The newer M7s have this as well. My first M7 (285xxx) had the old 
finder, which did flare. My next M7 (288xxx) is brilliantly clear and 
has never exhibited flare. I daresay that it's even better than my M3 
finder, but I'm ready to get pelted with rotten vegetables now.


p.s. Part of that is because the M3 finder has a blue tinge, which is 
supposed to improve focusing accuracy with the gold tinged focusing 
area. But it has the effect of lowering brightness a tad.
