I'm looking for a convenient way to store the following:

-8 lenses, including two large zooms 150-500 & 70-200
-Two bodies with grips
-etc gear like a couple of flashes, mike, hoods, flash card pouches

Is there anything that will safely store all of this stuff?

Have you looked at Pelican cases? 1610 or 1620?

I have looked but I was not sure which would be the largest. Also, is there a concensus as to which is better: foam or dividers?

I would say Pelican cases with dividers. I have seven
of them and they are perfect for my needs.

Definitely the pelicans with dividers. I love my 1514. The 1614 or 1624 should do nicely for you.

Hi.

Just noticed the posting.
I have a brand new, never used, Pelican 1620 case with foam inserts.
Here is the item:
http://www.amazon.com …-Foam-Black/dp/B0014D2WJ4 (external link)

I'll sell it for $150 plus shipping. I Live in Southern New Hampshire so if you're close you can pick it up and save on the shipping.

Anyway, Let me me know. I have no need for it right now and it's taking up some space.

Thanks,
Brian

Well maybe its just me but I wouldn't put my lenses or camera on a case with dividers, I have a 1654 (with dividers) for my lighting gear and there isn't enough padding in the bottom of the divider box for me to be comfortable leaving lenses there, I would prefer foam even if they start falling out, or buy the dividers and then buy a foam sheet and cut it so that you can put more padding on the bottom.

Foam limits your ability to make adjustments as you add/remove gear. Dividers can be easily customized to fit a multitude of arrangements. If you're worried about the amount of padding, just slip a piece of small bubble wrap into the bottom of the case.

Any thoughts on fungus, etc due to sealing of the Pelicans? I live in high humidity!

I live in Alabama, so it can't be any more humid than here. I haven't had any problems, but I recently ordered a couple of their desiccant packs to suck the extra moisture out.

Yeah that's what I said about buying a foam sheet and put it cut into the shape of your dividers so you have more support.

Regarding humidity I bought these http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …0_500_000_Silic​a_Gel.html (external link)

Supposedly they can be "recharged" indefinitely (don't know if its just marketing) so I bought them because of that, other options just said 5 "recharges"
