    Hi, I have seend on ebay that Gariz is a kind of expensive for me.. They cost around 80 euros for the nex-f3...

    I have found though some alternatives and I want to ask if someone used those.

    Hi,

    I have just bought this:-
    Black Ever Ready Camera Case Bag + strap for Sony NEX-5R NEX 5R 18-55mm 16-50mm | eBay

    The service was great, the price even better!

    It fits my Nex 5R very well - the lens is the normal 18/55 and I store the lenshood on the lens (reversed)
    interestingly the camera and its new case will still just fit into my old Jessops Centon bag so it's a good
    result.

    The Gariz half case looks very nice but at that price so it should! I wonder how much you pay for the box?

    I have the same one as Nick but in brown, I just use the half-case part.

    It was so cheap that I just cut a hole for the USB/HDMI compartment, would get very annoying to keep unscrewing the case to access the USB port. A brand called Zelenpol allows access like the Gariz, similar price though:

    I nearly got this one:

    It's slightly too nice to be hacking at it with scissors though.
