    I have two Rs, and both are free of any obvious mechanical defect in this area. However, I do find that as I near the end of the rewind (the film is almost completely back into the can), the going gets tough. My opinion has always been that the little rewind arm just isn't long enough.

    I haven't found it tight but the rewind lever is a right pain as it keeps folding up as you rewind. I also find it to be a little flimsy, fixed on the later cameras I beleive.

    Send it back for repair if still under warranty. Whatever is causing the problem may be adding wear and tear that will cause a mechanical failure sooner than otherwise encountered.
