Extremely good quality for the money, real leather
on May 23, 2014
Some reviews say it's not real leather. It is, you can smell it right away. It's nice and supple but quite sturdy. The color is just like in the photo and it looks like a really high quality item. The stitching is very nicely done and the snaps hold well but don't feel like you're going to have to tug them until they break to get them free.
Some commented that it's a bit long for the 10-30 kit lens, which is true but actually not if you've got it still in the "on" position. Yes I know, most of the time that you will have your camera in this case it will be turned off but if you're shuffling through a crowd and want to keep the camera protected (but still be able to take pictures fairly easily) you might button it up and leave the lens in the on (and therefore more extended) position. Taking a photo with the case still on is as simple as undoing the two side snaps and flipping the front of it out of the way.
Again, I can't emphasize enough how this looks and feels like an item that costs easily 4 times what it goes for.
