Specific Panasonic leather case for the G3
Mar 1, 2012

I am looking for feedback on the Panasonic DMW-CGK12-K case. My question the following. It says that one can remove the front or lens cover part of the case. Does that mean the camera body part stays on the body or are the two parts permanently fixed together.....

If the body part stays then this will be the perfect accessory I am looking for, it will add a little to the grip, make the G3 more stable in the hand plus less slippery....

Anybody using this case.....are my assumptions correct?

I haven't seen this one yet but I do have the Panasonic leather case for the GF1. There are two pieces and they snap together when you use both but now I seem to use just the body case (which does add a bit more grip) and leave the lens case off since I leave the EVF attached most of the time. I have the lens case part for the 20/1.7 but the cover for the 14-45 was an option also. I bet the case for the G3, if a Panasonic case, would be similar.

Thanks for the info Dane....I have a similar for my E-PL2 and as your GH1 it has two parts. The case for the G3 is really expensive over here and that is why I wanted to confirm....
