I bought the plain 7 with a 65mm lens used. The only feature of the 7II that I wish I had is the double exposure. This is mainly for when I forget to take the lenscap off and I realize it before advancing the film. Other than that I think the 7 is a very good camera. I could not ask for a better meter. Mine seems very durable, it came with quite a few scratches on the body but everything works fine. So I would just look for a good price on either.
