I second Karen on the Rich and Kit recommendation.  As a matter of fact I posed your same question to Kit earlier - too bad I don't remember exactly what she said.  Maybe she'll respond to this e-mail.  As best as I can remember, she said something about a slight color tint to the viewfinder - I 'think' it was slightly bluish when compared to the older viewfinders.  Of course, my recollection could be completely wrong so take it with a grain of salt.

The rumor was that M7s with serial numbers greater than 285xxx were 
upgraded. This was false. My 285xxx unit had severe problems. It was 
replaced with a 288xxx unit that is working fantastically. So get a 
unit in the 288xxx range and you should be great.

I can highly recomment Kit McChesney of Acme Foto or Rich Pinto of as sellers.e
