Hey Mark: you probably know that the 75b is heavier and longer and doesn't have a rail. You can compare the Ps and Qs here: http://www.cz-usa.com/products_handguns.php. I've never shot one; however, I have a P-01 that I really like--in keeping with it's reputation. But you should look for the range reports of the P-01 made by ccw9mm on this forum. Good luck.

I'd have to give one to 75b stainless. Bought one last fall, have only put about 400-500rds through it. Have never had any problems with it. And I've used both cheep dirty ammo and reloads.

What do you want to do with it?

The 2075 RAMI is a half inch shorter than either the P01 or PCR. All three are just as thick as the 75 B. The 75 B is nearly one full inch longer than the P01 or PCR.
If just shooting, the 75 series will likely feel better on the range after longer sessions, given the added length, weight. Though, I know the P01 is no slouch. At just over 7" in length, it has good balance and ability to manage hot 9mm loads with easy follow-up shots. The 75's are even better, given the length and weight.
In terms of accuracy, the CZ's are known for it. I've got a P01 and it's more accurate than I am. Out of the box trigger pull can be variable, so I recommend a trigger/action job. They're relatively inexpensive. Holster makers have heard of it; so have gunsmiths.
Beyond ergonomics and the desire for the arrangement of controls (safety, decocker), it really comes down to size/weight. I like to think of all of these (above) as in the same family. They behave like it. The genes are there. Pick one and enjoy.
