My D70 and F65, with 2 lens, were kept in an airtight container with silica gel put in for humidity control. Call it my home made dry box. Last month, I found all the rubber grips on the camera and lens have become "sticky". No amount of cleaning could fix it. Took all of it to the Nikon Service Centre in PJ and was told all the grips had to be replaced. It's costing me a bomb!
Need some advice from the sifus out there: what's causing this "sticky rubber" (or is it really polyurethane, PU), and how to prevent it from happening to my other camera and lens? Could it be PU degradation?
