    haha! this sounds stupid and doubt if it contributes anything....
    i just buy the biggest one i could afford... cause a dry cabinet comes in handy for keeping alot of things... from head phones, tea leaves, electronics and also my photography equipment... sort of my cabinet to keep everything inside (:

    Stupid? I went from 30+ litres to 80litres to now 120litres and almost pack. Whenever I get a new unit,I always thought that the new one with 30% more space is sufficient for me, hence 3 sizes within 6 years. In the end I think I spent more than necessarily. I also used the dry cab to keep backup images DVDs, the manuals in prime condition (in case I need to sell off the cam or lenses) etc...therefore, taking up more spaces.
    What I really missed most, is my first SLR. An Olympus OM2 with the Zuiko 35mm f/1.4, back in 1982!

    have you consider getting an electrical dehumidifier running in your storeroom, installing gasket around and between the door and door frame and changing the handle to one that fully tighten the door? This way you get a "dry box" for all your needs. I'm considering doing one for my house since the existing storage door is already air tight

    Mine's a bomb shelter, cannot meddle with the 2 air vent (ahem!). Actually did thought of 2 x 400 litres for my reference books as well, still thinking.

    Electrical dehumidifiers use 100s of watts and sometimes are noisy and you also need to empty the condensed water regularly. Used to hv one to protect musical instruments.

    Just get a larger one. More space to spread out your gear, easier access and more riom for future purchases.

    Agree with Mod DD123 and Mod KW

    buy the biggest cabinet that you can afford, so you don't have to play Sokoban every time you want to take out a lens or body.

    glad i'm not the only crazy person~
    hahahah~ then again, i don't have that many equipments to store now... (:

    but with the humidity level here... it is advisable to keep whatever you've in a humid controlled environment... (:
    technically ANYTHING you buy.... hahaha~ so having a room with controlled humidity is good~ pillows, books, certificates, old photos, food.... hahaha... everything~!!!

    lenses don't take much space when packed tightly.

    get a carton box n do a trial run. u will an idea how much space you need.

    Empty extra space is a funny thing, it just get filled up in no time.
    The less u hv the better

    Actually, it doesn't need to be too big... I have only 1 digicab that is about 30L I think.

    I have:
    Nikon D750
    Nikon D7000

    Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8
    Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX
    Nikon AF 300mm f/4

    Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4

    All inside there.

    And a bunch of other small stuff.
