GR go the PENTAX way....

It appears that the merger of PENTAX-Ricoh, beside getting the TAv from PENTAX, Ricoh also do the customization thingy.

???????????&?????PENTAX RICOH IMAGING

Now you can "accessorize" the shutter button, top plate, grip, and the front ring...

I prefer a color grip option than the wooden grip, the light blue color that the new K-01 got is pretty cool! I hope customer can change this by themselves and not have to special order it (can't read Jap, so not sure how it is done).

It says for a limited time only. Looks cool though.

Actually, it is more like "while the supplies last."

Each parts are limited to 50...

Someone posted photos after the exchange here I like the stealth look of default GR, but silver top and silver ring looks nice, too.
