Here's the fix forthe 18-200 Lens creep
May 2, 2007


I have a very simple solution to the zoom creep that users of this lens seem to complain about.

I simply went to a hardware store with the lense and selected a neoprene 'O'-ring that fit the lenns ring as shown in the attached photo.

The ring simply provides a little friction at the joint of the lens body and the zoom ring. It is small enough that it does not get inthe way of shooting, and yet does the job so perfectly. The cost was only $1.00, so I purchase 3 and handed them out to friends who also use this lens. They all ended up quite happy at this simple solution.
