    I now face a new problem, I am trying to figure out how to store my lens collection. What are you using to store your collection and bodies?

    I'm reaching this point as well - I have one of these at the moment which just fits all my gear, and I have the OEM Nex-5 little bag that fits a camera with a lens plus the SEL16F28 or SELP1650 as well (so good for walking with a 2 lens combo). So will be interested in solutions for storage as I will outgrow my Lowepro with one more lens purchase so it will no longer suffice as a storage/stowage solution!

    I am not talking a bag, but either some kind of book case, safe or large lock box. I have about 10 to 12 bodies and maybe 35 lenes

    I leave my gear lying around with dust caps on - that's the truth :) I'm forever changing lens, messing around so I just can't be bothered putting anything away lol

    I just keep my lenses on a bookshelf in my office, stored in little neoprene pouches.

    At any given time, I will have 7 - 10 lenses scattered around on my desk. It is great to have them within reach when I am on conference calls. Helps pass the time! [emoji6]

    Whatever you do, don't store them somewhere dark and damp.

    Thanks for info, but where I live (Southern California) dampness is not a problem and if I go with any sealed cabinet, I will have a Dehumidifier Rods in the cabinet

    I have bought two cabinets with drawers that fit under my desk left and right. Desk is in the living room so temperature and humidity aren't a problem (I'm in The Netherlands which has a benign climate). Almost all my lenses are stored there except for the 10 or so lenses that sit in various bags. Maybe I'll post a picture later when I'm at home.
