The canon 7 is nice, but to me feels as big as a Leica M5, which I've never felt comfortable with.. The IVSB2 feels good but to me, it is a little too heavy as compared to the Leica IIIF.

I like my 7, but I would like a P better, except the P seems to fetch more than a 7 from my searching around. (plus the P has an accessory shoe, the first 7 does not, so no easy room to put a viewfinder if you want to shoot a wider lens).

The only major issue I can think of with the 7 currently is that it does not seem easy to find a professional repair person who will touch a 7. They seem to work on a P as the latest Canon RF they will touch.

Oleg has Canons in his repair list, but I don't know how good he is with canons. I've never used his service but he has a reputation on this forum.

Same here. I don't use my 7 anymore purely because of the large size. Really like the selectable projected frame-lines and I'm glad to see Bessa-R picked the idea up.
