A number of owners of cameras like the D7000 complained that the Mode Dial was too easy to turn accidentally.

Maybe not. I find it quite simple to adjust the Mode Dial - even with its lock button - with one hand whilst wearing the winter golf gloves I referred to in my earlier post. I press the lock button with my forefinger and rotate the dial between thumb and second finger.
