Dear all,

After two months of having bought the D80 I went back to my beloved N80 bought in Dec 2001 and surprised because all the body (the rubber covering it) was sticky in all the surface...
I know and heard this is the first step of rubber to perish... then the next step is to crumble in small pieces
Have someone of you expirienced the same with N80 or other similar Nikon body?
If yes, any remedy / recipe to stop it?
I have it well storaged in a Lowepro Nova 4 bag with two or three packs of silica gel to prevent moisture although the bag is also storaged in a dry place.-
All my lenses are ok, no moisture problems....
Many thanks in advance for your feedback

Alex
