Does anyone know if the Nikon 35-70 F3.8 D has zoom creep when it's new or is this something that happens with a lot of use?

Am guessing its with lots of use. Mine is quite old, but doesn't have any yet

Well I presume its a velvet type friction on the barrel so it would need stripping down and whatever it is replacing

No, what If you know, please tell. I haven't stripped one down so I was taking a stab in the dark

Mine is an 80's vintage that has been used a lot and has zero creep.

Obviously the only creep here is the one that yelled NO and didn't bother explaining.
I've heard of people using tape or rubber bands to help with the problem.

Mine had creep and I solved it with a small thin piece of tape. For the price I paid, I didn't bother. An excellent bargain lens.

Thanks guy for your responses. This is my second one from E-Bay. The first also had a problem with the stop at 35mm. This one has a very slight rattle, but a little less than the first one. I still have a few days to return it. It is very clean, but a little loose for my liking.

Then seek out one from KEH....nice warranty/return policy. eBay's just too hit and miss,
my time's worth more than any perceived savings.

Back in the '80's, Nikon offered 3 f2.8 zooms aimed at the PJ market. They were the "holy trinity" of the day. The 20-35, 35-70 and the 80-200 push/pull were found in just about every PJs bag. I said goodbye to film but I still use the 20-35 and the 35-70. I never liked the 80-200 due to the lack of a tripod collar but added the 2 ring version as soon as I could afford it. All three still serve me well.
