Limited Edition GR [Camera Porn]

Pentax Ricoh has spiced up my GR with some limited edition accessories- quite a pleasant surprise! It definitely looks the part IMO.

The red ring around the lens is an accessory?

Yeah, it replaces the black one that the camera comes with. There is no model # indicated on the box, it just says "original red ring".

There is a special version of the GR, that include that red ring, red strap, 21mm converter lens, and battery charger + extra battery. Check out Pentax Taiwan FB page.
Don't know the whole deal. I think forum member Frank (from Singapore) getting this set. I think they only sell this package in Asia, some kind of promotion or special edition, not sure.

Looks cool, but then you'll be less of a street ninja.

There was a blue one for the GRD III. The packaging says not for general sale:



Maybe left over from the limited edition Stussy, which had blue bits all over as well as a custom font:

Did you order it at B&H? FWIW, they have already gotten a shipment but it sold out, and they are waiting for more. I thought for a moment that the GR hadn't hit the shelves yet, but that's not the case

I did ordered it at B&H ... I called to ask when it will be in stock , and the guy told me that they are not sure but as soon as they get them they are all gone so it is better to pre order . (could be a marketing trick but I do believe that they are getting them in limited numbers )
so I said ok first time that I am doing it , usually I wait until a camera is is way in the market and the prices are down . but since this camera is everything I ever wanted in a camera I could not resist
