I have had that on a couple of my Nikon dslrs, I just use rubber glue (the same you get to repair tyres, its all Nikon would do and charge loads for


easy to wipe clear too as its quite elastic if you smear some or spill some

I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WOULD NO LONGER BE WEATHER PROOF

I used a tiny, tiny drop of superglue on one of mine.
The tiniest amount will do as it runs into the joint unaided.
I doubt that peeling rubber grips will affect the weatherproofing; they're just stuck to the outside.
. . . aren't they?

Small blob of superglue (ordinary regular super glue) behind a small tab of leather on my camera fixed the job. The leather is typically not part of the weathersealilng, its stuck on the outside and generally there for visual effect and to provide grip when holding. A dab of superglue will fix it up and that's generally what was on there in the first place holding it in place.

If its glued back on firm water shouldn't get under it anyway.
