7D/5D physical arrangement

Are there any photos around here of the 7D and 5D side by side, from the back? I'm thinking about the LCD viewfinder gadgets, like the Cavision and IDCPhotography, and Redrock, and wondering about whether their existing brackets work or if they'll have to make adjustments.

oops... just realized that was the 50D/7D and not the 5D/7D.

Heheh...yeah those buttons across the bottom confused me for a minute.

It's difficult to be really sure, but from Chris' photos it appears that the 7D has the LCD just a little bit lower, ie., closer to the bottom of the camera, than the 5D. That would affect the brackets the manufacturers produce, maybe.

Thanks! It does appear the screen is lower on the 7D.
