This is not the same as the "original M705". It is version 2. If you never had the original, you may not care. The ergonomics are still great and it has a good weight to it.
If you are replacing an older "v1" M705, there are a few differences that, while minor, you may not like either. Picture shows one of the differences (new on the left, old on the right). Size is the same, it's just the perspective that makes the new one look bigger. Differences are:
1 - the skates have changed. They are not as "smooth". Also, there are 2 in the front instead of one long skate. These are definitely louder than the old version.
2 - the scroll wheel is louder. Not a huge deal and it may get quieter with time... But it was disappointing to spin.
3 - there is no button on the side panel where the thumb sits. This was a nice addition that came in handy when mapped.

This is still my favorite feeling mouse, and I plan on using this one until it does like my other (which suffered with the "ghost doubleclicks" at the end...) I will just miss the old features.
It is my own fault I didn't look more closely at model numbers when purchasing, I shouldnt have assumed it stayed the same.
