The main worry, was that JP service in the UK emailed me back saying "we no longer have spare parts for the dynax 7"
Now if that just means the focus screen, or other parts...no idea.
Other than that issue (why minolta made the 7 screen such a hassle to change, nobody will ever know), it's a fantastic camera overall, and a pretty good price as well. Long time since I used a 9, so hard to make an objective comment on that front.

A 'mole' within Sony tipped off Camera Repair Workshop, a Milton Keynes based independent repairer who did all the overflow work for KM (ex-Minolta staff). They raided the skips for whatever they could find but were not able to recover all the parts stock. JP Solutions never got any because of this negative and destructive action by KM. Try Camera Repair Workshop - I do not know what they retrieved, but they may have more parts than any other repairer.
