| p.1 #20 · My D2X rubber cover peeled off |
As Ben Horne pointed out, never happens on the Canon Bodies, ever, and I own plenty of those too, so its very dissapointing it remains an ongoing sore point on the Nikon Bodies when it should be easily fixed
It also happens on the rubber lens focus and zoom rings on the Nikkors, and once again never on the Canons
The rubbers end up stretching on the bodies and the lenses, quite frankly you're wasting your time gluing them back, you need to replace the rubbers once they stretch as they never go back in place properly
Send in a D3 or D3S for a full set of rubbers out of waranty and see what it costs, you'll be horrified, I think they are about $155 AUD out here
They need to get it sorted, it lets down what is otherwise a great Camera (apart from the LCD Fog problem but we wont go there)
Are you all very very sure that it never happen to Canon bodies?
It happened a while back that Canon users were complaining about the same issue and I even pointed out that it even happened on their new models on diplay at their own showroom here. Canon finally took action to replace those units at their show room. Models involved 5D mark II and the 60D.
Check my old post and you will find it. In my post I did specifically mentioned that it is happening to both Canon and Nikon.
It is VERY uncommon for it to happen with Canon. I see a lot of pro bodies from both Canon and Nikon, and if I had to hazard a guess... I'd say 75% of Nikon's that are more than a few years old will end up having problems with the rubber grips. With Canon... maybe 5%. Nikon uses a different type of rubber. I prefer the feel of the nikon grips, but the thick Nikon rubber stretches easily, and gets very loose.
