Didn't work for me,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic Genuine Leather Case for the Panasonic Lumix LX5 (Camera)
I am posting my review of this case as I felt fooled by the ones already here. I thought OK, so long as it works well it might be worth the (excessive amounts of) money - but sent it straight back after a quick try.
Basically this is the case for an old fashioned viewfinder style camera - with an LCD screen it just doesn't make sense, as the opening part has to come off both front and back - you end up with most of the case hanging off the camera by a press stud. It just about works if you definitely want to use the neck strap - but with a wrist strap this case just gets in the way. Also I use my camera for work and frankly felt I would look a wally with the dangly bit flapping about. Finally, my main reason for wanting a case is so I can chuck the camera in my bag and not worry about it - but this case has holes in it, so would end up with sandwich crumbs and crisps inside.
The frustrating thing for me is that Panasonic seem to think this is job-done for the LX5 case - whereas for instance Sony do cheap, compact cases for their high end compacts. Unfortunately the LX5 doesn't quite fit and I've ended up with a Tamrac case that's good, but a bit bulkier than the camera needs.
