I searched the forum archives and haven't found anything on this...

The responses to the question about whether or not to tether a lens cap sparked this thought.. What procedure do you use when switching from one lens to another out in the field.

I use a Lowepro Orion AW convertible bag..it is either holstered in front of me or over my should with the waist strap loosely fitted.


  1. Turn camera off
  2. Open the top of the bag (lenses are now stored rear end up as a result of the tether thread)
  3. Front cap from my left rear pocket goes on mounted lens
  4. Remove mounted lens, body facing down, put it in it's pocket
  5. Transfer rear cap from new lens to the rear of the lens I just removed
  6. Mount the new lens
  7. Remove front cap and put it in my pocket
  8. Turn on and shoot....


Is this a pretty standard procedure? Any other tricks to consider?
