Pentax K-01 Compact Case

I have a Golla Bag large enough to carry the K-01 with lenses & accessories, I wanted to get a protective case for my K-01, so I can carry it in the automobile console, coat pocket, etc. w/o fear of loosing the 40mm lens cap or causing damage to the camera. I found a very nice, small case at Walmart for $14.00, and thought perhaps there are others who would appreciate such a case for their new Pentax K-01. Case Logic has produced a Compact Camcorder Case (MSEC4) that will fit the K-01 almost perfectly. It comes in Black or in Dark Blue. The case has a molded protective hard shell front & back and a retractable handle system (a shoulder/neck strap is also included). Inside is a tilt-out padded camera cradle (pocket), which makes it very easy to remove or replace the camera. Over-all size is 6.3"x4.75"x3". The DCPI for the MSEC4 Compact Camcorder Case is 0008585419958 (Dark Blue) and 0008585419857 (Black). Incidentally, this case is large enough to carry the K-01 camera/DA40mm XS lens, spare battery, two or three spare memory cards and lens cleaning cloth. Also, you will find that it is less expensive if ordered on-line. Hope this helps someone.

Here are a few shameless plugs and some ideas...

Not sure if Tamrac still makes it, but... The 5220 as a somewhat tight fit for the K-01 with the (new) 40.

But if I might strongly suggest... LowePro makes one of their slip-lock cases that woul easily fit the K-01 and it has a type of water-resistant cover. They also make a waist pack that will hold a few options - also with rain cover.

But what do i know; I consider the LowePro DZ200 or Tamrac 787 to be small bags for me.

WWWen, what's the maker/model of the strap? Seems to be a great match for the K-01. A neck strap for it seems too much for me. The bag I presume is a normal P&S bag, correct?

Some of us use the neck strap as a brace to steady the cam for MF lenses.
