Had my new hd5 approx 1 hour!! So very quick impressions. Got black one - build feels very good ( except for the sliding "door" to usb/power sockets.) You slide across at suddennly it is "hanging " by a corner !!?? I thought it was broken at first then realised it's designed that way!! Then remembered a similar door "connector/cover " on my sony p7 camera - still going strong after approx2 or 3 years!! LOL. Quick question - the manual ( well, printed quick start guide - manual is a pdf) says under list of "enclosed" = "carrying case". I'd seen pictures ( japenese sites?) of a nice leather(look?) snug fit case with cutouts etc etc. What I got in my box was just a simple soft bag ( bit like my sony ex71 headphones came with - but without the drawstring top!!) Is that it?? Anyone got any experience of the "proporta" ( I think) case which is aluminium/leather ?! Expensive but sounds good to me!!
