Top customer reviews
I was looking for a travel case for my Sony NEX-6 &Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* E 24mm F1.8 ZA Lens combo that would protect the camera and lens while packed inside my Tumi Luggage T-Tech Network T-Pass Expandable Laptop Brief (a great bag!). The case (with camera) fits inside the main compartment (without being expanded) perfectly. I don't need a daily-use carry case, just one the will protect it while in the bag from the other contents in the bag while traveling.
To reiterate what several other reviewers have said: This is not a case that in which you can quickly store and removed the camera. It takes a little work and coordination to get it in there, and back out again. The upside of this is that it adds very little bulk with a lot of protection. This is a 5-star product for this use case.
**If you want this as a daily-use carry case for easy access, then it's definitely a 2-star product. It'll hold the camera, but will frustrate you and not provide adequate drop protection.**
Reading the other reviews and the product specs I could not get a good feeling for if it was a good fit for my setup. One 1-star review flat out stated that it didn't fit the NEX 6. I took a chance an ordered it anyway (I don't give much weight to 1-star reviews, or short 5-star reviews for that matter). For this combo it is perfect. The NEX 6 body is larger than the NEX 3/5. A NEX 3/5 would be loose in this case (and other reviewers have said so). The NEX 6 fits perfectly in the body section of the case. The case snugs the camera very nicely (not stretched and no extra room). My Sony Zeiss 24mm lens fits very well in the lens section of the case with the hood attached in the reverse position (see my customer image). The 16-50 zoom lens that came with the camera would, of course, fit inside, and there would be a lot of excess room in the case (enough to pack a pancake lens too, there's an idea...).
For reference (and helping other decide if it'll fit) the Zeiss lens extends just under 3.25 inches from the front of the camera body, and there is about 0.5 inches of room left in front of the lens when inserted into the case. The hood on the lens has a diameter of 3.0 inches and fits in the case with just a little room to spare (for maybe a 3 3/4" max diameter fit).
This case might be too small for any lens that extends more than 3.5 inches from the face of the camera. (I'm measuring from not from the face of the silver mount ring, but the black face of the camera body.) Several of the Sony zoom 200/210 lenses are probably right on the edge of fitting. Unfortunately one cannot trust the dimensional specifications on the Sony website because there are completely wrong for the Zeiss lens (the actual lens being 1/2" longer and 1/2" wider than specified). If you already have the lens then use my guidelines (max extension: about 3.75", max diameter: 3.75") to decide if it will fit.
Previous reviewers have mentioned that the snaps are exposed on the inside bottom of the case where the bottom of the camera body rests. This is true. Over time I'm sure that this will leave cosmetic blemishes on the camera body. I will attempt to avoid this by placing two soft-side hook-and-loop dots (like these Velcro Dots, but purchased locally) over the snaps. I suspect the use of snaps was a design trade-off against using a simple hook-and-loop fastener strip. (I would have preferred a hook-and-loop over snaps, but that might compromise the fit for larger camera that require a little stretching).
I have no comments on the included card reader other than it fits well in the small zipper pocket on the back of the case. I'll probably never use it. That small zipper pocket will hold an extra battery nicely (without the card reader). That's probably a far better use for the pocket.
(updated 3/25/2013 to clarify and add detail and add product links)
It's a good fit. There is some extra play around the lens section, but I'm fine with that. It's a little snug on the width of the camera, requiring just a small amount of finessing to get the camera in. I leave the EVF hood, lens cover, UV filter, and lens hood on all the time. The bag easily accommodates my setup.
This would've been a four star review, but as I was unpacking the case the little SD card reader fell out. I completely forgot! This was an extra win for me as I don't have a card reader for my main editing rig (I know, I know). It's a good compact size. The packaging states that it is USB 2.0 and, without doing extensive speed testing, can attest that it read my card quickly.
I got mine on sale (around $10, I think) and am very, very satisfied with my purchase. If anything changes, though, I'll post an update!
I'd like to point out that I'm not so picky about scratches on my camera so a soft case like this suffices. If I had a more expensive piece of equipment, I'd go for a harder case to protect it from scratches and dents.
