comment Which mirrorless system should I pick for M-mount lenses (Leica / Zeiss ZM)
@MarcinWolny, to continue, I don't see the use of a separate sensor module designed ground-up for leica M glass, that fits into a sensorless body, as obviating the defn of a 'mirrorless' camera. Surely your aesthetic issues are separate issues? Personally I like the anonymous design and solid construction (and understand that others don't!) as it creates an excellent feel & balance for a photographic tool, whilst being totally silent when taking photos and therefore perfect for candid portraits. AND, THE LACK OF A MIRROR MEANS IT'LL RELIABLY TAKE TACK SHARP IMAGES HANDHELD AT 1/30TH SEC.

@MarcinWolny, Maybe 'roadmap' ended with the acquisition of Pentax by Ricoh. However, to say the ergonomics are horrible is to highlight that you've not used it for any meaningful amount of time. Ergonomics are simply fantastic - way better than Leica X1, X100, X-E1 - and make using the system with the A12 M Mount an absolute joy. The sensor, as mattdm points out, is highly optimised for M lenses and it works beautifully. White balance is perfect. Focus peaking with centre magnification is excellent. Noise is film-grain like above ISO 600. GXR is definitely, definitionally, 100% 'mirrorless'.
