-The case protects my Nex 5N very well
-Opens easily and quickly
-Detachable body portion can be kept on to protect the camera without the lens protection.
-Inner lining is very soft and I expect it to prevent scratches.
-Very fitted, it will not allow any space to hold the flash or any accessories
-The screw(large round black thing with 2 small buttons around it) that attaches from the case to the tripod receptacle does not fit very well because of the inner-lining of the case. You have to screw it in pretty hard to get it close and even then, there is a small amount of space. Just a minor gripe that bothers the crap out of me.
-Will probably be using my CaseCrown sling bag ([...])and Sling Strap (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005DPOTXG) more often because I can have my flash. But I'll keep this case for other things.
A week after I got it, one of the buttons on the case completely broke off and I was not able to fix it as it broke in such a way that was unfixable. Luckily, Amazon allowed me to return it and hopefully they issue my refund as soon as they get it.
I'm not sure if this will be the case with all these cases and it's quite possible that my case may have been defective, but I don't think I want to take the chance again and order another. Instead, I'll be ordering something else this time.
Color aside, I intend to return this case because I don't think it fits the camera well. It fits okay, but not tight like a glove or some other camera cases I've had in the past. In its defense, the NEX 5r probably is not the easiest camera to build a case for, but I still think they could have done better.
Also, while it fits the 18-55mm lens, it does not fit it well if you use the lens hood, though It can be reasonably forced over the top if you don't want to remove the lens hood every time.
For anyone using filters, the case has enough room in the front of the 18-55mm lens to also accommodate at least two filters. (I tried with a UV + small polarizer). Assuming you still need the hood with all that, I was still able to force the case over it all, though it was starting to get pretty tight.
On my scale, the case I received adds an additional 158g (5.6oz) to the camera which for perspective weighs about 486g (17.1oz) (18-55mm lens included).
The case not having a space for the flash is what originally drew me to buying it verses some other similar cases because I don't use the flash anyway and really wanted it to pack as small as possible.
Pros: I can easily access the camera without taking it in and out of a case. This case allows you to simply undo one snap and slide the case back over the camera. This is definitely useful if you're walking around with the camera across your body but you don't want to accidentally bump into something and damage it.
Cons: The screw for the tripod mount is just a few millimeters off from where it should be. That means it sticks up and doesn't let the camera sit comfortably in this case. It is still possible to use the case, but over time it will probably annoy you to have a centimeter of space below the camera where it can't fit down in the case. I fixed this by having someone cut the tripod screw off and sand it down.
* You must remove the stock flash before placing in the case (minor annoyance, since it screws off on the NEX-5)
* You can't remove the battery or SD card with the fitted ("permanent") part of the case on--you have to unscrew it from the bottom, where it's attached via the threaded mounting hole.
Neither of these are a big deal, though we use the flash frequently, so it's nice to just have it on for a quick shot, rather than having to pop it out of the case and screw it in.
