Having spent nearest part of £1000 on the NEX7 as an upgrade from the NEX 5 you have to go the extra mile for the proper case for it. Despite being hugely annoyed by the extortionate cost for Sony accessories I went ahead and bought this.
As you would expect of a genuine Sony accessory quality is excellent, fits the camera snugly.
For anyone else like me upgrading models it does end up quite a bit larger than the NEX 5 in its companion Sony case, still ok for carrying round on a day out though in your hand.
The two parts though common to these cases are a pain for camera in and out action but I accept this for the benefits of a tailored case for transit and storing the camera in. I can happily let it roll around in a back pack in this case.
I've seen a few immitations of these spring up for a lot less. Personally I'd never bother with one, materials, fit and the snobby knowledge at the back of my mind that I'd gone cheap on it all put me off!
Overall great case for the camera. Would be a more pleasant buy if Sony did'nt take you to town on the price but doubt anything will change there.
