Pelican Storm Case!!!

I have three Pelican Storm Case's that I store my camera lenses in. After purchasing my K1, I somehow have also acquired the D FA15-30, D FA24-70 & D FA70-200, these lenses are quite expensive as most are aware off. The Pentax pouches provided with them are not very protective and I would like to purchase a Pelican case to store them in. The cases like all things that seem to get very expensive as they get bigger and wish not to buy one to big or to small. Has anyone thought of doing this and have their lenses stored in Pelican cases, that can give me the model # for me to purchase.

Arrange the lenses the way you want to, measure the area needed to comfortably store them, and use the following size chart to determine what case would work:

there are other variations to pelican cases too.
not sure what the equivalent of it will be in the US, but in canada we have this store called 'canadian tire' that has these really nifty storm proof brief case type boxes that use the same stuff as pelican. have the foam on the inside. and they are floaters too. and they are like 50 bucks CAD.

go to utility stores or something and look around. i'm sure you can find other variations of them.

Before purchasing a Pelican case, google "Harbor Freight Tools," go to their website then search "waterproof case." It's worth a look.
