Subject: [Leica] Got my Winder R8!!!!

Well, I got my Leica R8 winder today. Boy is this one smooth unit. Almost
silent when any noise is in the room, and very small. Film rewind is slow,
but it leaves the leader out. Cool!

The only problem so far is pulling out the advance knob has become a
reflex. And the motor doesn't work when the advance knob is out. Gotta
retrain. As for ergonomics, it really does meld into the body and actually
makes the camera feel better. Heavier for sure. But it's not bad at all. I
love it.
