I store my gear in Pelican Storm hard cases with a desiccant pack, which protects them from leaks, toddlers, dust, etc. I do keep the lens mounted, and I have a small case (Storm im2075) that just fits the gripped 5DII with 24-105mm mounted, and a 430EX II along side - that's ready to go for shots around the house. My next most-used lenses are kept in a medium-sized case (Storm im2300) - 70-200 II, 100mm L Macro and the 'holy trinity' of primes (35L, 85L II, 135L). All the rest (7D, remaining lenses, accessories) goes in a big Pelican 1600.
Hope that helps...
Thanks for this. The bag I bought isnt big enough to hold a 5DII+battery grip. It is designed to be a small rucksack so its not deep enough. What is the best way to store your battery grip when travelling? It looks quite delicate with the extension. I dont want to snap it.
Also, my bag only bits the lenses without the lens hoods. With the lens hoods on, they are too wide and the bag cant accommodate for them all. Whats a good idea to carry these hood seperately?
Do you store your hood backwards along the lens barrel?
