Got this email from Richard Franiec today.. Coming soon, in December, 36.95
I had asked him last month when he would have one available.
New Sigma DP1/DP2 Merrill Custom Grip.
Driven by popular demand this grip is designed specifically for new Sigma
Merrill DP compacts to address the handling concerns indicated by users.
Thanks to the grip, using and carrying DPMerrill cameras comfortably and
with enhanced safety is now possible.
The finger grove of the grip was designed and tested to fit the hand in most
natural way enhancing operation of control camera functions on the fly.
Covering shining silver logo by necessary extension of grip makes
DPMerrills stealthy; the street shooter preferable look of their tools. Yet
the grip shows subdued, unmistakable sign of origin of the camera.
CG-DPMerrill grip does not compromise compactness of the camera. It sits
well below the retracted lens adding negligible weight of around an ounce
The grip is individually precision 3D CNC machined from high grade aluminum
alloy, glass bead blasted and black anodized with nickel seal for
CG-DPM grip attaches to the camera by 3M VHB clear transfer tape known for
ultimate bonding power in wide range of environments. Once mounted, the grip
will become integral part of the cam, yet it can be removed without the
damage to the camera or grip finish when the need arises.
Custom DP1/2Merrill grip will be available in first part of December 2012
for $36.95 plus shipping.
