    Lens Creep

    My 7 year old EF 24-105 f4L has started to creep when using it in a vertical position.
    If looking down at 24mm gravity will move it out to 105mm if not constrained which can be a bit of a nuisance. If looking up it goes the other way!

    Does anyone else have the problem and, if so, how do you prevent creep other than a wide rubber wristband round the barrel?

    Mine behaved like that from new - I believe it to be a general characteristic of the lens

            I’m a bit late to this party

            My copy does this it only becomes a problem when pointing the camera vertically either up or down to compose your image, I don’t do many straight up shooting but I have on occasions laid on my back to get a shot of a church/cathedral roof

            I ’m sure this is the norm for the 24-105. I believe it is also one of the causes of a ribbon cable failure within some copies of the lens that created aperture issues and the fix for that was a replacement of the ribbon cable.

            I have read some online reports that Canon Repair Centres have made adjustments that tightened the zoom mechanism to people’s copies of the lens.

            A cheaper option is to fit a band (think wrist band) around the lens, even cheaper option is to just ignore it if you can.

              Thanks for all your responses. It’s good to know that I’m not alone with this. I don’t do many shots where it happens and will carry a wristband in my bag in future.
              I did have a ribbon failure on holiday in France in my film days resulting in me buying a used nifty fifty in Lyon to keep me going. I’ve still got it!

                I've never noticed this on mine but then I'm usually holding it! I always support the weight of my cameras by holding them under the lens.

                  Good point but this happened when I was shooting vertically down using a tripod.
                  It appears to be common with this lens.

                    That is annoying...especially when using a tripod as you say.
                    The new RF version has a lock but that only works in the 24mm position....but the barrel is pretty tight, maybe just not worn yet.
                    I would have thought it is bad engineering to use the ribbon cable (designed for electronic comms) for mechanical resistance of the zoom.

                      Maybe this could be the reason to update all my stuff to Mirrorless + RF lenses....................now that's a thought!

                        That’s a very good idea...unless you do lots of action shooting.

                          I've had this lens for over 10 years and never noticed a problem. However, having read this I started taking more notice over the past few days on my walks. When it's being carried over my shoulder, it definitely does extend out. When I'm actually using it, even pointing vertically downwards, it seems fine.

                            I think some lens creep when being jolted by walking is inevitable....the mass of the internal lens and acceleration and thus force due to gravity will give movement without some sort of mechanical lock.....probably good for another 10 years I'd say.l
