Form Fitting Case

I need suggestions for an alternative "Zing-type" very compact, form fitting case for a K-X with a DA 21mm Limited lens. Even the smallest standard Zing leaves a little too much unused lens space for this setup. With such llimited call for such an item, does it even exist?
As a matter of fact, with the emphasis placed on the compact qualities of their equipment, I'm a little surprised & disappointed that Pentax doesn't offer some sort of a case such as this themselves.

I have this case that works for my K-X and DA 40. It may be a bit too tight for the DA21 though.

That may be the solution (albeit, a costly one..... case - $21.95 + DA 40 - $359.95) I've been looking for. I guess I'll just have to suffer the indignity of being forced to use a Limited lens more than I had initially anticipated (please don't pity me, as we all have our cross to bear).

Just received the LensCoat you recommended to coat my Kx sporting the DA 40 Limited I was forced into buying to accommodate this case. Very pleased..... this is just what I was looking for..... Thanks.

Yes, how convenient that you just HAD to get a DA 40 in order to fit this case! Hah! Enjoy the portability of your camera with the DA 40; it's a great lens that is so small and light!

UPDATE.....
Fantastic visual/ding protection for an ultra-light/small DSLR go everywhere street shooting kit (especially with the addition of a pouched 21mm Limited slipped into a pocket, which I've discovered, to my delight, also fits [just]...., at least when mounted on a KX). Easily & quickly peels off to a partially removed photo taking position, or completely removed & crumpled up to fit into a pants or shirt pocket. Highly recommended for a particular style of shooting.

Glad it's working out for you! I enjoy it a lot too; sure beats having a camera bag to have to put down on the ground or carry around.
