    Not true...
    I had a Contax AF RF that allowed the leader to be left on rewind, and the Canon EOS 1 has this option also, along some more EOS Canons.
    There may others also from the 1980-90's

    And a few compact P/S also had this option.

    It was called a CUSTOM FUNCTION on these models.

    It seems NONE of the Nikon AF bodies from early on never had this option, even though other brands did offer it in the same era.

    BTW, I tear off the leader in an exposed film, so it easy to keep track of exposed and unexposed film. Leader = unexposed, NO Leader = exposed.

That is, unless I was using bulk film, which I loaded into reusable cartridges that were designed to be opened more easily than that.
    I tried that, when I had a proper darkroom... it took me over 20m to get the roll started in the Patterson Reels.
    So, I opted to "Pre-load" about 6" in daylight, then cut the lights and finish it. (1/2 way around the first channel on the reel)
    My motor skills are very bad with that kind of detail....

    Expect I just a Tamron 28-200 SD Nikon AF without an f/stop ring (G lens I think), So I need a proper Nikon AF to allow f/stop picks in A/S/M modes.
    I was hoping the F100 had that option, It looks like the F4 is my option since it has a manual rewind knob and auto rewind option.

    Never got that one.

    Silly me. And I still just wind up the leader into the cassette like a fool. Leader = unexposed, no leader = exposed.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!

    The Nikon F6 has a programmable feature that allows you to leave the leader out of the spool.

    Any Nikon AF FILM SLRs that leaves the leader out on rewind?-89010002.jpgWhat I used to do when I developed my own with store bough film was while manually rewind the film I would put my ear to the back of the camera to listen for the "scraping" sound of the leader listening to when it was near the canister. Yes the pre-loaded cartridges were easier to open when I bought 100' 35mm bulk. Also remember to mark the leader if it was short roll as I did not from a roll in 1997 out at the Air Force Academy on our way back from Philmont BSA Ranch/School to Denver. I pulled that roll out because I had a wedding never remembering to mark the leader and found it a few months ago in back of my sock drawer. I sent it in to get develop it was ugly color shift along with some 120 film that I recently used.
    Just my 2.
