Does this include the front & rear caps, hood, instructions, and box? Also, does it have the lens creep?

yes to caps... yes to hood... I will look in the box if the instructions are still there...

Yes with the hood on if the camera and body are bounced (ie the camera is hanging from your neck well walking) it will creep. There is a lock... if locked it will not creep.

All of them developed creep after minimal use. That's why Pentax put the lock on there. Mine creeped after the first 2 weeks of having it.

Oh yeah, mine creeps me out every time I use it. Can't believe it's just one lens!

I put a 2cm strip of black gaffers tape on the top and bottom of each segment of the lens barrel that extends and it completely stopped the lens creep. It also did not alter how smoothly the lens would zoom or interfere in any other way. To whoever gets this gem I would ask the local camera store for a small segment of paper tape and apply the same solution.
