    Does anybody know why the RTS and RTS II film advances clockwise, while most other SLRs (including other Contax SLRs such as the 139Q, S2), advance counterclockwise.

    Film loading is faster with counterclockwise, in my experience.

    Just wondering why Contax chose to make it different on the RTS and RTS II.
