Because of my problem scrolling down a page (see earlier post). I'm posting a new thread for sept8001. I recieved the case a couple of days ago (took a while as coming from Hong Kong) It's faux leather, but looks and feels quality. Does a good job of protecting the XF1, It will be a bit tight if you're gonna get the stick-on grip, I bought one without looking at the case first. I might fit it and see what it's like though. Anyway.... IMO this case does a fine job and is well worth the money, but be prepared to wait a while for it.
