Does What it Should
on March 10, 2015
Not too fancy, and a little pricey for the leather quality. I do wish that it was offered with a front / top cover for protection during transport or storage, something closer to an old fashioned eveready case. That said, the full cases that I looked at before deciding on this unit looked pretty crude.
The strap is adjustable and comfortable, but what isn't seen in the product shots is that each end is made up of about 24" of narrow (3/8") nylon web material. It's probably the right choice in design in order to make the fit adjustable, but it is a little surprising to see when you first open the package.
I bought the half case for looks, I wanted my X-E2 to look even a little more retro. Even as I type this I'm a little shocked that I feel that kind of vanity with a camera! In fact I would have preferred a more distressed looking case with an uneven finish and dark burnished edges, but the available choices cost twice as much and take weeks to arrive. I guess my vanity has its limits...
Buy this case for the slight protection it provides the camera, for the retro look, and for the price. I purchased this one after applying for the Amazon Rewards card so after the instant one-time $70 savings it cost me $8.75.
