    Looks great! :D

    It's on my list for the ergonomics factor - coming from a gripped DLSR the NEX seems a tad hard to hold in my hand. Looks like the case adds a little length to it.

    You can buy them through eBay, or alternatively you can contact GARIZ directly through their website and they will ship to you, I did so when I bought a similar case for my NEX-7 in the past, you also tend to save a little bit as you are dealing with them directly.

    I bought from Gariz direct too. Hasn't been off my NEX-7 since. Great case.

    It's a nice case, and packagng is good/cool. Case does help with the grip but it's not all that glorious. I dropped my camera few days after getting it, and luckily case protected it completely, but the metal you see at the bottom of the case is really just a very thin sheet glued on. The base of the case is made of something else...I don't know if it's fiberglass or some other composite, or maybe even heavy duty plastic.

    The other issue I have with it is they have moved the tripod mount - it is now closer to the battery door. I like to keep my tripod quick realease shoe attached on the camera, and if I do this with the case on, I cannot open the battery/SD car completely in order to swap either. The tripod adapter needs to be removed. Small issue I guess, and it may not impact everyone out there, but something I noticed.

    Here's mine...

    Thanks for sharing. I also wanted to buy such one. How much did you get it cause in Europe I found it close to 80 euros, which I think is a lot. Are there any more alternatives though?

    I put one on my 5R. Black with red stitching. Really nice!

    The bottom on the NEX-7 case, underneath the metal sheet, is made up of leather sheets glued on top of each other (i.e., laminated).

    They have revised the grip design on the NEX-6 model to include a cutout for the IR sensor. The cut on the NEX-7 model is lower, and eventually gauged a tiny abrasion on the rubber grip on my camera.
