Size: NEX5 18-55mm Verified Purchase
I bought this 16-55mm version so I could use the zoom underwater, must admit, I was curious when ordering how they had designed it so the zoom could be used as it's not a powerzoom like you'd find on a compact where a lever can be used to zoom in and out. Sadly, unless I have missed something glaringly obvious, there is no way to use the zoom facility, so you would have to decide what length you want the zoom to be at before closing the casing. The 16mm pancake version would seem a better bet as at least you know that you are just using one fixed length and wouldn't have the frustration of having a zoom lens on the camera but not being able to actually use it!

That one, fairly big, issue aside, the casing is pretty sturdy and well designed and a very good price as such. I may consider the 16mm version at some point in the future just so I can use the NEX underwater at a reasonable price. Returning the item was a no fuss process and I had a refund within 72 hours of return, so hats off to Amazon for that.

i bought this item without any user review so i didnt know what to expect. I'm glad i got it. I used it for diving in bali, water park slides and jet ski. I have a sony NEX-5N and it fits well. The reason why i didn't give it 5 stars is because the play button on the NEX-5N isn't aligned with the play button in the case, I had to attach a piece of plastic with super glue to it to make them touch.

You cannot zoom using your lens underwater. Which is a problem with most cases. The case is very strong and durable. Absolutely no leaks occurred even in extreme situations. Picture quality through the case is good. All the other controls work fine except for video taking with the NEX-5N

I received this case as a gift December 2012 and took it on holiday.

Pro's
The case is really well made and sturdy...
and actually works well underwater

Cons
For my NEX5 the record button doesn't reach the switch so you cannot record while in the casing

The pressure from being underwater - even at 2 meters, means i cannot change options underwater. I have to stick to
intelligent Auto. if i choose the shooting wheel in options, the display goes crazy as the pressure of the water simulates pushing the screen all over the place

thirdly, on the NEX5 to use the flash you need to place it from resting to upright to get it to work. being in the casing you cant access the flash so it doesn't work

if you want a camera to just take simple pics, use this casing otherwise, id go elsewhere.

As the previous review mentioned, you can't zoom which is a minor inconvenience.
Have been able to fit the SEL50mm F1.8 onto my NEX-5N into this case as well. I bought this case fully aware that it was for the NEX-5 camera. My camera is a NEX-5N. Apart from having to press more buttons through the menu because both the review button and video button for the NEX-5N don't align with this case, I've had no problems.

For a relativity inexpensive case it looks and feels solid, and has seen me take my camera behind waterfalls, on glaciers, swimming etc.

A good purchase that does the job.

Excellent case, completely airtight and water proof as suggested. I had looked online previously for cases and found most retail for over £300-£400+ so I was dubious about this one given how cheap it is. I was happily proved wrong.

We used this to while snorkelling in Iceland and managed to capture some stunning videos and photos. The Camera floats when it's inside this case, which make it safer.
