Dey meg....Im using the Cressi Sub Ellipse Titanium, generally it's about the same as the MC5....its not the best regulator in the world
but here's some experience with the Ellipse Titanium (ET):

The ET 2nd stage has the same size & design as MC5 its light & no jaw fatigue even after long Confined Water sessions..No flow control inhalation adjustment knob ( another feature on MC7 ) which can be troublesome on maintainance.

The Ellipse range is a high performance balanced diapghram regulator.Performance at deep dives( 40 meters max ) is good . Air delivery is great even when tank pressure running low ( while air sharing too ).
It does a bit of free flow when in upside down position.

The construction is tough!....sometimes the Brickfields fella drop it accidentally ( almost everyday )  [-(
The Italianos are amazing designers...the Ellipse have a great touch of finishing & feel!

Its easy to maintain...just like most regulators, rinse with fresh water after the last dive of the day thoroughly, avoid soaking the 1st stage even dust cap on.
I will try to disassemble the reg after 100 dives but being at the island most of the time with no proper tool i'll service it evry 3-4 months whenever in KL....If you ever disassemble a regulator before then this 1 is easy  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
it can be service in KL by most Dive Center in KL , try to squeeze in while they're fixing it ....a lot can be learn!
Ellipse repair kit is available here & please check with sales person on it. Well i had to wait for 2 months from UFL ( authorised dealer in M'sia )....a mistake i did by not ordering kits earlier.

But recently there's a complaint about the 1st stage HP seat material...I noticed the filter is a bit scrappy / brittle  during servicing....

Overall its a rugged & simple High Performance regulator & serviceable anywhere  ;)
