    Hi all,

    Weirdly specific question today!

    I really like these sorts of vintage bags:
    Leica Brown Leather Case for M3 Rangefinder Camera Body Germany | eBay

    That have just enough room to hold the camera and a small lens. I have the Panasonic GH2 with the 14-42mm X Pancake lens and I'd love to be able to have something that I can wear around my neck that detaches at a moment's notice to take photos. As opposed to my bigger bulkier bag that can fit a mic and stuff in it.

    I'm in LA and I've found there's a lack of used camera stops around here, so I take it I'll have to go online. I just don't want to order a case that won't fit. I also can't figure out if there's a name for the style I'm talking about above.

    Alright, enough rambling. Thanks!

    For the price, you may be in the ballpark of looking at a custom leather case. I am going to be abroad for 9 months, but am looking at doing something similar (starting with a half case, and then the cover) for my G3. Not offering to build it for you, but giving an idea to look at.

    Nevermind, I looked at the prices for the 6x6 member's link. No way anyone would touch a case like this for less than about 125-150, and may be upwards of 200+. But you would get the option of customizing it to fit your camera exactly. Just an idea.
