Travel procedure with lenses

I typically travel with my camera body attached to a 70-200 using a backpack that carries my other lenses etc. I read recently that you should travel with the camera body not attached to a lens in case you drop the bag or something there is less of a risk of damage. Do you guys normally do that as well and then just attach the body and lens when you get you your destination and want to start taking photos? Thanks

Well ive never heard of that, and never do it.

Sounds logical, but i if you drop your back you could be damaging something anyways. So be careful and dont think too much about those things ;)

just depends on how you have it secured in your bag. if you have a setup in the bag that allows you to strap the whole thing down so it doesn't move, it should be fine. Keep in mind, the weakest link in the assembly _may_ be the mounting collar, so if you drop the bag, consider how it could land, and if that is going to put any shearing force between the lens and the body. If the answer is 'maybe', pack em separately.

Easy, just don't drop your bag.

People get so paranoid about "what if..." when it comes to travel. What if you fall down the escalator and tumble all the way to the bottom? Will it matter if your lens is on the body or not?

Have a good trip. Stop worrying about tiny details that are unlikely to ever be significant.

I imagine you would use some padding to minimise damage when you travel. That being said I would not lose any sleep on the question.
