nothing fancy, just a plastic one with desiccants. do all of you use em? is fungus hit or miss or will all lenses be subject to it after a period of time? is all of your gear stored in one at all times?

i thought i was safe keeping all of my gear in my bag (non-airtight non-waterproofed) with silica in each pocket of the bag, but my developing guy told me the silica bags are useless unless your gear is in an airtight container

So why do manufacturers even bother to put them in their boxes for their products?

It stays mostly in a carry bag and little plastic boxes to hole random shit like batteries etc. Never use the proper lens cases :o
