Thank you for your e-mail. I'm afraid that what you have heard is internet nonsense indeed. The zoom creep effect will just get worse over time - the service centre can correct it so it goes back to how it was at the beginning of the product's life, but that's all you could hope for in this case.

Kind Regards

Hello, I own the 18-200 VR lens. I understand from a website that you now have a fix to stop the lens from creeping. Is this the case or just Internet nonsense? Many thanks.
