Huh?  Complicated to rewind?  I seem to remember just sliding a switch with 
my right thumb and one with my left thumb and the roll rewinding very 
quickly.  Seemed easy enough at the time.

Heavy, yes, I'll give you that one.  But the grip on the MD4 allowed the 
combination to dangle perfectly from my curled long as the 
lens wasn't too big.

*Sigh* I love my Leicas, but I still do miss my F3/MD4 combo.
