Canon has just announced a service upgrade for the EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D that replaces the camera’s mode dial with a redesigned locking version, similar in design to the EOS 60D. The new dial has a center button that locks the dial setting to prevent it from accidentally moving to another function.
The service will be offered starting on December 6th and will cost around $100.
The non-locking mode dial will continue to be installed at the factory for both the 5D Mark II and 7D. The locking version will be available only as a service modification, says Chuck Westfall, Technical Advisor at Canon USA.
