Lens Creep when lower down or tilt up


#1
Hi All,

I know that this is a so call non-problem/faulty issues on those large zoom lens like 18-200mm, 24-120mm, they call it zoom creep. Does anyone have any ideas to fix these as I bring it back to Nikon, they told me that this is not a faulty thing at all and if I mind, they can tighten it until is make zooming not that smooth. Any comments....

Cheers

It called gravity at work as well....
there is generally no fix to this problem as it is as per my above sentence and the lens design.
There are however ways to get around this. Like holding onto the zoom ring or using a rubberband...etc...
