"Home Base" is a large Pelican case but usually, my gear is spread out over a couple of different bags with one being for "walking around" and another for more extensive outings.

In my camera bag with both caps on. I usually keep one attached to my camera at all times.

Same here. It's also pretty dry in my home. Both caps on. In bag. Pull out and use when required.

A couple of dedicated body/lens combos--the rest in a pelican case.

Pelican cases.

One with my 7D, 100-400, Sigma 10-20, 24-105L and the Sigma 150mm OS. The 300mm only has to share the case with the 1.4 extender.

I buy a new one when I need it and then throw it away when finished.

It saves on storage space, and I do not need to remember where I put things.

50/1.4 is usually on the 5D2 - the 85/1.8 is in the Crumpler shoulder bag with the 5D2/50 & a 430EX which is my ''usual'' grab & go. the 24-105L is in the Flipside-whichever-model, which ever way up it is along with most of my other bits & pieces...... :)
I've just been messing with some freelensing so the 50/1.8 is on the 450D in front of me on the pc desk & the 18-55IS is on the floor :lol: ...it is mount end down though :ll:

I just keep them in the camera bag with another mounted on the camera. No cases or other things to get in the way.
