Just make sure if drilling you have a vacuum running so any dust gets sucked away and can not find its way into the camera.

Drilling a switch! Man you have some guts, I still haven't recovered from cleaning my lens for the first time yesterday :) I always used a UV filter with my Canon and was quite harsh in it's treatment, but as I don't have one for the EX1 yet I've been putting off touching that front element.

This is why I am not going to drill anything - just a nice (black or silver) knob glued to the slot in the switcher is the way to go, IMO.

This has nothing to do with the topic it is attached to but simply a question as to how I get to the que that lets me post a question. I guess I am missing something that is probably obvious but apparently I am.

I may glue too but there is not a lot of area to bond to and a small hole might just add some strength. Like the post for a tooth crown was what I was thinking.

I agree the the slide switches on the EX1 suck. They are not only hard to operate it is hard to tell their position. I did the following to the power, iris, macro, and focus slider switches to at least make their position more discernable. I put some "Liquid Paper", the white fluid used to correct typed or copied documents, in the vertical groove in the slider. At least one can then better see the position of the switch.

You could also use white paint. I just happened to have the Liquid Paper handy.

Maybe I'm wrong but I believe doing any kind of mod to the camera regardless its simplicity voids the warranty.
