If I want grain, I can add it later. Or shoot high ISO...

Hey, my karma has dropped 6 points in less than 24 hours
I keep all my gear in a small office room that can be locked. It is on the 2nd floor (save from water/flooding). It is a dry room. Most of the gear is stored in a back-pack. So in case it is needed, I can quickly get it and go. My studio equipment is also stored in the office room. Because the room is locked, it is save for my children.
My back-pack is a Kata Slingbag (holds 2 DSLR, several lenses, flash, tripod/monopod and other assecoires)
Just a late security inspired thought...some posters have put up some fairly specific information that may be useful to some mongrel who wanted gear for free...You had better believe we're all quite easy to locate. Underestimate the criminal mind at your peril.
Until you have been burgled, you think it's never going to happen to you. We got done recently on a noisy stormy night while we were asleep upstairs. It's a horrible, expensive, breathtakingly time consuming affair.
Consider editing your posts with personal security in mind . This world isn't all sweetness and light. That's reality.
Ah, yes. Right!
Good of you to bring that under my attention. Well, I guess I am a bit naÃ¯ve. I will consider this with my next posts.
As for the storage of my gear: I have to relocate that - or split up. Lucky I have some other hidden chambers in this palace of mine
the other thing is even if they announce a new lens when will the lens actually be available they already announced delays to the previously announced long lenses...
Maybe it's a pancake lens or something similar with only 5 elements that they can produce quickly and cheaply, just so they can say, "Hey, look, we don't delay every lens, just the ones you actually want"
My gear is everywhere...
Most of my lenses (old, Pentacon 6 and M42) are in my bedroom, in a $6 ikea plastic tub, stacked however they fit in.
My camera with one lens attached is by my feet in my garage/rumpus room, where my computer and home-made sound system is, the CF card is on the piano-stool I use for a mouse-mat plugged into a card reader since I transferred pics last night, battery is in the charger by my feet next to the camera so I don't forget it if i grab my camera in a hurry to photograph a bug outside.
If I go inside into the family room, there's probably a lens or two on the couch and maybe a few filters or step-rings on the armrest.
On the floor is my Lowepro 350AW, with 70-300L and Samyang 35/1.4 (the two lenses I care most about) safely inside. (I should care about my 15-85 more because of the price I paid, but I think it's in the plastic tub, I barely use it anymore these days since I'm not travelling).
Most other EF-mount lenses are on a shelf, precarisouly in front of a cupboard door (at least it's a cupboard noone ever goes in).
The tripod is still set up from yesterday's shooting on the ground next to the breakfast bar, the speedlite was sitting there until I needed space for my coffee. The flower I was photographing is still on a black towel held by alligator-clip-things I bought 15 years ago to hold pcbs I was soldering. The other half of the breakfast bar is taken up by electronics components, transistors/resistors, and RGB-LEDs (I was making myself a colour-changeable Macro-ring light).
In the dining-room is my gorillapod and another macro-subject I was shooting a week ago, a leaf held by another alligator-clip-stand. There is also my tc-80n3 I use as a remote (hardly ever use for timer functions), and a set of kenko rings, hopefully somewhere inamongst a pile of papers on the dining table next to it is my 85/1.8 and 50/1.8ii, I haven't seen them for a few days...
These are some of my pictures taken at Yosemite over the last year.

Y'all in California make me very jealous when it comes to photography; you have so many more oppertunities than those of us in the south.
