I've been running MT7 brakes for the last year and MT5's on my other bike for 6 months. I bedded in the MT7's to the letter, doing the process for front and rear individually, and they have been awesome. I found that the Performance pads wear quite quickly (gone through 4 sets on the rear and 2 on the front), but they work really well down here in SoCal (born and raised in Vancouver, so I know what kind of weather you're dealing with). I half assed the bed in process on the MT5's and also had poor performance, until I did it properly...I weigh 220lbs Magura USA want almost $40 a set for MT7 pads, but I found they can be had direct for Germany for $15, and I bought my MT5 brakes for $80ea direct from Germany as well. AT $80 the MT5 are a real value, and replacement levers can be had for $30 rather than $60 we get gouged for here. Zero issue bleeding either set, by just doing the quick bleed from the lever.
