Pentax MX leather half-case

I stumbled across this on eBay and thought some of my fellow Pentax MX owners might be interested:

Not cheap, but it is real leather. Now you can dress your MX like a Leica!

I have one ebay seller on my watchlist who is selling something close to this, although I'm not an MX-1 owner (unfortunately in Europe we don't have those huge rebates and special prices), so here it is for those who are owners:

I bought one of these a year or so ago. Very good quality, nice fit and feel. Makes th MX feel a bit larger, which some may like.

I can't find it now, but I've been tempted by the nicely made molded finger grips that someone makes and sells on eBay. I've seen them for the MX, ME Series, and K series. Even with my small hands, when it's cold out I feel like a nice deep finger grip would be handy!

I have a fake leather half-case, but real leather may have to come! Looks very sharp.

I have the MX metal grip, sold by an eBay seller in Korea. Unfortunately there's little clearance for the self-timer lever,
making operation of the DOF preview function extremely difficult. Too bad really; it's quite nice otherwise.

Be careful not to buy the MX-1 half case (that is a digital camera) if you want the MX case.... :-)
