He doesn't know what he's talking about. Though I don't even own
never-ready cases. They are well mis-named. When you have it on, that's
when the big picture happens. By the time you get the camera out of the
case, the picture's gone. As far as leaving lenses on cameras, how in the
world could that cause a problem? Taking the lens on and off the camera, as
little wear as that creates, just creates more wear and tear. Forget it. If
you store the camera for more than a month, do take the battery out,
though. They can leak with disuse.
