Just Received Gariz half case for my X-E1 - Nice
Dec 10, 2012

Hi group,

Noticed a few posts recently inquiring about the Gariz case for the X-1E.  I just received one for my X-1E today and I'm glad to report that it is equal in every respect to the one I have on the X-Pro1.  Perfect fit, beautifully finished leather, and nicely finished protective metal bottom with full access to battery and SD card.  Tripod mount is well located, although not quite centered with lens plane (but closer than factory tripod mount).  I never use full cases (street work) and the half case solution gives a nice balance between some extra protection and quick access.  The Gariz case does not give the amount of body coverage as some of the other half cases, but seems to do a good job overall (I've used one on the X-Pro1 for some time).  An unexpected benefit; the extra padding in the grip area and the additional depth provided by the metal bottom makes the X-E1 a bit more comfortable in my hands, especially when gripping to shoot.  Only downside is the Gariz is a pricey for a half case.  (I have no association with Gariz).
