If you're thinking about adding an extra layer of protection to your Sony A7r II, then a half case might be a good idea.
I use leather cases on almost all my mirrorless cameras and have loved every one of them. The LIM'S genuine leather half case is no exception
The LIM'S Leather Cases for the Sony A7rII is made very well. They come in lots of funky colors but I ended up with the black and red. The case does add a bit of weight to the camera but also gives it a solid, protected feel.
When buying a new camera, I always like to pick up a few accessories to help keep the camera protected. Usually this includes a screen protector and some sort of grip or half case.
When I bought the Sony A7r, I never purchased a case and after about six months I ended up regretting it. The camera took a lot of extra wear that I wasn't really expecting. Mainly from using tripods.
Now after buying the Sony A7r II, I purchased a Gariz Half Case. The Alcantara model. And here is what I think.
Over the last few months I've been on the hunt for a good leather case for my X100T. My concern has been if the slimmer camera design would be an issue in these cases designed for the X100 or X100s. So as an experiment I decided to grab the Gariz, it seemed like the best option since it has a solid base which allows for a tripod mount.
