Looking at the pictures.. It looks like they are already using a "cartridge" based Thermistor.
On my E3D, I have some fibreglass sleeving on each leg of a thermistor bead.. The bead is pushing into a hole (Without the sleeve sliding back and shorting against the block) and then placed under a screw/washer, where its clamped down to stop it moving
Where as the "new" block just has a cartridge, so I assume thats whats already being used on the MK2S.
I looked at the build manuals for the MK2 and that shows the same block as me.. Where as looking at the MK2S it shows the new one, so i guess this was a stealth upgrade between the MK2 and MK2S.
