Leather half case for the K-1?

I am really surprised to be unable to find a protective leather half case for the K-1. Nothing from Ricoh, Lugi, Gariz, KenjiLeather or any other common aftermarket vendors. Anyone have a lead to a source?

Wow, that takes me back. I'd forgotten all about those things.

Yes I saw that, it looks like some Leica accessory from the 1950s.

Not the look you were going for?

You might do well to use the search term "ever-ready case" since, I believe this is the name of the type of case you're looking for.

But, after looking around a bit, I've come to the conclusion that you'll have to commission a leather maker to make on custom for you; that is, if your pockets are deep enough. No leather cases exist for Pentax DSLR's that I've ever seen, though there are a few PU options floating around online (just not for the K-1).

Sorry I can't be of more help, best of luck!

I remember using that sort of thing on my LXs, but they had to go as the didn't incorporate provision for motor drives or winders.
