I did that and found it to work but not be ideal.

On a L lens i really dont think this should be needed.

By the way, it's called "zoom creep", not "lens creep".

A "lens creep" is either a person who borrows your lenses, doesn't return them, or returns them in need of a good cleaning... or a person who incessantly brags about what great lenses they have. ;)

I'm sorry, but what are you trying to say?

Edit: never mind, I deciphered what you were saying after I got some sleep.

Sorry, i was just making a reference to being disappointed that any L lens would need a rubber band around it to ensure it worked as it should.
More specifically the 24-105L that ive owned (twice) that had lens creep.
