While I like many of the features of my D7000 compared to my D300 I have found one rather annoying feature. The mode button has a tendency to shift from A to M seemingly by itself. While I am sure that it is actually me accidentally turning the knob it seems to switch from A to M at the worst times with a resulting under or overexposed image. I'm at the point where, before I start shooting, I am going to set a proper exposure in M mode just in case the dial accidentally gets turned while I am shooting in A mode.

The dial doesn't seem to be overly fluid (and subject to an easy flip from one mode to another) in that I can feel a small resistance when I switch modes. At least on my D300 I have to deliberately depress the mode button and then turn the command dial. I have never had it go from one mode to another accidentally. Is this a common issue or am I just being clumsy?
