Rated 4 out of 5
by Jobber Works well for the NEX-5.
I bought a NEX-5N today with the 18mm pancake lens, and naturally wanted to protect my expensive investment. I looked at the case "designed for" the NEX cameras, but it honestly looked really junky and didn't have any side pockets for filters, memory cards, or lens caps. I got this Handycam case instead, and it's better AND $10 cheaper!
This case's main pouch fits the NEX 3/5 (probably the 7 too), the 18-55mm lens, the 18mm pancake lens, the lens hood, and either the battery charger OR small compact-size Joby Gorilla Pod... with a little room to spare. You _might_ be able to fit it all in if you squeeze, but it's probably not a good idea. Then, the 3 outside pockets are left for filters and whatnot. Inside there is a removable and movable divider that attaches to the inside of the pouch with velcro. That's actually really clever and lets you store the NEX with either lens attached.
The only bad points are 1) the shoulder strap isn't removable and 2) the zipper design can be tricky sometimes. This is because of how the zippers go back so far to allow the top to open and the little "overhang" on the top flap. But overall these aren't deal breakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Topman still not big enough
Overall of this case is pretty good, very nice design and it's light. However, it's still small if you want to put your charger and 18-55mm lens with lens hood in the case. You will find it's going to be hard to close it.
