    TS, if you only have 1 cam body and 1 lens, my suggestion is to leave the lens mounted on the body and store in the dry cabi. Unless you are running out of space in the dry cabi and needs to separate them to store. Just my personal opinion.

    So as to minimize the dust particle from entering the camera and lens, should I store them away attached together, in the dry cabinet?

    Is there any cons of doing so?

    Thanks for the advice.
    Dust is everywhere. You can't really help it. Since you only have one lens then the sensible option is to leave the lens attached to the body to prevent dust from settling on the sensor.

    Tell you a funny joke: I'm in Perth and in Summer as in now, there are lots of flies and other furry bugs. When I changed my prime lens to a UWA lens, a stupid fly flew in when I attached the lens. Guess what? I snapped a few times until the mirror squashed the fly. It was then removed using a lens pen. Violia ... good as new.

    just wondering,

    all the shake off dust, where do they go to? Do they collect in the body and become dust bunnies?

    How did they get there? Accidental spilling of something sweet over the camera?

    AFAIK, in the case of the Canon EOS Integrated Cleaning System (ICS) dust particles falls off the IR cut-off and optical low-pass filter forward of the CMOS sensor and onto an adhesive pad.

    I think it's doesn't make much of a difference. For me it's more of a practicality decision, my dry box is rather packed and so I need to store the body and lens separately.

    As for the discussion on "dust" in general, don't need to get too fussed up over dust... but do be careful when changing lens in sandy or extremely dusty environment (e.g. beach, construction site etc.). With normal usage and regular care, even if any dust issues occur, by the time it gets serious enough, it's time to upgrade your body anyway.
