"The creep is a joke!"1.5 starson by goodeyej
Pros: Great range.
Cons: The lens creep is unbelievable. In this day and tech age, this is a product that should never have left the drawing board.
Summary: I can't believe Nikon would release a product with such a major mechanical malfunction. The lens "creep" is a pain in the backside. Try to do a tripod shot for a product shot or any shot with the lens pointing down. It will drive you crazy when your trying to frame and focus a product shot or any shot with the lens pointing down and the lens won't stop moving. Just carrying the camera with the strap over your shoulder will make the lens creep out to it's 200mm length allowing it to bang around. I've been shooting with Nikon gear for 30 years. I am beginning to see why Canon is winning the DSLR wars as I hear the techs at Nikon tell me to just not point the camera downward. Whoppy do to you Nikon.
