What a curious offer

Canon is offering a different command dial for 5D Mk-II and 7D cameras…

How bizarre.

I can only think of one other instance of an aftermarket upgrade by CaNikon; the first batch of D3’s could be sent back to quadruple (or double?) the amount of DRAM onboard. Leica offered major surgery to go from M8 to “M8.1” (unlabeled).

I love the idea of upgrades but I don’t get it. A new dial. WTF? Does it mean that there is no new 5D camera for a while? Will new 5D’s shipping from the factory have the new dial?  Looking forward to hear more.
