OK. I'm pretty excited about something sort of trivial. As most of you know, "our" 15-85 can be prone to lens creep, depending on your luck or standing with the camera gods. I bought mine used so when I noticed it had the dreaded creep, there wasn't much I could do about it. The lens itself focuses perfectly, is sharp and has good color rendition, all the things we've come to expect.

I bought a lens band to solve the creep issue and while it works, it's a bit cumbersome. Someone here on POTN mentioned using an O-ring they got from Grainger Industrial Supply. They talked about having to twist the ring to get it to work consistently.

Long story short, I decided to see if I could find an O ring that would do the trick. I did. The Culligan replacement O-Ring OR-233. I got mine at an Ace Hardware Store for $4.00 or so. It's thicker so it just rolls in and out of place back over the manual focus ring. I don't even need to move it unless I want to manually focus because there is just enough friction to keep the lens from creeping but not enough so it can't be zoomed easily.

One man's solution. It's cheap enough to try it for yourself if you are so inclined. And for those of you with no lens creep, congrats. I'm not even jealous. ;)

Could you elaborate on this please? I just can't picture what you're doing in my head. If you could post a shot of it that would help. Thanks

I work weekends but here are some photos of one solution but where the O-ring is not as thick so it fits all the way into the space between the part of the lens that zooms out and the stationery part: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=992276

The photos are on the last page of the thread, depending on how many posts you allow per page. The solution I came up with is based on the one Mwsilver photographed but the O-ring is thicker so it covers more of the "v" than the thinner version. It works very well and it was only $4, though Will posted a link to Amazon where it was only $2, though I didn't check to see how much the shipping is.

I hope that helps. If not, I'll try to get a photo posted Tuesday or Wednesday. I work Sat-Mon, 12 hour shifts so I don't have much time when I get home. I eat and try to get some sleep.

Nice shot, but I had a look at it on flickr... does it seem a bit blurry in the centre but sharper on the sides?
