Have you tried storing your lenses in lense pouches?

9 months 1 week ago #685649 by Peter Nunez
Honestly, I'm finding myself on the fence here.  Part of me thinks this will preserve my lenses longer and make it easier to store them when not in use.  The other part of me thinks it will be nonsense to use long term.  

I'm not sure what I'm expecting from posting this.  But it's on my mind and I'm going too.  Are you using or have you used lens pouches?  Please share your experience.

In any "sealed" storage, given anaerobic microorganism will
have the best growing conditions — even with IF lenses.

Years have taught me that if I am well, my gear will be too,
specially with IF lenses — the same applies to my guitars.

Most of my gear is either in the studio or in the truck — for on
location work — is stored in their respective shoulder bags or
Peli cases.

I would store my gear in sealed containers only in uncontrol-
lable humidity or fine dust conditions.

I keep the plastic end dust covers on all of mine, and have a couple of sets of the draw string padded pouches to keep them in. The ones that I have are purple color fabric inside. I like the padding that these provide and the draw string doesn't close tight enough to stop air flow in/out of the bags. The only time that they are not protected this way is when they are in use, but even then, the end cap is kept on the face end when I'm actually not taking photos. Each of these bags has a snap hook on the side, so I can have a snap ring on my belt loop and snap one or two of these onto it when needing to move around and change lenses frequently. (almost never need to do this).

Never use a lens bag, just another barrier to get access to my lens.

All the lens bags my lenses came with get stored away with the box.  Never use them.

Mine go in their bags (for the ones that have bags) and into the closet when not being used. When I put my things away. If I put them away, I'm better at not losing track of them among multiple camera bags.

Back when I first got started, I did keep my lenses and unused gear in boxes and pouches.  These days not the case.  I have all my lenses when not in use, in a glass case in my home library.

Nope, don’t care for them. Only more delay in getting my lens out of my bag.

For me, I don't use lens bags.  Matter of fact the only time I have used one is when I was selling the lens and shipping it.  IMHO, they are impractical and not needed for ever day use when you already have a good camera bag.

Well I guess I'm not alone.  Mine are just stored away in my camera bag with out lens bags too.  I was wondering what those are for.  Or rather when you would use.  I like to be able to just grab my gear and use it.  I don't like to have things in my way of getting my gear out fast.

The safest places for lenses are the bag and the mount. Any
operation in between is a higher risk of accident.
