Re: Canon Repair Department ripoff

My 60D is doing this, but it's not bad enough at this point that I want to go to the trouble to replace the rubber. My daughters T2i did this very severely. I ordered the replacement grip and double sided tape from Canon. The total cost including shipping was under $20 and of course the time for me to do the replacement.

I do think that Canon has a quality issue with grips on some of their bodies as this sort of thing happens far too often.

I think the fact that we both use L-Series white lenses on these bodies on a regular bases may have contributed to the failures, due to the extra weight and stress on the grip. Maybe our 60D and T2i's should have come with a warning that using white lenses could cause early failure of the grip.
