I wouldn't expect there to be, but I would expect that you could order the
camera with a WLF or a prism, with a case, or without, with a particular
screen, and, with a 12/24 switch or not.

That's what I figured, which would mean, at least to me, two things.  It was
really meant for previously sold cameras, which would mean it wouldn't have
been an "orderable" option, and two, that if you wanted an "orderable"
12/24, you would get the later one with the raised side cover.
