Creep Fix 2

Closeup of a solution to the "zoom creep" that is characteristic of the Nikon 18-200 VR lens. A 1x1-1/8" strip of 17 mil Gorilla Tape is applied to the bottom of the fully-extended lens barrel as shown.

 

The zoom action is now very firm, especially in the 70-135mm range, and there is no creep.
