Thanks John,
although this, happily, contradicts the other reports I'd heard.
This is news good enough to determine further enquiry.
Anyone else got a good or bad experience of the QL kit for earlier Ms?

The quickload kit makes a significant difference in loading times in the M2.
Apparently in the M3, which I have not tried it in, you have to lift up the
spool to reset the film counter and this slows things down. In my M2 it
usually loads just as fast as my M4-2.
