Re: I tried it once and forgot the D200 :)

I have read many reports on the D200 having slightly weak sticky
tapes holding the rubber grip and that after heavy (but not out of
place) use it will start to loosen. That means either that you'd
have to use your fine crafting skills (that I happen to lack) to
put another back on or send it to Nikon, which always takes time.

I'd use some UHU on that grip to hold it down for good. Haha.

I once thought about putting a new grip on the D70 - abandoned the
idea when I remembered that the grip was already that big

I see.

Oh, I forgot the scroll dials altogether! They're very much like in
D200 and I like it far better than the sometimes slippery D70
dials. The only thing that bugs me is that the front dial is
situated a bit to the right compared to D70, which I will have to
get used to...

To the right of the front of the camera or the opposite?

And one more thing.. I don't like the material on the internal
flash. It feels too light - of course it means faster response when
it jumps up. And... Perhaps it goes to tell something about the
build quality that I'm complaining about something like this..

You mean on the D80? How would the material there be any different from the rest of the body?
