Anyone keep their L lenses in the pouches?

mine stay protected in the closet. =]

My bag is pretty well protected with the standard lowepro padding, so why add an extra step when switching lenses? On a hot day, the last thing you want to do is spend more time sweating in between lens changes rather than getting the shot and finding some shade to take a break at.

if i had owned the 85L II, i probably would use the lens case as the size of that lens is huge!

I think those thin little draw string pouches are garbage. The only cases I like that are supplied with a Canon lens are the ones that come with the 300mm f4 and the 400mm 5.6. The other thing I like about those 2 lenses is the built in hood.

Never. The lenses sit on a shelf when not in use (no issues with humidity or large temperature fluctations in Melbourne, Australia). In a padded camera bag when out and about. If I had to pull a lens out of a drawstring bag each time I used it, I would hesitate to change lenses!

On the body or stuffed in the carry bag.

I use them when I shoot in countries where I don't want to carry a camera bag or camera backpack that screams camera gear. I use a small regular backpack and put the lens in its pouch... sometimes. Other times I just put them in the backpack loose. I have at least one lens in a pouch so they won't rub up against each other. If I use a camera bag I see no point in using the pouch.

New question! Why do you leave your lenses on shelves when at home, vs. just keeping them tucked away in your camera bag? I've been thinking of having a shelf built but right now, my equipment seems safest staying in my bag

Maybe I have too many lenses but I buy padded cases from Adorama and keep the lenses I'm not using in their case in my camera space at home. I live in one of the driest places in the US so I don't worry about fungus and mold. I dropped a lens once and it was destroyed and it's never going to happen to me again if I can help it. Have fun and keep shootin'. Mike

Easier to keep out of reach of little fingers, and to select what I am going to put into the bag before I head out. My messenger bag only holds half my lenses, so I choose differently each time depending on what I may be shooting.

Here in the tropic, the salt mist from the ocean actually kills everything metal or cloth or plastic.
I live now up in the 600 meters..here the problem is the humidity. So I keep everything I am not using at the moment in the Pelican 1510 with desiccants and take them out only as I use them.
My friend lost a beautiful set of Nikon lenses to moisture. I nearly cried seeing the fungus grow on the 2.8/200 tele...
What can you do once it is there?
He has a friend who does radiology.
Even gamma rays could not resolve his problem with the fungi.
Yeah. Do not fool around with your valuable stuff in the tropic.
I believe in Pelican for the time being and I cook the desiccants in the oven every now and then.
When they turn pink, that is.

For now, it is either out in the field on in the Pelican.
I have no money to throw away.
