"The lens creep has turned me off this lens"1.5 starson by FrancisM
Pros: Versatile, replaces multiple lenses
Cons: lens creep, expensive, heavy
Summary: I have had this lens for a year and have not used it for most of the year. While 18-200mm is a very versatile range, the lens creep is so annoying that I can't use the lens. I can't point upwards or downwards without it creeping. I can't walk around with the camera at my side for more than a minute or two before the lens creeps out. I sent it in to Nikon. They had it for three weeks and returned it in the same condition. I am much happier with my 24-120mm full-frame lens. It's too bad I was swindled by Nikon into spending $800 on this lens.
