What Karen says makes a lot of sense.  I did the same thing with my cameras 
for years.  I even had a IIIf case where the top half fell off, and I kept 
the camera in the bottom half.  It cushioned the occasional bump, and gave 
my big hands a little more thickness to wrap around.

Somehow, though I haven't gotten around to getting a case for my current M 
cameras.  The current M cases seem awkward and too thick and hard.  My old 
IIIf case was just right.

Ted is 100% right that an *entire* "neveready" case is worse than 
useless.  It's a guarantee that you'll miss shots.
