Not at all a dumb question. But the reply quoted just above might fall into that category. 😳

My normal walk around lens stays on my main body but the backup body often gets stored with a body cap and no battery.

I leave my lenses on the camera bodies almost all the time. If I remove the lens I place a cap on the body. I only have one bag and the Olympus is the only camera small enough to fit in it so all four of my cameras sit on a shelf above my desk. I will be traveling home to South Carolina in October. I guess I will take my Canon along in my carry-on. It definitely wouldn't be safe in the main bag.

It was not a dumb question. It was an honest question. And it has answers that go beyond the simple camera lens interface such as what lens do you want when you grab the camera for a quick shoot.

If you have more than one camera, you may want to store them with different lenses on different bodies.

A thought along with lenses. How many of you store your camera with the battery inserted? I’m afraid I do. I have been wondering how safe that is and if I should store the battery next to the camera body. Has anyone ever had a battery leak in their camera?

I'm using one of my cameras daily right now, so I'm leaving the batteries installed. All other cameras have the batteries removed. I do check charge levels every day, even on days that I might not use the camera. I think a better approach is not to leave the batteries in an unattended camera at all. Situations can change quickly without our having the opportunity to make adjustments (removing batteries from cameras). Current technology batteries can fail almost spontaneously, and without any warning. The worst case result of removing all batteries daily is that I might have to reset some in-camera clocks, but if you read the manual, those require periodic resetting anyway, because of limited accuracy.

Thanks. I will remove all the batteries and leave them outside of the cameras.
