Actually the best fix is the "silicon" wrist bands that are so popular for promoting awareness for causes and other charitiable events. One of the most common one is the yellow Lance Armstrong "Live Strong" wristbands. If you do a search on Google or Amazon you'll find a plethora of retailers selling all kinds of colors and some do a custom lettering. I ordered two black colored bands with "Nikon" printed on it for something like $4 (US) each. Fits perfectly on the 18-200mm and the black blends in so well that everyone thinks its part of the lens! This simple solution completely eliminated lens creep.
