    I love my Hasselblads and could hardly imagine to use anything else but if I had to take care about the orientation I store them in, I'd switch to Mamiya.

    I can't think of any piece of mechanical equipment which could be damaged by storing it the wrong way round!

    I think the other Steve is referring to mechanical things like scissors machine shop equipment, not necessarily lenses. I agree with him in principle that most mechanical things are fairly impervious to storage orientation... unless there are affiliated issues like leakage of fuel or oil lubricant. Polaroid film was an exception (although some might think it too simple to be considered "mechanical") because if stored on end the chemical reagent would pool to one side and not spread right. In that case storing flat, as indicated on the box, was rather inportant.

    p.s. I store mine verticlly, with hood and caps on... seated on their rear caps. Seems very appropriate and since my camera bag is a bit tight I can grab the hoods to pull the lenses out.

    I of course have always considered Brian to be wise just like me. Wise-ass, that is. I think he is a person of good humor, though I understand he is a little short with his wife.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Oh crud,
    I've had a box in my refrigerator stored on the side end for at least 5 years.
