Especially one that is minimal in size and has a belt hook or clip? Something for carrying the camera only, not a camera bag for all the accessories and your lunch :-)

FZ1 or FZ3 owners, what's your favorite one?

This one fits my FZ3 perfectly with the lens hood on. It opens to the top and has just enough extra room for a spare battery, sd card and a filter or two in the front pouch. The shoulder strap works well for me to carry the bag with but it also has a belt loop on the back.

There's a very nice looking hard shell case near the bottom of this review (http://www.fotoaparat.cz/article/10106/1) which looks as if it could be specially designed for the FZ-5. I can't find any other info about it though. I wouldn't mind one myself.

The review was linked to from photographyblog but is in Czech so I can't read it.

If anyone has seen them for sale then let us know!

Sorry, bad links really annoy me. I think it's just because there's a bracket on the end of the link that shouldn't be there. So it should be:

Mystery solved. The case in the article is Panasonic's own case, but for some reason I've only found it on their German site. Still, having the part number might help in your own countries:

I have a Crumpler bag for my FZ5 - Ben's Pizza Small. Pretty good fit and can hold a spare battery / sd card in the front pouch. Very happy with it.

The case from Panasonic can be had here.

I got one with my FZ20 for free from Circuit City. I sold it cause it was small and a little girlish for me, but some may dig it.

I'm looking to find the smallest possible case that fits the FZ5, witn no lens hood or accessories. Bought the FZ5 because of size (Fz20 was only $39 more) and want the convenience of carrying it on a belt clip.
