Re: Did I get a "bad" 60D?

Peeling rubber grips were a problem with some early 60Ds and there are a lot of messages about the problem starting late last year. I am surprised that you are seeing this problem now as it seemed to have died down of late. With the accompanying rubber smell you report, I am wondering if you bought a "new" 60D or a refurbished 60D?

In any case, if you bought new, this is clearly a warranty problem and since you're less than a week into owning the camera, you should ask Amazon for an exchange. That's one of the reasons to buy from Amazon. However, is it possible that you did not buy from Amazon but through Amazon from one of Amazon's many, many third-party sellers?
