A source sent me those images showing for the first time the Olympus 14-150mm F4-5.6 II lens and ECG-2 grip in “real life” images. He writes:
I somehow managed to get my hands on the unreleased 14-150mm F4-5.6 II and a “ECG-2” grip.I’ve attached a picture of the new 14-150 lens beside my 45mm F1.8, for comparison. I did a quick measurement of the lens height and it seems to be the same 83mm height from front element to base (where the lens meets mount, not the absolute rear. So it probably has the same design as the original, only cosmetic changes.
I’ve also tried the ECG-2 grip on my E-M10 + 75-300mm. It works, for it’s not a perfect fit. The grip is larger than the body. Definitely looks like a new accessory for the E-M5 mark II.
The good news is that the new Olympus 14-150mm F4-5.6 II lens is splash proof as you see from the lens mark on the firts of the following images:
One more picture of the new lens on my gm5, side by side with e-m10 + 75-300 + egg-2 grip.
