[James Ewart] "what would they be compared to FCP7?"

Mostly it's the little things. No "close all timelines except this one" command, no ability to copy and move a clip in one stroke as in FCP7. The TC indicators waste space by showing empty tracks and lack the color coding that indicated when tracks are in sync. In FCP7 whenever you entered a time code number into a field, you only had to enter the numbers you wanted changed, so that to enter a "go to" command to 1:12:37:10 if you were currently at 1:12:12:05 all you had to enter was 37:10, in Ppro you have to enter the whole number every time. The command for "joining all edits" is ridiculously complicated, there are still some bugs with aspects of switching audio when editing in multicam ... it's a bunch of little annoyances, but I'm easily aggravated.

On the other hand there are some truly amazing and often unexpected treasures that more than make up for it.
