Here is a clearer shot. Stil with iphone but more light. Should I be concerned about the edge near the focus point buttons. I have not tried to lift it, it a little higher in that little edge. THe best description is that it is not peeling, but it feels as though the rubber is 1/4mm longer going towards the edge than the double sided tape is. But the rubber is not stretched, it fits perfectly in the recess.

I wouldn't be to concerned at the moment. Yours looks ok to me.

I had heard rumors that the 60D peals easily, but never put much stock in rumors. And I do not baby my camera (do not confuse this with abuse) and have had it out in weather that made me concerned about its longevity.:lol: It's possible that I may have caused the problem in the first place. Once it starts it continually gets worse.

All the best.

That is basically what it looked like when I bought it, but them I started reading about peeling and started examining it. Camera is a couple months old and barely used so far.

Look how the tape for the front grip is fitted. If you feel you need to do this, it's not that expensive...

Well if it's a new camera, I'd have them replaced under warranty before it expires (assuming that they do start to peel). But, chances are it will look the same two years from now.

Mine was used with 9k when I picked it up. Very happy with it and now it has somewhere north of 43K. I will keep it until it dies.

Is the rubber supposed to be totally flush with the body?

You're trippin' So what if it peels a bit. That's going to happen occasionally. It's a Super-Rebel. ;)

Go take pictures.

Heck, I bought the new EOS-M half a year ago and there was one piece of plastic that was slightly loose and had nothing to do with picture quality.

Luckily, electrical tape is the same color. I applied it, and to this day that half-inch piece of tape stops that annoying click I was hearing when I pushed the shutter button.

Just use glue or tape and go take some pictures. The 60D is an old model. Put your mind at ease.

Last one. Maybe someone can post some of their own camera.

No pictures, but like jbrackjr, the rubber is very slightly above the mating plastic surface. Probably on the order of 0.020 inch or less. 1/64 of an inch, more or less.

POTN is a broad church; it encompasses so many areas of expertise with a cheerful and helpful willingness to share knowledge, no matter how trivial or inconsequential.

This thread has been a total delight.

Thanks for those photos. I think for now I wil just hold off as it is not visibly lifting. I see that yours looks like it is higher in certain spots too. Why canon decided to not make the grip the same height as the body is a mystery to me. It's no fun having OCD. Every time I take the camera out I feel like looking at that grip. Also if you look at at this guys 6 month old camera, if you look closely, you can see that the double tape doesn't go to the very edge of the rubber around the perimeter. Why do you think that they leave a small portion that the underside of the rubber does not touch the double sided tape? You can clearly see in this photo that there is a definitive 1-2mm part. The rubber tht has no glue residue;
Thanks for all the replies. Looks like the poll shows a bunch of people with the peel.
