OK, but not for me.,
This review is from: Black Hard PU Leather Case for PANASONIC LUMIX LX3, LEICA D-LUX,Canon Powershot SX210,S90 S95 Digital Camera as DMW-CLX3. (Electronics)
I purchased this because, although I am happy with the Lowepro Apex 60 AW bag which I purchased for hiking because it is padded, roomy and weatherproof, the Lowepro is a bit bulky and not what you would take on an evening out.
I wanted something compact and smarter, to go on my belt. This B&V case would certainly do the job of protecting the camera but I am returning it because I just didn't like the material. It felt like cardboard covered with imitation leather, clumsier and lacking the appeal of leather. Also as mentioned already, the aspect button on the LX5 lens can get caught and I didn't think that the case would adapt in shape the way leather does.
I also have the Amazon Basics case which came as a free offer when I bought the camera, and although the B&V case will fit inside it and the Amazon case is not weatherproof, it is sufficiently smart for everyday use unless I decide to splash out on the manufacturer's own case.
