I don't own this lens but I do own the 15-85 which is prone to lens creep as well. I addressed and solved the problem with 2 O rings. I use a combination of a smaller diameter one and a larger diameter one. When engaged, it works like a lens lock so when I'm walking around, I have it locked and when I'm shooting on a tripod with the lens pointed down, I lock it in place after I set up the focus length I want. I keep the smaller one in place and rotate the larger one off and on. On my 15-85, it rolls onto to the manual focus ring.

I use the Danco Stock no 35705B (2-3/16 x 2 x 3/32 #89 O-ring) and the Culligan OR-233 O-ring. Both are available at my local Ace Hardware store but I know the Culligan O-rings are available lots of places since they are for a common water treatment product.

I'm not visualizing this. Could you please post a picture of the O-rings in action?

Thanks.

This is a fun read folks. Over on DPR, someone said they sold their 28-135 for the Tamron 28-75. I replied that I had done the exact opposite. I had sold my Tammy 28-75to get the 28-135. I explained why I thought the 28-135 is simply better, better sharpness, better contrast by a mile, better, more vibrant colors. So a bit of a debate came up, then someone posted a comparison between the two and guess what lenswon big time? Enjoy this quick read and you will be proud of your 28-135

I don't know about 28-75 but my 28-135 does nice job for me. I was thinking about sell this lens (bought for only $200) and buy Sigma 50-500 for combo with 17-55 but no,I will keep this lens and buy 150-500 (it's cheaper but still good)

Wanted to post the link to the test in case anyone doesn't see it in the dpr thread. Just look at the difference in corner sharpness between the two. The4 28-135 just kicks that Tammy's butt really bad. Then look at the difference in contrast. The 28-135 has darker blacks and lighter whites, watch the difference as you switch between the two. And this doesn't even compare the colors, where again the 28-135 just kicks butt. You can see that by going through the two sample threads. The 28-135 colors are much more vibrant, rich, and they don't step on each other. I knew I loved my 28-135 and was very glad I sold the Tamron to get it,and it is awesome to see that the test shows exactly what I had perceived by looking at the two sample threads.

Here is the comparison.

^^ Wow, unreal quality to that pic and clearly shows me why this lens is such a great deal for a mid price lens. I don't know of any zoom that I would be happier with for the price. The clarity of that contrast is simply beautiful It just renders so nicely.

Wow, love them. Against, great contrast and as usual shows me why I love good contrast in a lens. Makes the photos so realistic and clear.

That is a really nice shot. I really like all of the shades & textures of blue.
