This was so far the best investment for my camera as I go hiking alot and it give great protection to occasional bumps it receives. The buttons are at times hard to push because of the layer of rubber over them but if you use a bit of finger force you can usually make it work.
I bought this to protect my camera when traveling and I didn't want to carry my camera bag. With this on my Nikon D40 I feel comfortable just stuffing the camera in my carry on bag. I had to modify the armor - cut off some of the rubber that extended below the camera body base that prevented my quick attach tripod connector from attaching. Buttons are surprising easy to use. After reading other reviews I was expecting the buttons to be harder to use. I'm not using the lens protector. It didn't seem to stay on. My hands are on the medium to larger end of the scale and I find that with the camera armor on it makes the grip smaller. I like to walk around with the strap around my wrist while holding on to the grip but the armor makes this a little more difficult. Summary: good product that allows for modification to meet my needs. When I upgrade my camera I'll probably get the matching camera armor.
