    When moving from cold to hot (like indoor to outdoor), how do you guys prevent your lenses from condensation?

    Do you guys use the plastic bag method, and let it wait for an hour...
    or do you use silica gel?

    how many packs of silica gel do you keep in your camera bag?

    waiting an hour or so to let the temp drop gradually should do the job
