The case is a good fit for my a5100 with the 18-200 mm lens attached. The lens hood, detached, fits comfortably in the nose of the case. Additionally, there are pouches in the back flap for two batteries and an SD card. The camera can be stored in the case with shoulder/neck strap attached, and a small loop strap on the case can be used to dangle the empty case from the camera shoulder/neck strap or belt loop, etc. The case folds down neatly into a compact mode to fit the camera body plus the 16-50 mm lens. The old 18-55 mm lens is too long for the case in compact mode, while in the fully extended configuration there's quite a bit of extra room in the nose of the case; however, that space can be used for a couple extra batteries, the lens hood, or other small items. I purchased this case for sightseeing situations, when I want to travel light and spend the day with just the camera, one lens and some batteries, but I want some protection while getting in and out of the car, stopping for meals, etc. I will also use the case at family gatherings where I tend to leave my camera unattended for part of the time.

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.

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

      I do love the design, but the 3 stars Is do to the cheap material that Sony use " Polyuletene " What can I say if you want to cary your A6000 and look cheap be my guess.

        nice addition to my camera

        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.

            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.

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

                I've been using the NEX-5N for a couple years now with a 1855 lens and also the 55210 lens. While using the 1855 lens I can use an old school leather case like the LCS-EJC3, but when I put the 55210 zoom lens on, I had to resort to a gadget bag which was cumbersome. BUT now with this expandable jacket style case, I can have that quick-off functionality like the LCS-EJC3 and have it fit my camera with either lens. The zipper extender on the case to allow longer lenses is brilliant. Now I can have my NEX5N with the 55210 lens at a quick draw using this case. So happy...
