I remember I was trying to get a shot of a dust devil and I had to quickly change my zoom for a wide angle it came at me so fast. Before I knew it I was reaching for my macro lens. ; ) I do turn off the camera (wise procedure) as well as swapping out lenses with the lens facing the ground.

I'm a bit paranoid but it hasn't stopped me from changing lenses. I have had a few sticky dust particals require coercing however.

I was at a hockey game and saw the press photographers constantly swapping lens - on and off and on again, and between swaps the lenses were set on the ground w/out a cover on either side - I was shocked.
