    creep will not be present when its brand new but will be more significant with prolonged usage

    lens creep also refers to the lens zooming out of the barrel due to gravity when u point it face down

    That will happen in most of the 18-200...

    By adding a filter...the creep is more obvious...cause its heavier...

    Maybe I suggest is to rent the lens out one day for a test...
