BL3 and BL3 converted to a BL4

Hi just looking for some feed back on BL3's converted to BL4's. From what I can tell it's the view finder / optics are the main difference? Just wondering what if any, the difference would be between a factory BL4 and an upgraded BL3?

I know a lot of factors involved, but just looking for general feedback and comments really. Points of note, watch out for's, operator feedback, variations in conversations etc.

Thanks in advance.

Cetainly the viewfinder is the main thing, but I think there is a gain in silent beetween those two versions I'm afraid you may not get with a simple convertion.

As far as i know the only difference is the extra-bright eyepiece and Arriglow, but the 4S introduced a whole slew of changes such as quieter mags with swing-away rollers, pitch adjustment, external mag timing adjustment, lubrication-free movement and i think some subtler internal upgrades.
