Actually yes, ruggedness was perhaps the wrong term. Really it's the awkwardness of film loading, which normally I don't care about, but for travel, it's nice just to be able to slap a film in the back and go. It's the same with Leicas, they're great, but for travel, I'd rather the convenience of a Bessa.

Mine is a Super Ikonta III, no meter, I think it's the IV which has the meter.
