wil13jak: It has (I think) been eluded to that the cf cover and the rubber grip glue are bad on Nikons???? I have owned a D1, D2, D3, D700, D7000 over the years and currently and have never ever found either of these as problematic and I use my cameras alot and at times I'm not the most gentle. Hmmmmm
I have D70 and D200 and on both cameras I have serious problem with the rubber grip glue. I'm trying to take care about my cameras as much as possible however the problem started on both cameras after aprox. 6000 shots taken. May be it has something to do with agresivity of photographers sweat, but I thing this range of cameras could have it solved.
