    My 2.8C Xenotar is like that. My E, E2 and E3's no...

    I always thought that was to keep the lens and body in sync, but it is a long long time since I had a Hasselblad!

    To back up what others have said the general advice for pre and post war folders with any type of shutter is to be on the safe side change the speed before cocking the shutter. This is particularly so with cheaper copies like the Moskva.

    well, it depends on the case

    in some of the Soviet-era cameras, like the Zorkis or FED, you can change shutter settings only AFTER the shutter has been cocked!
    probably that's true also for the pre-war Leicas, since the Soviet cameras were basically Leica copies, but IDK for sure

    The shutter speeds on all screwmount (Barnack) Leicas, up to and including the IIIg, have to be changed after the shutter has been cocked.

    From the few cameras I've used: if you have to lift the shutter wheel to change speeds (eg screwmount Leica) , best do it after cocking. If you don't need to lift it, it should be okay either way (M Leica).
    If it's a leaf shutter, set highest speeds before cocking.

    If you feel more resistance than normal, stop. It's relative though – Kiev RFs seem to be stiffer than Zorkis or FEDs.

    I can tell about a Kiev-4 (even if it is a 35 mmm) that film must be advanced before, see here

    Then, with a Rollei requiring setting before cocking, you can't advance the film either, if you are moving locations and don't know what you will need. ?? Am I missing something here?

    That's right. With my Rollei Automat I (1) set the aperture, (2) set the shutter speed, (3) advance the film and (4) make the exposure. To avoid confusing myself, I do the same thing with my Rollei MX-EVS even though it isn't necessary.
