Fuji GFX digital rangefinder is a possibility (plus a Leica M10/Fuji GFX poll)

In a recent interview with dpreview, Fuji representative mentioned that a Fuji GFX based digital rangefinder is a possibility (see the already discontinued Fuji GF670 film medium format rangefinder):

Could these same benefits be applied to medium format, we asked. ‘Of course it could be an idea for medium format,’ says Oishi: ‘it depends on demand and the market. The GFX 50S is one style: the ‘S’ means 'SLR-style.' Another way to do it would be a rangefinder style camera. Maybe an ‘R’ could be a rangefinder: we’re always considering other options and possibilities.’

‘If mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is too big as a rangefinder style, a fixed lens camera could be smaller, like the GF670.’

Both the new Leica M10 and the Fuji GFX cameras that were announced last week were priced the same ($6,595 for the Leica M10 and $6,499 for the Fuji GFX 50S). If you were given the choice to get one of those cameras for free, which one would you choose? Here is a poll:
