AOC badge

Thought all 645Z had the Asahi Optical Company badge on the prism. Looking at numerous pictures of 645Z, I haven't seen one with a badge. Why does mine have it? Egads, is my Z a counterfeit?😉
Thanks,
barondla

There were AOCo stickers that were given out in Japan at various shows, events, Ricoh centers and possibly included in the box of gear for a limited period. I recall an unboxing video from one of the European countries and it looked like there was a sheet of sticker in the box.

It's one of those things that you had to be there at the right time and the right place to get.

Perhaps you saw a photo of fortunate person who had the sticker on their camera?

Oops! RED FACE. I thought this thread was about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

I was hoping someone might know a source for the stickers.

Here you, go a Quick snap with the Q and #01 lens. No time to look for the close up filter, heavily cropped.

Thanks,

Didn’t you get your camera second-hand? If so, you are the lucky owner of an AoC-stickered body. As I recall hose reverse rub-off stickers were passed out exclusively at events in Japan a couple years ago. I think I saw a photo of a sheet of several legacy logos and sizes to apply.

Yes, the Z came from a PentaxForums member. Believe he also acquired it 2nd hand. Cool, I'll try to be careful with it. Ricoh should work out a deal to sell more of these sticker sheets. Perhaps team up with @Adam here at the forums.

Thanks everyone for the info,
