Thks for correction - plus a solution

Thanks Roger,
you're quite right, came in with the 40D (which also intro'd the AF-ON button).

Your thoughts re backward compatibility no doubt spot on. Checked the new 5DII grip and sure enough it has 12 pins rather than 11 for the 20-50D grips. Extra one would have to be for the AF-On button

Good news though, there's a partial solution, and I should have thought of it before

By using CF IV-2 you can swap the AF-ON and the * (AE lock) buttons. Then on the grip the * will act like the AF-On, of course you then lose the ability to lock AE with thhis button.
