    Default Sigma 70-300mm DG macro lens problem

    Hi All Csers,

    I'm using sigma 70-300mm APO DG macro (canon mount) for only like 4 months..
    I wonder if anyone had encounter the zoom ring to be loose and tend to extend to 300mm when at down position..

    My friend had a similiar lens (nikon mount) and bought at the same time but his doesn't have the problem..

    So i would like to find out does anyone else had encounter such problem..

    Thanks

    Most zoom lenses other than those that zoom internally suffer some form of zoom creep. That's what the zoom lock is for isn't it?

    if its under warranty, just send for servicing la. if it doesnt bother you to use zoom lock all the time, then just use it

    Still under warranty and will be bringing to service..
    The sigma lens (canon mount) doesn't have zoom lock..
    :-)

    Wanted to get some feedbacks here..
    Cheers..

    I got the 70-300mm APO DG macro (wonder if it is the same). No creep at all. Very good images results and for the price, totally worth it.
