I would suggest you look a the 5D MKII review on dpreview. They have a body comparison and you can see how much the buttons have moved. Memory tells me the MKII has a larger LCD as well.
Good luck on your efforts, I am sure there are others that would be interested in the success that you have.

Yes, the modification can be done. I've done it, and have access to nearly all the controls (certainly all the important ones). There was a thread on it here a couple of years ago, and I explained how it was done. I can't seem to find it now though. It does require some machining, adding new buttons and modifying existing controls, so you need to be confident with making new holes in the housing and adding watertight controls. If anyone else can find the thread, please add the link!

That is exactly what I wanted to know. Thank you so much. I am a little bit apprehensive because I have never drilled plastics before but I figure if it will save me 1400$ its worth a shot. If you have any more tips I would really appreciate it. Also, will TTL still function? Thank you again you have been a huge help.
Here you go- this is the thread: in the DIY forum.
