Further to the recent service announcement regarding the aftermarket modification to the mode-selector dial on the EOS 5D Mk II and EOS 7D, a spokesperson for Canon has confirmed to the Digital Journal of Photography that the modification can be carried out by the Canon Repair Centre at Elstree at the following charge.
EOS 5D Mark II - £59.95 + VAT
EOS 7D - £63.39 + VAT
Both these prices include a £5 delivery charge which can be removed if the photographer wishes to collect their camera in person.
As this is a new modification Canon advise that photographers contact Canon Elstree to pre-book and arrange a suitable modification date, by calling 0844 369 0100 (Select Option 2).
Canon can't confirm the price third party repair centres will charge for this modification, and neither can they comment whether this change to the mode dial, currently a feature of the latest model, the EOS 60D, will be incorporated into future production.
