Rhodes,
My IIIf works that way with T, in fact that's how the manual says it should work.

As to 1/1000, it really isn't, is it? Plus mine has capped on occasion-oddly, so has my MX a few times!...

I've ran many many rolls through, sticking my uncouth fingers into the "little window" while using the brilliant T mechanism.

Well, Nick, you sure do get a fellow to thinking. After the last thread I near pitched in a camera to fund a G11 purchase, then changed my mind.
