We now have a few Len's, most without any kind of cover, box or caps.
Can i ask you all how you protect your Len's and where can i get lens boxes/caps or pouches please?

Tom, I use a plastic zip lock bag! They work just right! To store and protect them! They come in different sizes! I keep a nice assortment of super 8 Lens! That I like to try out!

Hi Tom...I also keep my lenses primarily in plastic storage bags depending on the size. I find that tops from spices and prescription bottles often make good lens caps and I use small plastic boxes for very small lenses.

Most of my lenses are in velvet draw string pouches but ran out of these years ago.

More recently I'm using Neoprene ones which come in various sizes starting from around 99 Pence each. You will find them in the usual auction house and elsewhere. Do the job very well indeed.
