Are the FA Limited lens pouches genuine leather?

... or are they made of PU/faux leather (like the DA limited pouches)?

Just curious. For the $50+ they charge for the pouches, you'd assume they must be genuine leather...

Cant speak of the AIV FA ltd's, but the MIJ FA ltd's I had (43 and 77) came with real genuine leather pouches that were also made in Japan.

Thanks for the info. The MIJ ones were the ones that came with the colored cases? (green/red/brown)

@Julie: Originally they came in colors and then later all the MIJ's had black cases. I don't know if the FA limited AIV have the same pouch as the older MIJ black pouches.

Pricing policies are not always that predictable.

I've just paid $140 for an original Pentax lens hood.

Both the leather pouches for my Black MIJ FA limited lenses are faux leather - not the real deal. However my FA43mm f/1.9 special just came in a Box, I can't recall if it had a pouch.

None of the Limited pouches have ever been real leather. I have early release models of each of the first three amigos and they are vinyl--tan/brown for the 43, green for the 77 and dark red for the 31...a step nicer than the thinner black DA Limited pouches, but not real leather.
