Mikiro, I have recently had exactly the same experience as you, acquiring an M5 and discovering that it is wonderful for hand-holding at slow speeds. My camera was a cheap 'user' and it is currently with Sherry Krauter for service, repairs and replacement of the viewfinder frames with the 'new' M5 set which, as you say, includes the 75mm frame. I'm afraid I haven't yet heard from Sherry what the cost will be, but I don't think it is going to be too expensive. I would thoroughly recommend Sherry (firstname.lastname@example.org) - it has been a pleasure to deal with her, and I have full confidence that my M5 will come back over the Atlantic in tip-top condition. Simon.
