    I use the plastic storage bins. Having multiple systems, I keep a separate bin for each system. Each camera or lens is wrapped in bubble wrap, in a hard case, or in a wrap.

    I had a rough time emptying enough Crown Royal bags for my needs.
    I think I'll need another one tomorrow as well. Better get busy!

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    +1. A pair of Domkes for the Nikons (an old F2 and a newer F2X?), a Billingham for the Leicas, and two different-sized Lowepro backpacks for the Hasselblads. And I still find myself constantly rearranging the innards of each to suit the needs at hand...

    I store my camera gear in tool attache cases that have heavy foam inserts. Each case has a nice helping of silica gel for moisture control. Lenses have front and rear caps as do extension tubes, tc's, etc. Bodies have caps as well. Most bodies have batteries removed before they're placed in the case.

    My camera bags only have a current selection of lenses that I plan on using with whatever bodies are currently in play.

    The lenses and other bits I am not carrying in the bag reside in a drawer, no bags, no silica gel, just a shallow drawer kept closed to exclude dust.

    I'm with David on the extra cases. I do a regular local craigslist check for them - I've picked up a half dozen for $10 - $15 apiece, so my stuff (not the 4x5, just the nikons and rollei's, including several meters, etc) are spread across several bags. I just put together what I want for that day/shoot. I have a great Tenba (my favorite brand) that will hold anything I might want.

    For smaller lenses I use cardboard mailing tube cut to length. give enough protection from the lenses rubbing against each other.
    Most of my lenses use 52mm or smaller filters so a 2 1/2" tube is big enough.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
