Pleased to say sony has made a very well made case for there a7 camera, priced at just over one hundred dollars u could choose a cheap alternative. considering most things Sony build quality is always good . The case is an exact fit for the a7 /R leaving just enough room for the 24mm /70 zoom lens theres 3 snaps holding the case closed which when open you cam leave the case dangled or unsnap and then have just the body case cover protection, also the tri pod mount has an female adaptater which means you won't have to remove the body case . The only drawback is when changing the battery or the SD card the case must be removed ( body cover) also this is a case which Sony did not provide a carrying strap. Overall well made with high quality leather.

If you're just shooting primes, skip this. If you're shooting with a zoom, it's probably great. Construction seems fine, and it looks good. But the snout is big in order to accommodate a zoom, so it's massive overkill for a compact lens. And without the hood, it doesn't offer much meaningful protection, so there's not much point. It would make sense if you were on vacation and were only carrying one zoom, but otherwise, I think you would be better off with a small bag, which would take up about the same space and would probably allow you to carry extra batteries as well.

      Comments about Sony Genuine Leather Jacket Case for a7 or a7R Digital Camera (Black):

      It's got snaps that don't really hold together. While I have to appreciate the effort to make an old-school leather case for a modern digital camera, the case has too many moving parts and feels like it's ready to crumble. Like a cookie. Two stars because I like the smell.

          Comments about Sony Genuine Leather Jacket Case for a7 or a7R Digital Camera (Black):

          Very nice case, but only usable with the smallest of lenses, ie the Sony/Zeiss 24-70 f4 is too long to close the case. However, I have found benefit in only using the portion of the case that attaches to the Sony A7R camera body and skipping the cover that goes over the lens, as it gives the camera body a little more "meat" which for me, improves the grip enough to justify owning it.

                This camera case comes in a big plastic package, so i was put off by how cumbersome it might be. turns out it fits my Sony A7 perfectly and is a manageable size. It's lightweight and stronger than a wetsuit type camera case.

                  Comments about Sony Genuine Leather Jacket Case for a7 or a7R Digital Camera (Black):

                  this is a great protective casing but i wish It was better designed. It stores my a7s with the kit lens on but I have to remove the lens hood for it to fit because the diameter at the front is too small. The case breaks out in two parts but if you keep the bottom part on your cam you won't be able to get to the memory card bay on the a7 a7r or a7s

                      It came for free with the A7S, so it's not like I have any vested interest in liking itIt fits the A7S, and a lens, but there is a giant gap in the bottom for dust / debris to get in.Worst point...it stinks, like literally smells. Not sure what chemical they use to treat the leather, but it is not pleasant.Wasn't really intending on using this anyway, but be warned...not the best case + not the best smelling

                      At first, once I received this case I tried fitting it to my a7s and it was a little awkward fitting in the beginning becaue it's new but it is really fit after the first two times of use. It's really good for on the go shooting. Granted it obviously isn't big enough for multiple lenses but who cares it's excellent and convenient.

                            Camera case was part of A7 kit. It protects camera and looks great. Take care to grab camera by straps not by the top of the case.

                            The "Genuine Leather Jacket Case for A7" is large, bulky, heavy, and in no way adjustable. It only fits the A7 series cameras with the kit 28-70 lens attached. I received mine as part of a promotional "savings" package. I may send it back. I honestly do not know why anyone, including Sony, would think this case had any value at all.

                              If you're just shooting primes, skip this. If you're shooting with a zoom, it's probably great. Construction seems fine, and it looks good. But the snout is big in order to accommodate a zoom, so it's massive overkill for a compact lens. And without the hood, it doesn't offer much meaningful protection, so there's not much point. It would make sense if you were on vacation and were only carrying one zoom, but otherwise, I think you would be better off with a small bag, which would take up about the same space and would probably allow you to carry extra batteries as well.

                              Nice genuine leather hard case

                              This is a quality Sony brand name hard leather case. There are two pieces, one that attaches to the body by screwing into the tripod mount on the camera, and the other which fits over the top of the body and the lens and attaches to the first piece with two snaps. The top piece can be swiveled off the camera without detaching since the lens portion of the case has a couple of panels that ate only sewn on one side. Do not rely on the snaps to keep the top part connected except briefly. I use Voigtlander manual lenses, but I believe that this case will fit the Zeiss kit lens or 55mm. Good materials. Well made.
