As an avid photographer and self-proclaimed camera junky I was disappointed to find out that your store doesn't carry any LensBands. I recently purchased a Canon 18-200mm zoom lens from one of your stores in NYC. If you've ever used one of these you know that the main issue with most zoom lenses is that they have a tendancy to slide out on their own; causing the lenses to either disrupt your focus. Not to mention that it's just plain annoying!!! That's exactly what's happening with mine!!

 

Best Buy is usually really good at carrying the necessary accessories. This is one of them! Lens Bands are the perfect solution and it helps that they are relatively inexpensive. I called a few times to find out if Best Buy carried it at any of their stores. When I wasn't sure, I decided to just head on over.This is what I found out.

 

Down Side: Best Buy doesn't carry Lens Bands

Up Side: The sales associate there was so helpful. He wanted me to be happy so he referred me to another local photography store in NYC ( __ & __ Photo Video in Midtown) . Needless to say, they had it in stock! So cheers to Best Buy for displaying true customer service. Most places would have just told me that they didn't have it and then moved on. It's the extra steps that SOME employees take that really make it a great place to shop. So, BEST BUY... get some LENS BANDS and you'll be perfect! At least in my book... lol. Then I can have a one stop shopping experience and buy my lenses and accessories in one shot.

 

Cheers!

Not a gimmick, sooner or later all zoom lenses will need this. Some lenses need it right out of the box, others take some amount of zooming. Internal tolerances of little parts. Rubber bands and Yellow Livestrong bracelets might work, but I'd rather have the right thing on my expensive lenses. Glad I have mine.

  I bought a lensband for my Nikon 18-200 DX.  It put a stop to "lens creep" and was not intrusive in any way.  I recommend this product!

Love the lensband! I too have a Canon 18-200mm lens and it's a bit heavy handed on the tripod aiming down hills and upwards for sky shots. The lensband keeps it from moving and maintains the settings just fine. So Best Buy what are you waiting for? Get them in stock NOW!Smiley Happy

It works great and it's cheap, it does what it says it will and it's cheap, it works, it's cheap, I could go on but you get the point.

The bands fit well and I like the color they add to the camera.

Pros: Lens Bands work exactly as promised to stop unwanted lens movement. They stretch to various sizes to fit all lenses in my camera bag. My favorite are the glow in the dark bands which are simply genius. Especially when I'm out shooting long exposures, I can see all my lenses in pitch black darkness. Best of all, they are cheap to buy.  Cons: Wasn't available at Best Buy. Shortly after Christmas, I had a gift card and was hoping to purchase this from the Best Buy in Harlem. I didn't see them there and their staff never heard of it. I even looked on BB website and found nothing.
