Let's be realistic; the reason we buy things like camera half-cases is because we think they look good. We can mumble about scratching the hard-as-diamonds base plate, or getting a better grip with the little bump on the front, but it's really about looks.
Ordinarily, I would have given this 5 stars. It's very well made and fits the camera perfectly. One reviewer mentioned that the mounting hole was slightly off center, but that was not a problem with mine - it lined up perfectly. A minor point is that the stitching on the one I received is gray, whereas the stitching in the photos is red. I liked the red stitching, but like I wrote, this is a minor issue. The included hand strap is also high quality and a nice extra.
The half-case looks really good, stitching is pretty good, leather feels like good quality and it's an authentically retro look on a camera designed to evoke the precision and simplicity of a rangefinder film camera. My one complaint was that the hole in the bottom where you screw it onto the camera was about 1/16th of an inch off and I had a hard time getting the screw into the tripod hole. I would have tried stretching the hole out but it has a metal sleeve inside to keep the hole from getting out of shape, which is a great design feature if the hole is in the right place. I ended up working the bolt into the camera but only by pulling the leather over as far as I could to the right. I imagine this is a function of having an animal hyde case because between the time the leather is cut and the case gets to you, I could see that one part of the thing might age slightly differently pulling it one way or another. At any rate, I did get it to work, it looks great and it's really well-made. I'm leaving it at 5 stars because it's just a good value al around, imho.
I was a bit unsure about this when I bought it. It looks good and really does help improve the grip on the camera. Just enough to be helpful and not so much that it become an awkward protrusion. Overall, I just feel more confident holding the camera. Its altogether more 'handy' with either hand. I was wondering about the leather quality when I ordered it, but it seems very nice and I expect it to be long lived. But... I just don't get the wrist strap. This camera deserves a full neck strap and I would have gladly paid a few bucks more
I think this one is real animal leather. Some of the Chinese sellers have recently taken to calling PU (man made) leather "Real Genuine Leather". It reminds me of the generic auto parts that are labeled "Genuine replacement part".
This works great and I enjoy the retro look. The snap open flap gives easy access to the battery and the card. My only surprise was this was the half case just the bottom part. I intended to mostly use it just this way but I thought I was getting the top part as well that I could use occasionally with the pancake lens. This was my derp though and I should have realized it based on the reasonable price.
What can I say other than this is a great product. It is really well made. I can't believe the quality at this price. Looks wonderful on the camera. Adds to the retro look perfectly. Offers good protection. The battery compartment is easy to access. I absolutely love the hand strap and don't know what I used to do without it. The case adds a level of security when holding the camera that is not there in its naked form. In fact I was going to get a accessory grip but this is way better. And it is a steal compared to everything else out there. If you have a Pen-F you simply must buy this case. Six stars!!!!!
