I am pleased that I bought it, but at current prices I can see why someone might decide the $400 difference between it and the old 7 is not worth it.
My options as I saw them at the time were to just keep using the 7 II, or buy the 7 III, 5 II, or an M 50 for travel. I had used the 7 in Denmark and Sweden that June very successfully. The new models came out before my fall trip of over two weeks in Italy followed by a 14-night Mediterranean cruise. I took the 7 along as a backup. I accidentally took it out of my bag when I went out in the afternoon after arriving at my room in Rome. Otherwise I didn’t use it. I think the 5 outdid itself on the pictures I took of Venice at night from my balcony on the moving ship.
I doubt you will learn that much about the differences by looking at my pictures, but you are welcome to view some of my Scandinavian pictures taken with the 7 and the Italy and cruise pictures, all but the first few, from the Spanish steps on, taken with the 5. Of course these are reduced JPEGs for the web taken from the original Raw files.
