Planning ahead for the next few years. Any idea how many litres dry cabinet to get in order to fit in all the below comfortably?

10-22mm f/3.5-4.5
24-105mm f/4L
70-200mm f/4L IS
100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L
100mm Macro f/2.8L
50mm f/1.8
18-200mm f/3.5-5.6

All canon lens plus camera body and 430EX II flash. And space for some accessories (batteries, grip, etc). Is 60L or 70L enough or too big? I need a rough idea.
:dunno:

from the look of your up and coming gears, no harm getting a big cabinet like 50L and above. but still it depends if you plan to keep all those for a long time at one go, then 80L type would be good imho. otherwise, keep browsing around:)

maybe you want to enquire from red dot photo http://www.reddotphoto.com.sg/ecommerce/cat_viewproducts.php?catid=5

I am using 60L now. I can easily say it would be very tight for your listed equipment.

Depends on how you arrange your equipments and how you partition the layers.

60L should be more than enough. A 30L can already fit 3 cameras w/ grips, 4 lenses, 1 flash and some space for 2 PnS. Of course its fully filled up by then.

Think 50 L to 70 L will suffices,
My 50 L can fill up all of the below (in my signature) and still there's room for my wife digicam and all my creative landscape filters. :)

Thanks for the suggestions! I think I'll aim for the 70L.

You need one the size of that Heineken Ad. :D

I have 2x30L which is enough for quite a bit of stuff.
So 60-70L should be ok.

Also depends how long more you will need those gears. I noticed there are duplications...
