DIY Solution for Nikkor 18-200mm F/3.5-5.6G VR II September 28, 2009

Posted by Lawrence Oei in Editor Notes, Enhancement Gears.

Now, for those of you who owns the older Nikkor 18-200mm lens, here’s a piece of good news for you. I have just improvised a very effective double-purpose solution to prevent both lens creep and sweaty palms – Nike Terry Wrist band!

You just get a pair of them off the Nike retail outlet and slip it onto the lens barrel! That’s it really! Now, you can still focus by turning the lens barrel as before while maintaining a firm grip on the entire lens, preventing any form of lens creep. Try it and let me know.It works for me.

Thankfully, my lens doesn’t creep as reported all over the Internet on the 18mm position but will do so, when extending to 35mm. In a way, my sweaty palm (in very hot day shoot) can also now rest on the Dri-fit wrist band, taking those moisture away from the lens itself.
