Product Reviews for Sony LCS-U10 Carrying Case for Camcorder, Camera, Accessories - Black
Works well for the NEX-5.

I bought a NEX-5N today with the 18mm pancake lens, and naturally wanted to protect my expensive investment. I looked at the case "designed for" the NEX cameras, but it honestly looked really junky and didn't have any side pockets for filters, memory cards, or lens caps. I got this Handycam case instead, and it's better AND $10 cheaper! This case's main pouch fits the NEX 3/5 (probably the 7 too), the 18-55mm lens, the 18mm pancake lens, the lens hood, and either the battery charger OR small compact-size Joby Gorilla Pod... with a little room to spare. You _might_ be able to fit it all in if you squeeze, but it's probably not a good idea. Then, the 3 outside pockets are left for filters and whatnot. Inside there is a removable and movable divider that attaches to the inside of the pouch with velcro. That's actually really clever and lets you store the NEX with either lens attached. The only bad points are 1) the shoulder strap isn't removable and 2) the zipper design can be tricky sometimes. This is because of how the zippers go back so far to allow the top to open and the little "overhang" on the top flap. But overall these aren't deal breakers.

easy to carry and light weight
still a little bit small
Overall of this case is pretty good, very nice design and it's light. However, it's still small if you want to put your charger and 18-55mm lens with lens hood in the case. You will find it's going to be hard to close it.

I bought it, I use it, I like it. If you are interested, be sure to check the size of your camera! This is a cute bag made of Sony's fantastic fabric. It has a belt loop but is too big to wear on the waist; if you were to take your gear in it to Aunt Martha's she would think you worked for the TV station. The straps do not detach. See my review of LCS-U5. My favorite use is to put in it all the cables, charger, manual, camera, and hang it over my car's back seat head rest when I go on trips. Everything is right there, handy. Its design and padding should protect the camera from drops. For the price this is excellent buy.
