    I've been scanning ebay for several weeks, but no signs of any leather cases. Any idea if/when the asian manaufacturers will get something to market? Were they pretty quick to get g3 cases out?

    Just out of curiosity, what is the purpose of a "half case"? I don't see how it would improve the ergonomics of a camera like the G5. Or is it for protection of some of the surfaces? Or....??

    For me, it's mostly about the looks, a little bit for softer feel (more so than ergonomics), and lastly for some protection.

    Ah... What does one do with the other half of the case?

    I am fairly rough with my equipment--not that I tend to go into extreme environments--but I try not to baby it. Afterall, cameras are a tool. So yeah, it would be nice to have a case to prevent little dings as I let it swing wildly off my sling strap.
