when you are putting your older large format lenses in the camera bag, and there are no lens caps for them, would you rather:

A. make a mat board sleeve for them to give them a hard sided case to then fit into padded dividers,


B. Just drop them into the padded dividers because the dividers are soft and won't damage the lens

I am leaning toward making mat board sleeves, but I don't want to put excessive wear on the lenses or even damage them any worse than just padding would. I am particularly worried about the rear elements because they are not recessed anywhere near as much as the front elements are. Also, the mat board option seems like it would generate more dust?
