You don't have to remove it for loading film. It is well made. Adds
almost no weight. It does not rub against the camera body. IMHO, it is
best as a tripod-thread centerer, although the only lens on which that
matters is the 2.8 Elmarit-M (the one with eyes) and it has its own
socket. I don't enjoy the height added to the camera, so tend not to use
it. Try it to form your own opinion.

No M6, M4-P  _EVER_  slipped out of my hands, although I am certain that
this is a function of the esteem in which I hold my cameras, as I drop
all sorts of lesser things all the time.
