The product is nice but when I bought it, surprise!! it comes only with the front part of the product. The part which goes attached to the camera you need to buy it separately however the photo of the product induces you to think that the product is only one thing.

This case is 1/2 the case needed for Sony Nex 5. This only covers the top portion of the camera and although it protects that portion of the camera, in order for this piece to function correctly or at all, you will need the bottom body case. If you have the smaller lens, you will also need another jacket to fit that lens. The case is great quality, has custom fit and it smells great (leather). My main gripe with this case is that it doesn't allow for you to leave the flash attached when the case is in use. Aside from that and cost once it's all said and done, I like the case because it allows you to keep the camera safe and protected without a lot of bulk. Just remember you can't keep your flash attached AND you are only 1/2 way to protection with this piece!

I have no complaints about this product. It gets the job done, looks slick, and isn't overly large. My only complaint is that there aren't any other options for a case for the NEX cameras and that Sony marks up the price. It also has to be combined with the Sony body case.

I never would have bought this had I known it was sold in two pieces for $110 total. That's a ridiculous price for a camera case. You can buy a decent point and shoot camera for that. The bottom part will work without the top, but not vice versa. I would suggest to anyone interested to buy an aftermarket case for $30 to $40.

+ Quality construction
+ Snug fit
+ Stylish

- Must also have $30+ body strap to use, so total will be around $80
- Must have neck strap/leash attached to use as camera body strap requires this
- Cannot keep flash attached while using
- Cumbersome to flip-and-use as a hood
- No space to stow away additional battery, main flash, or memory cards

My advice: get a Crumpler 1 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag

I was surprised to find out that I had only purchased 1/2 of a camera case. The photos of the jacket indicate that it is a complete camera case. It is true that I would have known this If I had read the "fine print" or had read the product reviews but I could not believe that Amazon would include misleading photos as a part of their advertisements. Surprise - you now have to buy the bottom half of the case which runs the cost up to $85.00 (+/-). This is a real rip off.

I have the same problem that all complaints on this review states. I also ordered this and was dupped that I only got the top cover. After reading the reviews thoroughly I found matching cases and model numbers all available at amazon.

This molde is for the NEX 5 ( I got the lens which is the product that I am writing this review on. The Matching Base is $73 which is lame.

LCS-EMB1A/B BASE
LCS-EML2A/B LENS

This is for the NEX 5N This is what I am going to go with. About $80 for the set.

LCSEB50/B Base
LCSEL50/B Lens

I hope this helps others trying to get this figured out. Since this case populates the search for NEX 5n cases on amazon and does not populate all the other cases. I would also recommend going to sony's camera site and go into accessories page to find the correct model numbers for your camera then search for it on amazon that is what I did. Mystery of the mismatch cases solved.

Whenever I consider the purchase of a new camera, the carrying case is an important accessory. Note the word "carrying". The carrying case is the protection utilized when transporting the camera and accessing the camera to use. I want a case that is as small as possible to protect the camera. I use separate pouches, bags, or my pockets to carry the accessories, such as spare batteries, flash, lens, cleaning supplies, etc. I do not want a single case for everything.

The Sony case is a quality product. With a 18-55mm lens attached, it conforms to the outline of the case well. As other reviewers have described, the images of the case make you believe the case could be excessively large, but it is not. Not much more can be said about this product other than it is a custom fit for the camera and 18-55mm lens and it is manufactured with quality leather.

Now, the negative of this product. There is a second product needed, the bottom Sony Alpha LCSEMB1A/B Leather Body Case, also described by other reviewers. The other characteristic that I have not seen emphasized in other reviews is the method that the bottom attaches to the camera. It essence the bottom case section has a leather loop (one on each side) that circle the camera's carrying straps. The typical method of attaching the bottom section of a camera's case is using the tripod mount screw opening. A knurled knob typically screws into the recessed bolt tap in the camera's bottom, making the attachment very secure. Making this attachment method worse is that I do not like using a neck strap for smaller, non-SLR cameras. I like a wide wrist strap connected to one side of the camera. When I do this for this camera, the second side of the bottom case has nothing to attach the loop, so only one loop is holding the camera's bottom case to the camera. I rigged a second attachment using a black nylon zip tie, locking it to the second loop. My attachment is fine, but I cannot completely remove the bottom case to access the battery compartment, however I can swing the case out of the way. I made the bottom section work, but Sony should stick with the conventional case bottom attachment design, i.e. knurled knob screwed into tripod mount hole.
