Thinking about it, turning camera off and then back on takes a lot of time.
At least a second or two longer longer and a lot of things can happen in one second.

But by the time you grab the lens to remove, it will stop.
Unless you are Speedy Gonzales
Besides it is trivial too.

Wrong, it is not posted because it is so trivial. And don't say "most people" because at least one poster here in this thread does not do it and the many others admitting forgetting about it.
Yet, no one ever mention any problems.
