Close-fitting case for the K-01?

I'm wondering if there's a case that will *snugly* fit the K-01 with 40mm XS lens, and will attach to my belt?

Perhaps the most over-priced item in the whole Pentax arsenal.

Maybe that's their strategy, sell the K01 cheap and make a huge margin on the case...

Chopper check this one out .. Amazon.com: Pentax PTX-L80 Soft Leather Case for Optio MX Digital Cameras: Electronics

it's $10, has a belt attachment, nice soft leather, about a inch or so wider means room for an extra batt. not sure if it's the same rich corinthian leather as the $300 pentax item though~

B&H has one in their Pentax accessories too. I have one of the cases I'm thinking of at home and it fits great (though I don't have the mini40 to test, I'm potentially buying the mini40 just for this perfect case...it's too tight to fit with the FA43 or even the DA21 but should be perfect with the mini40 and is quite nice without a lens, but then you end up carrying a lens or two separately which isn't ideal for this type of mini kit). I'm caught up in a work situation right now but will try to send you a link later tonight--I just saw that case this weekend by scrolling through every Pentax accessory that B&H offers. The case I'm talking about is padded vinyl, has belt loop and shoulder strap, velcro flap and is a top loader (camera vertical). It's really great for the K-01 and has just enough room for a spare battery underneath the camera.

Bad news, no case listed at B&H anymore. I scrolled through everything in Pentax Accessories, Pentax Digital Accessories and Pentax Used...it's not there anymore. I was kind of surprised to see it a few days ago since it's a long discontinued item...Oh well, sorry.

An answer, but perhaps not the answer the OP was looking for...

Although you mentioned the specific camera and lens combo; here's one that is somewhat close... Try the LowePro Rezo110 aw. The "aw" gives it the added all weather quite resistant cover. It also has a bit of added room. Depending on the size of a secondary lens (an one attached to the camera) one can fit a bit more in there than just the camera body and the xs lens.

When I'm able to make do with not too much gear... I'll have the Pentax K-01 with two lens in the bad, in addition to the xs I'll fit in a larger than average sized 50, the Pentax 50 macro, and there's still a bit of room to spare.

One could also use items such as the LowePro bag finder to add or subtract sizes to see what fits

I bought the same case as digital029art, and it is one fine leather case.
If you can live with Optio in red letters on the lid.

Ernie, that's not what I'm looking for. The Optio bag fits perfectly. Already bought it
