Limited Edition Ricoh GR III, 2020.
4

As I understand it, a year or so into the production cycle Ricoh announces a Limited Edition GR. One Limited Edition version per model, and often with accessories packaged.

I'd expect the Limited Edition Ricoh GR III to release in 2020, so your suggestions, predictions and deductions may even influence Ricoh.

2006 Azure & Gold, clouds and zephyrs. Illustrated by Katsuya Terada: https://www.dpreview.com/articles/5283616078/ricohgr

2009 Black with International Klein Blue accenting & Stussy (streetwear) insignia: https://www.freshnessmag.com/2009/12/21/ricoh-x-stussy-gr-digital-iii/

2013 Jade & Wood, hammer-finish. Taco's Take: http://www.bigheadtaco.com/2014/01/upcoming-review-ricoh-gr-ltd-edition.html

2016 Silver & Leather, blast-finish with leather-tone grip: https://youtu.be/GM75w32rYyQ

The GR II also had a Limited Edition attache set: https://leblogphoto.net/2015/10/02/ricoh-devoile-le-kit-gr-ii-premium-limited-edition/

What would you expect to see?

What would you like to see?

Are there designers/artists, colour-schemes, textures/materials, brands/themes or public figures you'd like to see involved? Daido Moriyama? Katsuhiro Otomo? Yayoi Kusama? City of Vancouver/Chicago/Munich/Sofia/Wimbledon? Yellow Vest Movement? Roger Balen, Kentridge, Michael Joo? Big Head Taco, Eric, Camera-Girl, Kasey...? Aperture Foundation? Magnum Inc.? The Doomsday Clock? Lykke Li, Die Antwoord, London Grammar, Miles Davis, 'Thriller'? Coca-Cola, IKEA, YSL, Leica...? Al Jazeera, Rolling Stone, Vogue Italia, Geo? PewdiePie, Jordan Peterson, Ocasio-Cortez, Trump, Chomsky, Kanye? Doctor Who, Tarzan? Peace Corps, UNICEF, NASA? Gatchaman, Kaneda, Astro, Dredd? Mifune, Liz Taylor? Hunter S. Thompson? Alfred Hitchcock, Scorsese? Luke Skywalker's lightsaber? Aquaman, Alita, The Lion King?

What would they not do, yet you think would be cool if they did?

I think that a red Limited Edition based upon Kaneda's bike (designed by Katsuhiro Otomo) would be striking and cool

If you won't turn to the Dark Side of the Force... then who will?
