Pentax LX leather case alternatives?

Can anybody provide any info as to which of the Pentax cases are suitable for my mint LX body?
I know that the lens size etc will have a bearing on this but would like any pointers as to the most suitable

I think the only case that will fit is the LX case

AFAIK only the LX case will fit. Ffordes have one for sale at the moment but I only saw it listed among some other Pentax items so I don't know what sort of condition it is in

The Pentax LX eveready case is made of soft, fairly thin leather. I paid about $70 for mine in excellent used condition.
It is definitely better quality than other Pentax cases but IMO not worth that sort of price.

The Pentax LX case fits the LX body with standard lens and eyelevel prism finder only.
IMPORTANT: It will not fit with LX Grip A or B attached.

Luigi or Kameraleder can probably make you a full or half case, but it will likely cost more than your LX body.
I'm not sure if there is a Chinese alternative.

I checked Ebay and didn't see any LX cases.

I recently purchased a case for my Canonet from a Chinese manufacturer and I see they sell MX and ME cases, too.
But sadly, no case for the LX.

BTW - the aftermarket case fits well and makes the old gal look smashing!

Just not that much demand for LX cases, I guess.

Gotta a feeling from my old memory that you were able to buy different lens pouch parts of the case to fit various lenses, interchangeable by inverting the half moon clasp thingy, you can tell I'm technical.
