Jared Polin's relatively new Z6 camera and Ephotozine's Z7 reviewed camera fracture the same rubber wearing off on the grip like the other reports: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVopIPokBEc&fbclid=IwAR30YDEu20TWznas87KI7lKjCa7iVTpTkIXTxfjhcjNy6vRqs6Q9nQbhu9M


I have a strong feeling until 2019 spring, most if not all Nikon Z owners who bought their cameras this year will encoder the same problems.

To me this is simply unacceptable for such an expensive equipment!

It is pretty crazy that this is happening, and I agree it's unacceptable. The question is, how the heck did they manage to screw this up? I mean they've been making bodies with rubbery grips for a loooong time. Did they just cheap out on materials or something?

Likely they were in a rush to get them shipped so didn’t cure them as long as usual out in the grip drying yard. I’m seeing this on my Z7 which I received on day one. Serial is 30019XX.
