Battery Grip?

I am looking to buy a KR and was wondering if it is compatible with a battery grip?

Wondering if one could slightly modify an aftermarket k-7 grip to extend the size of the k-r? I have very large hands and the k-x/k-r or k7/k5 is simply too small for my hands.

I don't think so. Some have suggested that there might be the possibility of an after market grip down the road specifically for the kr. I don't know if there is the internal capability for connections that would at least allow a shutter release. I think there was an aftermarket grip available for the K100.

One of the few bummers of the k-r is no batter grip. I can live with out, but I would love one.

I agree. I would have upgraded my K-x to a K-r already if there was a battery grip. Now I'm trying to decide if it's worth the extra money to go to a K-5, but I can't see spending an extra $600, plus the grip, for it.
