    i'd say invest in a good dry cabinet....it is only 100 plus but it gives u a peace of mind especially with your lens collection......

    MMmm..... Not really BBB virus..... I tried a friend L lens and was impressed with built and quality.... and so, thought of getting one since my 70-300mm Sigma is a goner.... and need a replacement telephoto zoom..... It is a Film era lens, with very bad flaring, and CA.... so, have to replace it......

    I really like the non linear extension, non-rotating lens, internal focus of 70-200mm f4........ unlike most zooms..... such as 28-105mm.... My kit lens will serve me till I have enough budget for a 17-40mm, as I will get the telephoto first...... and it is projected in 12 mths time plus to get this 2 lenses.... so it is not really a BBB virus... BBB virus will not wait one.... lol.....

    I still believe that equipment is secondary to the skills of the photographer.

    MMmm.... I am planning not getting more than lenses....

    17-40mm and 70-200mm will be covering a lot with the 3 primes in between... and maybe a macro much later...... But it is good to make provision for more space......

    Just worry the list will grow to fill that space...

    eh.... i actually meant storhub. check out www.storhub.com.sg..... u may require to rent the whole storage space for your lens..

    will 60L be sufficient when the BBB virus is full-blown and your lens are coming in faster than the fastest shutter speed of your cam?

    I do not think I will buy a lot of lens.... Currently....
    Listed lens.... 24, 35, 50. 28-105. ef-s 18-55 5 lens only....
    Sigma and 2 kit lens are seldom used.... so might get rid of them.....

    In the dry box, my lenses will be facing "up", ie the rear lens cap at the bottom. However in the camera bag, the lenses will be facing "down", with the rear lens cap on top. This is to allow quicker swapping of lenses, I'll just loosen the rear lens cap, and all ready to transfer and change lenses.

    $5 k??? For which one??? All the lens???? I have the rest....

    I am planning for

    2. 17-40mm f4 ($1170)
    3. 100mm Macro f2.8 ($810)

    That will be around $3K..... but I am slowly buying, and will not rush.... should take around 18 months.... or more...... hope for BIG FAT BONUS this year....

    I heard some PRO when they shoot, they remove the rear caps... wonder if it will scratch the rear lens element??? Simply have the bag cover over the lens only....

    For me, I will not loosen the rear element unless I am changing lens......

    It allows for a faster lens change, I only do it if I'm on an assignment and I have only 1 body. If I'm shooting leisurely, I'd take my time to change lenses.
