So, what I'm hearing is that you can still get (factory?) pre-loaded Minox cassettes reasonably commonly (although not cheap, at least in Canada), but would I be correct in assuming the same isn't true for 16mm or other sub-mini formats (other than custom preloads by the "Goathill" guy)?

As a potentially new sub-mini user, would I then be better off picking up a Minox? If so, which model? What about a Minox clone such as the Yashica Atoron Electro? Is a 16mm camera such as the Kiev 30 or Minolta 16 worth considering?

So many questions...
