have you tried any other LTM bodies? i was always curious about the 7 and its variants, but the small footprint of the barnack copies always lured me away.
My 7 has a much better viewfinder than the IIB, IVSB2 and less so, the VT I have. For a user, the extra bulk is well worth it, IMO. I generally use my 7 with a 50/1.2 so the weight is almost always there.
I just got a black 50/1.8 Canon lens so I may change my mind about the smaller setups after using that lens for a while.
