    For anyone in the UK and Ireland hoping to avail of the Panasonic DMC-GX7 promotion , I received this email from Panasonic today which confirms the model number for the case -

    Dear Sir,

    As far as we are aware there is only one case for the models, and the model number is PS-572KK.

    Kind regards,

    Are you sure about that code?

    I am seeing another kind of case... a half case for the GX7 with code number DMW-CGBX7-K

    likewise.. that is what i have found out as well... but the original reference that beaker1977 has submitted is matching from what i have got told from panasonic rep many weeks ago also. but it does not match what is showing up on panasonic website with leather cases..... however when i spoke with the panasonic rep at one of the GX7 preview weekends, she has confirmed that it is definitely a two part case but was not too sure of the cover piece.....

    The reason I contacted Panasonic was I was hoping it was the DMW-CGK22 as featured here

    I've pre-ordered the GX7 with 20mm lens so this would have been perfect...

    Unfortunately, it seems to be a generic case for everybody with space to spare for the stock zoom even if you buy it with the 20mm. Amazon.co.uk have a listing for the GX7KIT as mentioned in the promo - here

    This, along with Panasonic's email, seems to confirm it's exactly as pictured on the promo page... At least you get a free battery as well... Beggars can't be choosers I suppose!

    My case has arrived. Photographs another time, but:

    DMW-CGK24KK

    It's a leather half-case that screws onto the tripod mount, with a completely detachable leather hood with space for lens. The camera strap mounts are the only bits that aren't covered.

    I hate it already :) Makes the camera too bulky and because I don't use a strap on the camera, I have no way to carry it. But it's useful to have so I'm keeping hold of it, and it came with the spare battery so well worth getting anyway, given Panasonic provided them for free.

    From the box:
    I haven't tested yet but I reckon my Oly 45mm would fit too.
