    My NEX-5N camera fits, with the original flash installed (YAY!), either lens-down, or sideways with the lens at the top. The latter a bit too tightly, especially for the zipper. The shoulder strap that came with the case is not very good (very thin, same width throughout its length), so I replaced it with the one that came with the camera. The one nice thing about the case's strap is that it can be adjusted to be very long (unlike the one that came with the camera, which doesn't get very long). The materials this case is made of are clearly top-notch, including the zippers, so I would expect it to basically last forever. The handle at the top is a brilliant addition! It makes grabbing the case very easy, especially when the camera is in it. I also really like the zippered pocket on the side, where I keep the extra memory and the USB card reader (yes, it's a pretty big pocket). The little pouch that is attached with velcro to the inside isn't bery useful for keeping anything, in my opinion, but does add some cushioning, especially when placing the camera lens-down (it rests agains the LCD screen), so I left it there, empty. All in all I am giving this case 5 stars because of the great materials in it, perfect design for the NEX-5N dimensions, and the added features (side pocket, top handle). The shoulder strap is not a big deal to me, so I am not taking any stars off for that reason...

    A fine bag but, it just holds the camera (Sony Nex-7)and attached lens. If you want to carry anything extra ( additional lens, flash, etc.), I would suggest a larger bag. It seems hard to find an appropriate bag for this camera. Still hunting.

      Comments about Kata MarvelX 20 DL Camera Holster:

      I am using it for the Sony nex 5n and it fits it perfectly.
      Two issues though:
      1. Difficult to close if the camera has a neck band so you should use it without.
      2. I am always concerned that the screen will get scratched

      Comments about Kata MarvelX 20 DL Camera Holster:

      The holster does a great job at being a lightweight camera bag for a single lens; it does provide a nice pocket for a spare sd card, lens cap or battery. I only felt it could use a few more pockets, otherwise it could be perfect 5. For a single camera, it beats carrying my canon backpack, it feels a lot more secure for crowds and is so much lighter.

          Comments about Kata MarvelX 20 DL Camera Holster:

          It's a very minimalist bag and suits my needs! I can remove the straps if I want and carry it in my purse, so I'm pretty satisfied.

          The main pouch is a very snug fit for the Sony NEX-5N and leaves little to no room for other things with the 18-55mm lens attached. There's a small pouch on the inside of the top attached by velcro which can fit a memory card. There's a picture showing it will fit batteries too, but I think they're too thick and will push hard against the camera screen IF you have the 18-55mm lens attached. If not, batteries or flash should fit fine. There's also a small exterior zipper pocket in which I was able to fit both the flash and an extra battery.

          If you're planning to carry more gear, this bag probably isn't for you. It's made to hold the bare minimum. The material, cushioning, etc. seems good quality to me.

              Comments about Kata MarvelX 20 DL Camera Holster:

              Fits (albeit very tightly) with kit zoom lens, filter, extra battery or two (in side pocket) and memory card. I love that it's no bigger than it has to be. Shoulder strap can be used to go around waist, so you don't even need a belt, with the benefit that the strap pulling on the side rings makes it balance better and closer to your body than when it's just hanging on the belt loops. Downside is that it's harder to open. I'd have given 5 stars except that it's not so easy to pull the zipper around the corners with the camera this tight. I would have preferred the bag opening in front with a velcro closure. I can reverse the bag to make that happen, except then the camera comes out of the bag backwards.

                Prefect fit for the NEX-5n, lens downwards. Good protection, solid but light. Provides good carrying confidence. Exactly enough space for your camera - nothing else. The only disadvantage is the pretty thin, basic strap. Lightweight and unobtrusive, but your standard think strap. Its very similar to the NEX-5n strap, actually.

                    I have been using it as a gun holster style most of the time and it works well. Due to the fact I'm using as such I would like to see the flap reversed on top with a Velcro closure option on top of zipper. This would make it much easier to access camera.
