I keep seeing negative remarks about Leica's weird bottom loading design. What's going on here? I have used Leica M cameras for only about 5 years now- I own an M3 and an M6- and I have no problems with this quirk. Frankly, I really like this way of doing things- I find the M6 actually easier to load than some swing back designs. Ok, so it's a slow process with the M3 with it's removable spool- but done with just a little care, I have never had a misload. I don't pull out tons of leader- I get 38 frames on most rolls. I do check the tension, and watch the rewind crank move to make sure it's properly advancing, but I find it's a good idea to do this with all manual loading cameras. It's the same routine I go through with my Nikon FM2 and FE2. <p> I have read that Leica keeps this system partly because they are afraid to mess with the design of the M body (a good choice, in my opinion), but also because it means the body can be more rigid and impact resistant. <p> So how do you folks feel about this? Does everyone hate this loading system, or are there others out there who like or even love this way of doing things? Why?
