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

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

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.
