Looks like the poll shows a bunch of people with the peel.

The use of "bunch" might be to extreme. At least as of this writing 13 people out of 84 total have reported some form of peeling. That is slightly over 15% and like many unscientific polls on forums where complaints are often the norm, the results are very often baised toward the unfavorable.

Here's the deal (in my opinion), if you fuss around with the rubber grips on your camera, you can make them peel.... amazing how that works.

I don't have a problem with my 60D grips. I do have a battery grip installed and I use a herringbone hand strap. I found that not holding onto the camera with a death grip gives me better photographs so I hold it gently for that reason. That might factor in as well.

This is very true. Although a small and easily fixed problem, it is rather unfortunate that canon can't fit a grip on a $1000 camera.
Upon comparing photos, I don't think mine looks bad. Concur?

Next thing you'll be posting is a shot from an electron microscope trying to find something so that someone will confirm your worst fears.

Rereading this thread and started busting out laughing. Thanks for this funny commentary!

My 60D has this grip peeling issue. I just stuck a two sided glue dot where it was peeling and it's fine now. Pretty disappointing that something like this would happen. Kind of like the new Sony DualShock 4's and the flaking thumb sticks (if anyone has the PS4).

Another pet peeve of mine that has happened is also the LCD screen. Not sure if it's pressure from my nose on the LCD, excess glue inside the screen area, or my my nose getting alittle sweaty but my right hand side of my LCD seems to show some "pressure" has been applied there - like how when you push in an LCD screen it kind of shows "pressure points"... Not sure if it's a widespread thing but I hope Canon fixes it in their future DSLRs.

It hasn't migrated onto the LCD screen under the plastic cover but it's something that's annoying to see. I would've thought Canon had the smarts to seal that place up, but whatever. Next DSLR I'm buying ill probably put a bit of tape over that crevice to protect it.

How old is your camera? Please post some pics of the peeling issue if you can kindly do so.

Perhaps you really need to identify both cause and effect and then get a microfiber cloth to clean the LCD occasionally.

As you've stated john from pa. This user has a markins hand strap. You may be on to something.

No need to sit so high on your pedestal and treat others like they're below you. I clean the LCD more than occasionally. I'm just disappointed that it happens, not that I sweat excessively from my nose or anything. Sheesh.

Btw Frodge, the last photo you posted with the 60D is the exact location where my 60D peels and the reason why (it's not fully glued to the edge). I'm pretty careful with all my gear and am pretty surprised that it happened. Not that it's a big deal, but it's something that can be a quick and cheap fix from Canon on their future cameras that have this minor issue.

So you used glue dots? Never heard of them. Did you have to peel the rubber off to apply the glue dot?

I didn't like the smudges on my screen either.... and I am a person who can sweat profusely under the right circumstances. Living in Florida makes these circumstances occur on a regular basis.

I ended up buying an eyepiece extender and it made a world of difference. Canon says the Canon EP-EX15 II Eyepiece Extender is the correct one for the 60D but it's smaller and is really designed for the Rebels. I got the Canon EP-EX15 Eyepiece Extender (www.amazon.com/Canon-EP-EX15-Eyepiece-Extender-Cameras/dp/B0000AQI9E (external link)) and it's a perfect fit.

I took it apart and removed the "lens" so it's just a hollow extension without optics. That way, it doesn't affect what you see in the viewfinder. You do have to play around with things to get it to fit back together perfectly. If you are a bit handy, you'll figure it out quickly. I snipped here and there... added some gaffer tape to add thickness etc.

If that sounds too complicated, just clean your screen more often, I guess. ;)

I use a screen protector. Somehow, the matte plastic doesn't attract/show the smudges as much.

It's Fellowes WriteRight and it comes with 12 screen sheets. They have measuring/cutting guides, very easy to fit the back screen.

Invariably, you will trap some bubbles of air. Not for the OCD...
