Zoom creep

From Nikonians Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This is "gravity works as expected" on older zoom lenses with a push-pull zoom mechanism. When carried, attached to a camera with the lens pointing downwards, the lens will move (barrel moves out) and change focal length.

Modern zoom lenses have a turn-to-zoom mechanism that are not prone to this.
