To be fair, I don't know anything about the cameras you mentioned, my comments are based on cameras I used. MF is easier on Zenit-E, Canon 1-F and 1N compared to 450D and 7D. Period. Why not make the 7D as easy/clear to focus manually as the Zenit?

What is so hard about this? ....


The thing you can't easily fix is the 2/3 of a stop of light (1/3 of the total light is 2/3 of a stop) eaten by the autofocus system via a semi-transparent mirror.
