How about this for arithmetic?
It is called risk management.
There is a risk associated with all activities.
You can get hit by the lightning but chance of that happening is 1 in the millions. That is why we mostly are not afraid being in the rain.
Chance of getting in to an accident is very high and yet we drive everyday. Chance of winning a lottery is one in a billion but we buy lottery tickets anyway.
And so on and on and on......
And we read about this everyday in newspapers and magazines and on the web.
But I have done lens change myself thousands of times.
With many millions of cameras out there and billions of lens changes without turning camera off even by those people who always say they do it but not even one case reported my math says that odds ruining
the camera by not turning it off while changing lenses is less than winning the state lottery. Much less.



>In any event, Nikon recommends turning the camera off.

Nikon also recommends to use only Nikon lenses and accessories.
And if not and camera gets ruined it is also voids the warranty.
We have all seen bulged batteries and broken grips in the pictures posted here and elsewhere.
Yet, third party accessories is a booming business outselling OEM by a huge ratio judging by Amazon and Ebay sales. Even trusted stores like B&H and Adorama for example sell third party accessories and lenses.
Chances of using third party stuff is much, much higher than not turning camera off while changing lenses.

So how is that for a math?
