I am a fan of the Tamrac lens cases. I have one for each lens that I own, and I keep them (along with a silica packet) on a shelf in my closet when they are not in use.

I use one of the pouches to keep a rocket blower and lenspen together in my bag.

Don't think I've ever actually used any of the pouches for the lenses they came with. This has had the unfortunate side-effect of causing me to lose them, but since they're unimportant anyway...

Not the original pouches. Lowepro or other when I'm using a belt or vest.

Yup, down the street from my office in Boston. Unfortunately, the local dickheads completely ruined it now.

If they're with me in my camera bag, they're nekkid. If sitting at home in the closet, they live in their pouches.

Remember, fungus grows best where there is no light and little ventilation.

Just saying. :)

My L lenses are in a pelican case and camera backpack case with the lens protectors on...ready for use. All the other stuff (bags, boxes, packing etc is stored away in a closet
if I ever decide to sell a lens).

I keep my camera gear in a normal dresser drawer when it's not in my bag. When they are in the dresser drawer, they are in the pouch. Pouches don't go in the bag.

My 135L lens pouch is too big, and it takes up too much room in the bag, even though I want it in the pouch in the bag for protection.

Well, there has to be a certain amount of humidity in the air, or rubber seals and things will dry out and crack, but an excessively humid environment will promote fungus growth, especially if there is no sunlight or moving air near the lens.

In other words, if you take a lens, cap it, stick it in the pouch or bag and then shove it in a dark closet, you POTENTIALLY encourage fungal growth. Spores can come from anywhere - it doesn't have to be humid or wet for them to germinate, but it does make the event more likely.

Those in very wet environs, or the very paranoid use dry boxes, which maintain an internal humidity based on where you set the dial. Storing your lenses with silica gel packets also works, and some silica is designed to be cooked in the oven until dry, and then reused.

I'm not saying that you will have fungus on a lens if you stick it back in your closet and don't take it out for a suntan once a month, but there is the possibility. Seeing as how fungus isn't a warranty issue, and these things cost a pretty penny, it's okay to be a little paranoid.

I usually just use a normal backpack when I go out shooting, so yes I'll keep them in the pouches for the extra protection.

Funny how the 100-400L always ends up in it's pouch. That's where I keep mine, because it doesn't fit in my Pelican 1514. I use the pouch for my 17-40 when I travel (all the time). I don't carry a dedicated camera bag, and I'm not going to roll the Pelican around town. I put two lenses in a messenger bag, and one on the camera. One of the lenses in the bag gets the pouch, and the other goes camando.


No, I'm not a professional photographer, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
