I just bought a used EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.
I got a really good deal because I was able to bid down the price as there was dust in the front barrel and because the lens exhibited noticeable zoom creep. Other than that, the lens is in perfect optical and cosmetic condition.
Basically, I intend to clean the dust out by following this video:Canon 17-55
and I figure that if I am already going to be opening up the lens, I can try to fix the zoom creep as well.
I tried finding information about this particular lens, but I was not able to find much that was helpful.
Does anyone know how to fix the zoom creep on this lens, or can you point me to a resource somewhere? I am comfortable ordering parts if I need to.
P.S. I know there are lensband/rubberband solutions, but at this moment, I'm not interested in those.
