this was at 1250 or 1600 ISO with an M-Rokkor 40/2, grain added to match film images i make.

I have sold my GXR with A12 Leica module just recently (I guess I was possessed at the time) and I am still getting over it. If you have one do not sell it, and yes in produces excellent files with Leica or Zeiss lenses.

.....I think you are all responsible to make me buy GXR+M module+EVF etc.
Yes,Just bought the complete set as like new all boxed.
I currently use M9 and M240 ans was thinking about M8 but seriously GXR is much better and truely represents VFM.
I have sevaral lenses but I will mount 24 F2.8 Elmarit Asph as a semi-permanenet lens.
