    Default Lens storing

    Hi,

    I will to ask how should the lens be stored in the dry cabinet? I know the items are not air tight in the first place but is it better to leave the front/rear caps off?

    Leave them on... No issues at all as the lens is not airtight anyway.

    You can store them horizontal / vertical / caps on caps off.
    As long as they are stably placed.

    entirely up to you but i believe most photogs will keep their regularly used lens on the body whether they keep it in the dry cabinet or kit bag.

    If you're storing for a few days, I don't think the way you put it will have much effect.

    It's best to clean the camera and lens from sweat before storing.
    Don't forget to clean the caps if you intend to keep it on.
