    This weekend past I picked up my trusty GRD III to take with me on a trip, but as I picked it up I noticed the lens ring cover was missing, I thought oh it must be in the bag but no. I have hunted high and low but to no luck. So I emailed Ricoh who haven't replied re a replacement. Now what I need to know is does the GRD I / II lens ring cover fit the III as I can get hold of them quite easily? Thanks Ash

    Now that sounds rather disturbing. I hope you get some helpful feedback here, smash and that Ricoh rsvp's asap!

    I'm not 100% sure about that but you can pm Lili. She's a GRD follower since the original.
    Don't sweat it tho' your in good company. I lost my X100 ring a week ago and truth be told, I don't miss it.

    I've just tried it for you and I'm afraid it doesn't. The GRDII one is slightly too small for the GRDIII

    No luck I am afraid. Tried Clifton cameras here in the UK, shame they dont sell them either but they do sell the gold ring GRD III and the black ring is left in the box.

    Good news and bad news. I did a bit of searching and through google japan found this website that sells some cool custom gear for Ricoh cameras. They have a ring, but bad news is it's about £38. They have a choice of 8 colours though, but you might need to brush up on your Japanese. I'm not sure what their delivery prices are. That's all I have found for now, but will keep an eye out for more. The link:

    This guy is selling a GRD3 on ebay with a missing front ring and says you can buy a new one from Ricoh Germany for €11 which is good news. Hopefully Ricoh will get back to you soon with that option. Good luck.
