    currently i use air tight box with some silica gel to store my camera. But I guess when I have more lens, I would need one.

    be it a dry-box with drying agents or the electrical option of a cabinet or without it depends on how u treat ur stuff. oso must know if got space for them anot.

    if u just started out, do think ahead if u may be getting more lenses & other stuff that may go may go into the drybox as well.

    have u seen the "light" yet?

    When I first started photography, kept my cameras in my cupboard and those silica-gel box. Not disciplined enough to check and refresh the dessicant. Most of my lenses ended up with fungus. When the first dry boxes were marketed, I bought one. Never had any fungus infected lens since then. My dry box was bought about 10 years ago and still working. For me it is essential and necessary.

    Silica gel seems to turn pink very fast. Troublesome to change every 2 weeks or so. Thristy hippo is a better alternative. It lasts quite awhile.

    Yes, it a must-have unless you don't mind seeing fungus in your lenses one day.
