Re: Got the new SDigma 18-250 Macro today (Pentax Version)

The only question that I have, how is the lens creep? About a year ago, my friend asked me to take some images at his birthday party using his camera. I can't recall the exact specifications of the lens other than it was a Tamron and either 18-200 or 18-250. The lens creep was terrible. As soon the barrel got below the horizontal, it extended. Since most of my lenses are internal focusing lenses, I wasn't used to the creep and it about drove me crazy. I can't count the number of times I banged the lens. I was just wondering.
