As other reviews have noted, this case is small, but it does accommodate the NEX5n camera with both the 18-55 lens and the 16mm wide angle lens. The side compartment can hold the 16mm lens even with the base cap, but it's a tight fit. I plan to get the OLED electronic viewfinder when available, and the case should hold this accessory too, hopefully in place atop the camera.
This is actually for Handycam not Nex 3 or Nex 5. But cases dedicated to Nex are too expensive. This case will do just fine! However, it is a little too small if you want to carry both 18 mm lens and 18-55 mm lens. And if you have a 18-200 mm lens, forget about it! Still, I love this case. It is very well built.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
