    Buy la. 1 dry cabinet is quite cheap as compared to the money you've invested in your DSLR gear. So it will be worthwhile, right?

    That's the reason I would buy a filter for. But I only have a kit I lens now. And it's not really worth buying an expensive filter for the kit lens. A relatively cheap filter would be more appropriate. But I have read about the effects of having a kinda cheap filter. I'm not sure about those effects but I know for sure they are not good effects.

    That's why I have not bought a filter for my current kit I lens. But I am very scared of knocking my lens against a sharp object too. What to do? Is there a relatively cheap filter that does not produce those negative effects caused by filters?

    lol, the gaps between lens and filter is quite small.. if you knocked the sharp object too hard.. your filter + lens will be spoilt too..

    if you shoot everyday, then no need for a dry cabinet, imo. I leave my lenses hanging around anyway, because these are cheap. haha. but I do have a dry box. lol.

    Eh, TS, I think some will say not necessary to have a dry cabinet...but I just have this feeling that 98% of CSer put their gear in dry cabinet/box etc...the rest of the 2% either just started or still looking for answer like you do

    Well, Dry cabinet is a must (at least you can go to sleep with ease...) Otherwise, you'll be up all night checking if tiny madmartians have landed on your lens glass to start a colony or two...

    Attach UV filters at all cost. You wouldn't want to learn your lesson the hard way, would you?

    I attended a workshop under Julian W. 2 years ago and he said that before buying your second lens, buy a dry cabinet first because it will save you a lot of worries. I stuck with it.

    If you think a dry cabinet is a bit out of your budget, why not opt for a dry box? It costs around $25 at John 3:16 and MSColor. After that, get yourself a couple of bottles of silica gel ($4+/-), and that's it.

    Is a dry cabinet REALLY necessary to store my DSLR and lens?

    since you ask it like this, the answer is simple: NO... there are a few other options besides getting a dry cabinet
