    The back of my F90X melted too. It is stickier than glue. Disgusting indeed.

    Is the sticky effect the result of having a dry box with too low humidity?

    Check out with the 2nd hand camera shops, they got a special solution to clean the stickiness. Cost me $50 for the service.

    What's the solution? Trade secret...

    Arm....

    I don't think it is the effect by the low humidity.

    I think it maybe affected by your Sweat and Oil on your face and age also!

    Maybe lor!

    Nikon FM, FE and the likes are a big business mistake. They are built too lasting.

    From a business point of view, making less durable cameras means you the consumer have to upgrade every few years.

    Coz if you don't upgrade, it means no business for the company, then they will have to close shop (the Chinese say "eat North-western wind").

    My previous D2h had the CF cover replaced, and front/side rubber covers replaced in a span of 3 years. I have sweaty palms. It's the material, plus the humidity.

    But I must say, I prefer this semi-soft grippy rubber compared to the hard rubber on my D50 now.

    i think its our weather here in singapore. so humid. also try not to set the RH too low in your drybox.
    keep it between 45-55.

    D700 - (14-24 f/2.8)

    I hate being a human being, cos after living for a few decades they will malfunction and their bodies will rot and die.

    I think I will switch to being a diamond, cos diamond are forever.


    I also hate Nike, New Balance and many sports shoe (I love to collect sports shoes). I took care of them and never use them much but kept in my shoe box for a few years, last week I wore one of them and the sole split into two - what a disappointment.

    Haha! I'm also waiting to see whether Leica will have this issue of "sticky back".

    Anyway different people come across different situation when using different systems.
    Example: I'm happy with Olympus 4/3 system cams' grip but my friend used the 4/3 system twice, the grip don't suit him.

    Chinese lesson on direction:
    东南亚 = South East Asia and not North East Asia.

    The angmoh way is to say North-west, coz it is awkward to say West-North.

    Digress abit: Northwest Airlines (NWA) had to go 吃西北风, and merge with other airlines.
    So a seemingly harmless name spells doom for an airline.
