I'm not a Rollei owner and have no axe to grind, but how much do you think the original Rollie cases would cost today new if they were still made today ?, and these are a hand made Italian leather luxury products for people to whom the quality is more important than the financial cost, people who don't wish to pay the price can always buy one of the original Rollei ones on an auction site.
Fully agreed Ben. I rarely use a case as I prefer to use my camera than mollycoddle it. Most cameras look better 'commando' than wrapped up anyway
My point was that this is not an unreasonable amount for him to charge.
