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 ( - 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.
