Bought back in September, one of the first batch so I don't know how widespread this issue is.

The grippy rubber has unglued around the top edge near the shutter button, and at the top of the thumbgrip on the right, behind the shoulder LCD.

Anybody else had the same?

(The guy at the Canon service desk seemed to imply this was a known issue with the adhesive used. But he could have been making out to know more than he does about this model, and just quoting the previous party line when this sort of thing happened on other cameras.)


I like making photos and sometimes I think I'm getting better... then I realise it doesn't matter. I like making photos!

The adhesives must not stick as well to plastics as they do to magnesium alloy. ;)

Think the first batch had used a poorer glue then the newer ones. I have seen it with first batch T2i also. It is a simple fix for canon to take care off.

by any chance do you sweat a lot, I remember reading somewhere that Nikon had a problem with sweat affecting the adhesives on their grip areas.

these rubber bits are just stuck on with double-sided tape...

whereabouts in the world are you? heat & moisture could likely affect the adhesive.

Yeah, I know a lot of Nikon users with grip rubbers falling off. Nikon naturally blamed the photographers for being too sweaty...

My grip is getting worse by the day. Basically the entire right hand side of the grip is separating. What is Canon's advice?

Every camera shop I've been into (OK only 3, so not a lot) the grip has been at least half off on the 60D. I know they obviously get handled and abused a lot when on display but considering every other camera on display (Canon, Nikon, Sony etc) had intact grips it didn't look too good.

I haven't had any issues with mine as of yet, no signs of lifting.

I took my 550D back to the shop yesterday for the very same problem. It took almost an year for it to start peeling off.
