I got this case for my Z5
Sony : LCS-G1BP (LCSG1BP) : Product Overview : Greece

I found it quite good and spacious. Cost me Euro130

Try a Petrol PCCB-1-N. I have one for the FX1000.

KTCC193 Kata GDC Series CC-193 HDV SLR Camera System Bag with TST Protection.
This is the one I got. First purchased the 191, but it was too small!

Bob what ever you get make sure that it protects the camera well from accidental impact. Z5 is an expensive camera therefore don't be stingy on a carrier bag.

I'll second that. Nothing to touch it at the price. Had mine a few years now and it still looks good.

Don't walk though with that bag in your back in any street in Rome, Paris, London, Athens, Madrid, e.t.c.

You can have that bag on your back if you carry a big Manfrotto monopod in your hand...

Many recommendations for the Cinebag cb-25 for the HMC 150. I am waiting for mine to be delivered.
