I'm a long time Nikon user and the thing that drives me crazy is sticky rubber. All of my Nikon bodies have sticky rubber, the bodies inlcude: F5, F100, D2x, D800, D700 and D600 and I cannot find a cure for this problem. Do any of you know of a cure> I recently contacted Nikon and they replied that they no longer service my bodies and a third party might be able to help me. I asked Nikon Repair how to remove the stickiness and they didn't answer my question they skirted around it. I had a few bodies for sale at the local camera store before the Wuhan Virus/Pandemic and they didn't sell because of the sticky rubber. Why did Nikon keep putting this synthetic rubber on their professional bodies knowing the sticky rubber would be an issue some day? I was lucky enough to have my D700 serviced at APS a couple of years ago and the rubber was replaced but now the replaced rubber is sticky too, not as bad as the other bodies but it is headed that way! Since I can't sell them I'll probably donate them to a school or something similar.
