Found a nice half case

She ain't no beauty by any means, but with the half case she looks even more serious than before *g*

search eBay for "ricoh m mount halfcase" and this is the only one that pops up. The seller is from Thailand and answers mails quickly and friendly. The quality of the "Squinno" branded case as well as the leather is pretty nice. I like it a bit better than the Zhou, but not quite as much as the A&A one for the M8.

I have a leatherette Squinno branded case for my Nex 5 from an ebay seller in the phillipines. It's pretty OK for a cheap case (black with red stiching). When I bought it it was Pbout the only one available for a reasonable price.

this one is actually real leather and it seems nicely made. Rather cheap too and with black stitching. And it is the only dedicated m module one that I know of as of yet

This one looks pretty sweet too http://item.rakuten.co.jp/hkb-store/c/0000000794/

Anyone have any good/bad feedback?
No tripod mount = deal breaker for me... maybe...

nice, really. And it comes with a color matched clyster!

the Squinno case has no tripod socket either, but I will try to replace the original screw with a different one tomorrow that itself has one

it is just a flat sunk screw with a slit for a coin. I already replaced it whit this:

now it is easier to put on/off and you can use a tripod.
Still, I'd just remove the case for that.

Thanks to kanzir's tip, I bought one of these cases and it's a fine piece of work. I'd say the quality is a tad better than Zhou's and the securing screw is very well done. Delivery was swift and the packaging surprisingly good. Beats paying Luigi 200 euros, though I'm sure his case is excellent. He needs to pare his prices back a bit and attract more adherents than he has. Not everyone has a bag full of M9s and Summicron Aspherics!. Thanks again for the tip, kanzir!
