    When I let my 14-140 hang by my side it has really bad creep. How do I fix this. It only concerns me that its hanging low and I will smack it into something. Any ideas are appreciated

    I've recently acquired one as well with some zoom creep when pointed down. It doesn't happen all the time though. When the lens is fully retracted and pointed down it extends a bit on it's own and stays there. Between 50-100mm it just goes up and down quite freely especially when walking around.

    I'm hoping others out there have a solution for this which preferably doesn't involve rubber bands. Maybe someone here has messed around with the screws on the lens sort of like this guy:
