When I buy lenses they are in "sealed" plastic bags so maybe they don't need any drybox.

Same question for just about every electronic gadget there is. Go check mang ramon's store. With that store condition, the entire store (or at least the stock room) should be made into a huge drybox. But it's impractical. Does it affect the gadgets? I dont know. I mentioned in one of the threads here that "use of drybox" is overrated. Do we really need one?

For the TS, i've seen several stores of infomax storing the lenses they sell inside a drybox. The drybox is also for sale.

Cheers!

Yeah, I too think it's overrated (well, if fungus starts growing on my lenses then I would stop thinking it's overrated) especially if you regularly use your gear. In the case of camera stores, maybe their inventory moves fast enough not to warrant a drybox. As for infomax, maybe it's more for show, or maybe their stocks move slow because of their price.  ;D

But if you want to store something for a long period, then maybe a drybox is necessary. My mom has a boxload of old lenses for Canon and want to sell them but  many of them have fungus maybe because they've been in storage for 25 years already and the dessicants that my mom put are are as old as the lenses.
