Looks nice. But, I thought that the whole point of GR was its discreetness. The black version is more non-chalant if you ask me. With FF coming out, I still think more about GR II. Oh well.

Press release:

DENVER, Colo., February 15, 2016 – Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the RICOH GR II Silver Edition to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the founding of Ricoh Company, Ltd. This exclusive package consists of a silver-color edition of the GR II premium digital compact camera (launched in July 2015) and an exclusively designed camera case. It will be marketed in a limited quantity of 3,200 units worldwide.

The GR II is the smallest premium digital compact camera, offering digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) image quality with Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality. The GR 18.3mm F2.8 lens is a compact, high-performance GR lens with a focal length of 28mm (in the 35 mm format). It also boasts a large, APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with approximately 16.2 effective megapixels.

Features of the GR II Silver Edition include:

Stylish silver camera body: The camera body has a high-grade, silver-color leather- tone finish, featuring an elegant, grained texture.

Distinctive features compared to the standard GR II: The Silver Edition’s shutter release button and the ring cap have been finished in silver identical to that of the camera body. Additionally, the lens descriptions are engraved on the front ring using a diamond- cutting process and the GR logo’s color on the camera’s front panel has been changed to white. Even the product box has been specially designed for this

Termination screen: When the camera’s power is turned off, the camera displays an original termination screen, which has a solid, high-grade design expressing the GR II’s product concept.

Genuine leather camera case: The package includes a black, genuine-leather camera case exclusively designed for the GR II camera body. It provides features useful for quick- action snapshot photography, including a belt loop on the back, and a top cover that opens fully for easy removal of the camera body.

I agree, though I'm sure my opinion would be considered biased since I already have a black GR II, but I truly don't care for the looks of the silver one. One of my favorite things about this camera is that when you bring it out, it gets absolutely no attention. Everyone just assumes that it's some cheapo pocket camera and wonders why you don't just use your phone. It's like having a Toyota Camry with a Corvette V-8 under the hood. The ultimate "sleeper."
