        nice addition to my camera

        By 1students

        Comments about Sony LCS-EMJ Alpha NEX Soft Carry Case:

        Great item if you got long lenses on. Fits perfectly. Light weight. Only wish i could fix it on the body like those body only cases. When taking photo you have to let it hang on the camera shoulder strap or completely remove it. This bag certainly will be protecting my camera and the tele lens. 4stars. Excellent shipping arrangement and fast delivery.

        Almost great, hampered by a few flaws

          Comments about Sony LCS-EMJ Alpha NEX Soft Carry Case:

          This is almost a great case for the a6000 / NEX family mirrorless cameras. It's the only such case that's expandable to handle a long zoom lens like the SEL55210, so if you carry a lens like that (and ONLY a lens like that) then this case is great.

          But - if you use any other lens other than that or the powerzoom kit lens, you'll find the case to be deeply flawed. I primarily carry around a Sony prime lens like the SEL50f18 or the SEL24f18z and this case is cut about 1/4" too short to accommodate those lenses. It's seriously so close to fitting that it's frustrating the design wasn't adjusted that slight bit. Instead you have to pull the hard flap that makes the case rigid when expanded aside every time you put the camera back in.

          Because of that the case has a fatal, fatal flaw - it's really slow and clumsy to get the camera in and out of. And that's the worst thing a camera case can be.

          Unfortunately though - it's one of the best cases avaialble for the a6000 more or less by default:all the ever-ready cases for it seem to only fit the kit lens, leaving you with no real choices if you're a user of one of the medium-sized prime lenses, or even the Sony SEL1670z. Basically if you have an a6000 and a nice lens, you're not going to have a nice case to carry it around in.

          Makes NEX camera more usable

            Comments about Sony LCS-EMJ Alpha NEX Soft Carry Case:

            This case is actually pretty awesome. It is the first one on the market that houses lenses of various length, including the longer SEL55210.
            My only gripe about it is that in order to fit my most often used lens, Zeiss Sonnar T* 24mm/ F1.8, I had to lift the separator piece on velcro. I wish I could take it out completely. Great case otherwise.

                Comments about Sony LCS-EMJ Alpha NEX Soft Carry Case:

                The catalog photo shows the case with the lens extension fully retracted, but the case accommodates the included kit lens only if you un-zip and un-fold the extension. Then, it looks embarrassingly ugly. NOT a fashion statement. I sent it back for a refund, which B&H graciously provided. I suggest that B&H include a photo of the case as it looks when fully extended.
