Pentax Limited Lens Case I vs II

I have seen the Pentax Limited lens case II on sale at B&H, but not the lens case I. Is case I for the 3 amigos I am wondering? Can I find it anywhere?

I couldn't find the case you were referring to at B&H. However, I do have one of the Pentax Limited cases, but it was apparently designed for the APS-C Limiteds. I use it to carry two of the three FA Limiteds at a time, sometimes others. It's a good design, well-cushioned and easy to carry either with its own sling-strap or fitting neatly in a backpack – either way, I find it's more convenient than carrying two lenses in separate pouches.

OK, thanks. Mine must be Case I, because it only has two dividers, and it certainly wouldn't fit five DA Limiteds.

I have the three lens version. It works well for what it is. If I can dig it up Iíll try to review it with at least two of the fa limited lenses as I no longer own the fa 43.

I have the longer version and don't seem to find much use for it. I tend to pack a camera in a sling bag with a couple lenses, either separated by dividers or 'lens wraps' to protect them from bumps and scrapes in the bag.

The long narrow lens case often is too much for me (don't usually anticipate needing or using all five lenses) and too little (not really suited for SD cards, batteries, cables, straps, other misc items) with no room for the camera when I want to put everything down, protected, for a sandwich.

The OP is considering one, if you want to sell yours. Just saying.

Thank you for all the replies. Yess I am considering one, but since I live in Turkey and PayPal is not available at the moment, it is hard for me to pay individuals. The only option would be the credit card and that only works for stores usually.

Find out if any reshipping service works with individual PayPal sales. Hereís an example service I saw - I didnít vet it or verify this functionality- this is simply an example of the type of service Iíve read about.
