VC-1 case to fit Bessa R + 21/4

I searched but didn't see an answer to this. Does anybody know if the VC-1 case will fit a Bessa-R and a CV 21/4 with viewfinder. If not, what are my alternatives? I do a lot of hiking and backpacking and I'm looking for a case that I can throw inside my pack without worrying about damaging the viewfinder.

Much appreciated.

I don't know anything about the VC- 1 case but I've been using a CCS (the smallest "CobraHead" I think) bag with Leica Ms for about 15 years with no complaints. They seem to be very well padded and they'll take the camera with Voigtlander viewfinder on top (and Weston meter and Invercone at a pinch). Most importantly, they don't take up much space in a rucksack.

IF you are talking about the everready case made for the Bessa L and small lenses, then the answer should be yes, as I can fit my R3a and a 50mm summicron in it. However, you won't have the space to close it with the VF still in the hotshoe - the R series are taller than the L because of the RF.

Hope this helps,
