    Suggest you get one dry cabin if you have several lens and bodies.

    You can also get air-tight container and put silicon inside. Though cheap and good, you need to be discipline enough to "fry" the used silicon [ie after absorbing moisture] regularly. Frying is to remove moisture and re-used the silicon. Silicon can be purchased at photo shop... not sure about the price now but rather cheap. I have done that for more than 20 years but switched to dry box 3 years ago since dry cabin is affordable nowadays. Carrefour does sell 3-tier dry cabin at $99 previously. Suggest you look around for what you need.

    I don't think we should waste our time trying to give him good advise.

    You would need it consider the fact that we are living in a tropical country with high humidity and of coz the life of your lenses and camera.

    You would not need it if you want to change your equipment frequently. I mean spoil and buy new ones.

    Hope this helps.
    Let's get rolling :)

    Depending on how much you treasure your lens. Do you mind having fungus in it?
    As for me I keep my lens tucked in the dry cabinet. One should even store P&S into
    the dry box/cabinet as it's susceptible to fungus as well.
