I have an Agfa/Ansco 5x7 being given to me tomorrow. A friend doing closet cleaning. I am surprised how excited I am waiting for it. I have never shot 5x7, only 8x10 or 4x5 but I have a stack of 5x7 holders and even 5x7 film in the freezer. A new trick for an old dog.
5x7 is fun, the size and aspect ratio can make absolutely stunning little contact prints.
I was gifted by an old friend her late Father's early Leica M3 DS with a nice 5cm f:2 collapsable Summicron, a 9cm f:4 Elmar, and 3.5cm f:3.5 Summaron along with a Leica meter MC. It's a little rough around the edges, but works very well and I tested the shutter and it is pretty close to speck on most of the speeds. Now I just have to shoot some film.

I like stories like this! A significant gift. Might need a CLA though, but fabulous all the same.
