I've had mine since new in 2006 and when I took it into Nikon for "repair" they said that it is the way it is designed and nothing they can do or will do to repair, especially under warranty, will help. So, as I've posted before on this topic, don't spend more than the cost of a bunch of Brocolli since this is what the grocers use to bind two bunches together - a wider rubber band that feels a bit more stiffer that stationary rubber bands, and it lasts a long time. It provides just the right amount of friction to keep the zoom from creeping, when you ovelap it to the stationary part of the lens, varying he amount on each portion of the lens to change the amount of friction imparted the the moveable portion as appropriate.
