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 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

        As a total amateur for 40 years, I found this camera to be as similar to film as any I have tried before. Light balance in low light settings and sharpness of photos is so far above my Pentax K30 it is like night and day.

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

        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.

                      Nice genuine leather hard case

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

                      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.

                      This case is oddly shaped to carry but almost fits perfect for the camera,
                      it is so easy to snap in with only 2 snaps that attach.
                      it is kind of bulky for such a small camera but you know its protected. the case forms well around the camera for multiple lens and doesn't get in the way of the straps.
                      the quality is well made, good leather!

                        Only good with the 28-70mm lens. Put on the 55-210 telephoto and you're out of luck!Otherwise, it is a good leather case, but limited in usefulness if you use anything but the basic lens.No wonder they're giving them away free! I suspect there would be a lot of returns if they really charged over $ !

                          This sony case is well made, good looking, and functional. I wish Sony would start making other leather goods, like jackets and belts. I mean this things is much nicer than most of the shoes in my closet. Its a good product (a little big, but good). I recommend it.
