Solution for Zoom Creep by Lens Band

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.

I found this solution on Amazon, it's a product called Lens Band. It's simply the best solution to fix my zoom creep issue.  I"m in love with my lens all over again.
