Bob,

Do you think the RO rangefinder is any better than the one in the Mamiya 7?
Just curious.

Not really.  They're completely unrelated designs.  In fact the Mamiya 7
(and 6) rangefinder isn't as good because the Mamiya Company was too
stubborn to license the Omega rangefinder design from Henry Froehlich, who
holds the patents.
