Anyone keep their L lenses in the pouches?

I'm pretty sure all L lenses come with that little draw-string lens pouch :p I was wondering how many of you guys actually use the pouches, and under what circumstances? Do you keep your special L glass in a pouch while its also in a camera bag? Or is that considered slightly too over-protective, and you don't use them at all? :)
Trying to decide if I'm a little too OCD and if I should just stop using the lens pouch for my 85L - my 24-105 certainly doesn't get that same degree of special treatment :lol: :o Maybe some people use them when traveling, while the lens is also in another bag? I don't see how much "added protection" they really offer though, so I don't know why I'm so OCD about it, haha...

The only L lens that I have is the 70-200 f/4 L IS and I never use the pouch. It's mostly on the body anyways. peace out.

I usually find the cases just kind of burn up time. It looks nice, but I don't think they're necessary and after a while they become annoying.

Just my opinion.

I use the gray or silver case when shooting group shoots at sporting events so when I change to the short lens I can put the 70-200 or 100-400 in it and it is protected. Then I change out and keep the case and short lens on my shoulder.

I don't even take them out of the plastic bag or the styrofoam containers that they came in.

The pouches that came with the lenses are all stuffed into the box my body came along with various other accessories. I store the lenses themselves in a backpack and shoulder bag.

I just have my 100-400 in my bag. No need for the pouch.

Wow Todd, you live dangerously!

I buy lenses but leave them at the store. I want maximum resale value! In fact, some of my lenses have been sold three and four times! ;)

:oops: I use them....In fact, if I have a lens that doesn't come with one, I buy one for it. I like em, they don't take up space in my bag and keeps them from getting dinged up. Then again....I'm not a big time pro like you guys....^^lol

I put the 100-400 back in its case always. Then I hide it nowhere around the camera bag. I know somethings wrong with me.

But I like leaving the 28-135 on the camera just in case I need to grab it and go.
