Unfortunately, a camera accident could happen to anyone. Since we always want to be ready, we sometimes have a tendency to carry our "weapons" loosely holstered, and that can set the stage for a lens-drop disaster.

I use one of these: http://products.lowepro.com/product/...AW,2226,53.htm

This case hangs on the side of my camera bag. It is designed to be opened with one hand and it accordions outward exposing two pouches. One holds the lens you are taking off and one holds the lens you are attaching. You zip it open, make the swap, then zip it closed. Once closed, there is no danger of anything falling out of it. It is cheap insurance to protect a very expensive investment.
