Program A vs Super A

Not really a versus but I wasn't sure how to condense the question to a title. I have a Program A and have seen a half case for a Super A. Question is, are they physically the same size?

The database gives the same dimensions and weight for both.

I wouldn’t buy a Pentax original half case from that era. They are made from very poor quality synthetic material that has cracked/disintegrated on all the examples I have seen. On ebay there are sellers in china that make leather half cases for most popular cameras at reasonable price. I have a few of these and they are nice.

I got the half case. It adds a little to the depth of the camera which is a shame because its size is a big selling point, but it now feels great in the hand and looks rather swish. This whole minty rig now stands me at £25 ($32) and I love it
