Can you be proactive in preventing your lens from getting zoom creep? Or is just the nature of the beast with some lenses?

Nothing you can do. Its a combination of heavy front elements and the barrel and zoom loosening up over time. Some zooms get it less, like the 24-105mm and some are famous for it like the 28-135mm. Its partially the luck of the draw. Some examples of a particular model may creep much more than others.

Old thread, new answer.

Using a lens band will help prevent and will "fix" ZC if you have it.



Ain't nothin but a thing.

Your a bit late to the game :-) This has been discussed dozens of times on more recent threads. I'm afraid its not really a "new" answer. When I answered the OP's query 3 years ago I was responding specifically to his question, and that hasn't changed.
