Yay, another resurrection for this thread.

Has anyone ever forget to turn the camera off when changing lenses? I do that all the time. Not on purpose, but it just happens.

Does it hurt anything? I have a T1i. I know there's electrical contacts on the lens and camera - I don't know if those contacts are pass current/signal when the shutter is not in use.

The manual doesn't actually include "turn off the camera" as one of the steps in the lens changing procedure. It doesn't say much about it.

2009. 2011. 2016. What will the next year be?
