Not meant for the Sony A5100
on January 23, 2015
The product page states this case will fit the Sony A5100... That's sort of true. At first it will not fit. I stuffed it in there, really having to cram it in. Even then, it was partially sticking out, all the corners and edge stitching was not aligned with the camera's corners and edges and the velcro didn't match up. Like way off. After sitting the A5100 in the case for about 4 days, the neoperene case stretched out and it is now easier to fit the camera in. It is still not aligned properly, but at least it is now closing & covering all of the camera and the velcro closure matches up. Now that it's stretched out, it "fits" but it is like a puzzle trying to get it back in to fit the new stretched form. It is definitely not an easy in/easy out maneuver. Plus, I end up pushing all the buttons and having to grab the lens dial in order to manipulate the camera into the case.
Bottom line is that I think this case is meant for the NEX line, not for the A5100. I cannot recommend this if you are buying this for the A5100. I cannot comment if it fits any other camera. Also, the case smells heavily like petroleum out of the bag.
