It's a good idea to look at TLRs if you want to try MF. They are, in general, a lot of camera for the money.
How's the viewfinder? Is it bright?

I'm tempted on either the VI or the VII

Mine is fine, but it had a CLA before purchase. Some people find them dark.

I'll be reporting on the lens performance next weekend if you can wait…… .

No, but it's one to look out for. Aires were a well-respected manufacturer during their time.
