As an engineer I have to say that your response is mind numbingly idiotic. Adhesive used around electronics doesn't disolve and magically find electrical contacts to disrupt - in fact adhesive designed for electronics like the type they likely used doesn't even conduct electricity. Furthermore electronics adhesive is insanely durable. There are different sorts of electronics adhesive but in many designs they actually use the adhesive to hold the parts together in favor of metal screws. Read that again, they use the adhesive instead of screws made of hardened metal because it is more durable. The life expectancy of most electronics adhesive is 20-50 years... when directly exposed to the elements 24/7.
As an engineer I agree, that stuff is crazy tough. Additionally, I happen to have rolls of Red engineering electrical tape. Notice that folks, RED - nicely color coordinated with your L lenses.
I'll take replacement tape orders, only $499 per body, prepaid.
(I can already hear it now "but won't that throw off your white balance?")
