I'm sure this question must have been asked in the past, but I couldn't find anything through a NikoScope search.

When you're shooting in the field and need to change lenses on the fly, do you take the time to replace the front and rear lens caps on the removed lens? Or do you simply stow the naked lens in your bag or in your pocket in the interest of saving time? A professional photographer told me that he doesn't have time to replace lens caps while changing. That got my attention, since I've always handled my equipment with kid gloves (and I'm sure many (perhaps most) Nikonians, do the same).

So, is there anyone out there who does not replace lens caps while changing? If so, how do you minimize dirt/dust issues?
