Canon replacing mode dial with a new design, similar to Pentax K-7 & K-5.

Canon offers locking mode dial upgrade for 5D Mark II, 7D  Read whole article here:

Canon has announced a service upgrade for the EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D that sees the camera's mode dial replaced with a redesigned locking version. The new dial, which is similar in design to the one on the EOS 60D, includes a centre button that, when pressed, allows the dial setting to be changed. Otherwise, the dial is locked in position to prevent accidentally changing the exposure mode while the camera is carried.

So the design of Pentax on the K-7 and K-5 was indeed a great innovation.  It's nice to see Canon following and stealing great ideas from Pentax.  I take it that copying Pentax's design is the greatest compliment from Canon.

Thanks for reading.
