    This review is from: MegaGear ”Ultra Light” Neoprene Camera Case Bag for Sony NEX-5TL, Sony NEX-5R, Sony NEX-3N with Sony SELP1650, Sony A5000, Sony A5100 16-50mm Lens (Black) (Electronics)
    I purchased the Son NEX-5TL camera, as well as the suggested case (Sony LCS-VA15/B). While the Sony case is nice, it is entirely too large and allows excessive room for the camera to slide around (I estimate the camera fills no more than 60-70% of the main storage compartment). This case by MegaGear is absolutely perfect for the NEX-5TL and the attached 15-50mm lens. It’s a skintight fit (requires just a little effort to get in), but provides excellent bump and scratch protection for both the camera and the lens.

    Cons:
    -Due to the closure mechanism (velcro flap), I would not recommend this as a solo beach bag, as sand would easily slip in and scratch glass surfaces. A second bag (the Sony or to a slightly lesser extent the included suede bag) is recommended.

    As a side note, I did not realize that I had ordered anything other than a neoprene case. Opening the package and seeing both a super large/soft cleaning cloth and a luxurious suede bag as well completely made my day. MegaGear has exceeded my expectations!

    Fits my Sony Nex-3N, January 30, 2014

    Item was well packaged. Outer packaging is a cloth drawstring bag, inside is the actual camera bag wrapped in plastic. Includes the microfiber towel as shown in the product photo.

    This camera bag fit my Sony Nex-3N (with the pancake lens) perfectly with little wiggle room. There is no space in the bag for the strap once the camera is in the bag. The camera bag thickness is about the same as those neoprene cases for laptops. The flap of the case is secured by a velcro strip. Maybe not the best protection available, but I always keep the camera in the case in a backpack.

    I bought this case for my Sony NEX-5TL. I had a larger case, but it turned out to be too big to carry all of the accessories with me. Since I have a 64gb SD/XC card, I have plenty of space. I do wish I could tuck and extra battery in this case, but I can’t. I like it because it fits around the carrying strap with the flash installed, which is great. I would have given it a 5-Satr except it has NO space for anything else, although that is not the fault of the case, only I must put my extra battery in my pocket.
    Its not hard to get the camera out, and a little tiny bit of difficulty putting it in the case, but with more practice it should become really easy. I have almost dropped my camera twice since using this case because it is installed with strap attached, I had the tendency to think the strap was attached to the case. Only because I am so used to any case I’ve owned having its own strap. But again, this is solely my fault, so getting used to this case will solve this dilemma. I am not a klutz, its just that I have so many cameras and have developed systems that I have to get used to changing. Too many routines I guess. Over all, YES, I would buy this case again. It holds my camera at the ready and offers a secure means of carrying it without a huge case getting in the way.
