      I was thrilled with the product by visual material and when I saw the site of the BH. When the product arrived, I was a little bit disappointed by the difficulty of put my XSI inside of the bag. If you use a small lens like the 50mm, the machine is loose. I did not like that piece of Velcro damaged part of the fabric near the beam. But it is interesting to carry in a backpack, the camouflage modelis beautiful. Hope it lasts a lot.

      Nice, compact case for Sony A7

          Comments about BodyBag Compact with Lens (Black):

          I did a lot of shopping on B&H to find a case that wasn't huge and bulky for my Sony a7 with Sony kit lens. I have a big shoulder bag that I always carry with me. With this case, I'll be able to put the camera in there rather than having to cary a dedicated camera bag. This means I'm going to have my good camera with me much more often. A big plus in my opinion. Not to mention, that's part of why you'd buy a mirrorless camera in the first place (smaller, lighter, lower profile).

          I bought two cases: this one and the Ape Case Compact Expandable Holster. The Ape Case did not even come close to fitting, so if you have an A7, don't bother.

          Summary:

          I like the case, it's good quality, it fits my camera pretty well, and does the job. As far as neoprene cases for cameras with offset lenses, this is really the only option. (There is one other that would fit, but it got quite a few complaints about the quality of the neoprene. I didn't risk it.)

          Fit:

          This case fits snugly around the body and is somewhat loose around the lens itself. This seems okay. As far as I know, all the Sony Alpha camera bodies are the same size, so if you've got a big lens on your Sony A-series, this case should work for you too.

          The semi-rigid support at the end of the lens seems like a good idea. It's the right size for my lens and seems like it would help prevent the lens cap from coming off accidentally. It's wrapped in neoprene and has a little give to it.

          There are two coverage gaps at the top of the camera body where the sides don't quite meet the top flap. The body itself is protected on the top and sides, but there may be opportunities for the corners to get knocked. (This seems to be due to the raised flash shoe on the body of my camera—many mirrorless cameras are flat on top.)
          I'm going to keep my case despite this. If you're really rough with your camera and have one with a raise flash shoe like the A7, this might be the only reason not to buy this case.

          This case is one of the few neoprene cases designed for lenses that are not in the center of the camera. To the best of my knowledge, this is necessary for all the Sony mirrorless cameras (Alpha and NEX).

          Quality:

          The quality of the neoprene is high. If you've ever had an InCase neoprene laptop sleeve, this is exactly as thick and springy as that. No complaints here.

          Closing the Case:

          As other reviewers have said, this case is a little awkward to close (especially since it fits the body snuggly. Part of the difficulty is the cord for attaching the case to your belt loop. I'm probably going to just cut mine off. Who on earth would let a $1600 camera bump around as they walk hanging by their belt loop. Not I. The only benefit might be for guys who don't cary around a bag for their camera and who want to have a hands-free way to hang onto their case.

          The closure is velcro. Even though it's noisy, this is probably a better option than pressing snaps against the body of your camera. Magnets wouldn't be strong enough and I'm always wary of them damaging the electronic components inside anyway. The velcro of this closure is quite strong and secure.

                Tightly fits a D5300 with 17-55 (sans hood). You need to stretch it to fit, but it does work. Works fine with primes or smaller zooms. It provides nice scratch protection and minimal cushioning. My use is so I can store and transport it in my carry-on and backpack.

                  I bought this slip case to use when I need to bring my camera in my purse and I want to add a little protection. It does just that. It will not protect it completely but it will keep it from getting scratched up from other items in my bag. It's a little snug but perfect for what I need it for.

                    I use this to transport a Fujifilm X-E1 with 18-55 kit lens and Fuji HG-XE1 grip attached. Fits the body perfectly (not "glove" tight) with grip attached. About 1/2 inch of space at the end of the lens compartment. Without the grip, I believe it would be a bit loose fitting.

                      I use this "glove" for my Canon T3i and it fits perfectly. I've stored the camera in backpacks, messenger bags, and purses and it fits perfectly without the extra bulk, but with all the protection.

                      I travel a lot and this is a great product for those who don't want a camera bag that signals others that you've got an expensive camera - this fits in your bag easily and stays out of site...until you use it of course!

                      Bought this to carry my Canon Rebel T2i with an 18-135mm lens in my backpack. The Bodybag Compact was just big enough for this camera/lens combo. Cushioning is very minimal, hence the 3-star rating. So, I think cushioning could be better without being overly bulky in order to provide better protection. Also, description is not the best as far as cameras that this fits. I would recommend getting the next model size up if you are ever going to use it for a camera comparable to my T2i with a larger lens. I intend to get another to fit my T2i with my 70-300mm lens.

                              I wanted a lightweight cover to slip over my SLR so when I was out hiking or camping I didn't have my large bag to carry around. This is a good solution. I'd had the case in light rain too and it seemed to hold up just fine. It compact and light, so that I only carry my camera and it's easy to get the camera in and out of the case when I want it. The only reason I would want anything different would be to have a backpack style with two straps instead of just my camera strap.

                              Bag fits my nikon d3100 pretty well. Nice to use when putting inside another larger bag to provide protection and a little padding.

                              Strap to keep bag attached to camera strap came detached from the bag (kept getting stuck on the velcro) - I plan to re-sew.

                                This case is a perfect fit for my Nikon D3100. Great choice...and with so many options on the market, it was difficult to choose.

                                I was thrilled with the product by visual material and when I saw the site of the BH. When the product arrived, I was a little bit disappointed by the difficulty of put my XSI inside of the bag. If you use a small lens like the 50mm, the machine is loose. I did not like that piece of Velcro damaged part of the fabric near the beam. But it is interesting to carry in a backpack, the camouflage modelis beautiful. Hope it lasts a lot.

                                  i bought this for my nex-5 , it definitely doesnt fit well for it, however I use this on my other cameras as a protective kayer while carrying around on the strap. soft and durable, handy.

                                    I have the BodyBag compact with lens for my wife's XTi.and I use the pro version of this pouch for my 50D with battery grip and small lenses. We especially like the fact that the lens portion of the pouch is reinforced with plastic/foam giving extra protection. The pouch is lightweight and gives good protection when i have it in my backpack or camera bag. Well built.

                                      I sometimes carry my camera in my day pack (18L) when hiking so just wanted something that would protect my camera from keys, water bottles, trail mix, sunglasses etc. This fits the bill perfectly! Fits like a glove on my t1i with kit lens and with the body bag on, my camera still fits well in the day pack. I only own the kit lens now so I don't know if the bag fits longer lenses but it does seem to stretch a little so a slightly longer lens might be ok too.
