Is there a battery grip available for the K-50

On Amazon and Ebay there are plenty of battery grips for the K-7 but nothing for the K-50. I'm thinking that they are one of the same (the grip will fit both). Anyone know if that's the case?

The K-50 has no battery grip, it doesn't have the contacts on the body to accept one. The D-BG4 only fits the K-7, K-5 and K-5II.

There are a number of threads about DIY grips for the K-x, K-r, K-30. Some are made from scratch, some are modifications of cheap knock-offs or grips for other brands of cameras. So, a grip is possible for the K-50, but it may or may not have all the features you need from a grip.

Why not the K5IIs or the new K3 even?
