Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard1066 Good fit. Good versatility.
The case is a good fit for my a5100 with the 18-200 mm lens attached. The lens hood, detached, fits comfortably in the nose of the case. Additionally, there are pouches in the back flap for two batteries and an SD card. The camera can be stored in the case with shoulder/neck strap attached, and a small loop strap on the case can be used to dangle the empty case from the camera shoulder/neck strap or belt loop, etc.
The case folds down neatly into a compact mode to fit the camera body plus the 16-50 mm lens. The old 18-55 mm lens is too long for the case in compact mode, while in the fully extended configuration there's quite a bit of extra room in the nose of the case; however, that space can be used for a couple extra batteries, the lens hood, or other small items.
I purchased this case for sightseeing situations, when I want to travel light and spend the day with just the camera, one lens and some batteries, but I want some protection while getting in and out of the car, stopping for meals, etc. I will also use the case at family gatherings where I tend to leave my camera unattended for part of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillieDesign Finally, the NEX dream case!
I've been using the NEX-5N for a couple years now with a 1855 lens and also the 55210 lens. While using the 1855 lens I can use an old school leather case like the LCS-EJC3, but when I put the 55210 zoom lens on, I had to resort to a gadget bag which was cumbersome. BUT now with this expandable jacket style case, I can have that quick-off functionality like the LCS-EJC3 and have it fit my camera with either lens. The zipper extender on the case to allow longer lenses is brilliant. Now I can have my NEX5N with the 55210 lens at a quick draw using this case. So happy...
