The first real-life photos of the Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II zoom lens and the ECG-2 camera grip have been leaked on the web ahead of the official announcement.
Olympus is preparing to introduce a bunch of products just in time for the CP+ 2015 event taking place in mid-February. The first photos of the OM-D E-M5II mirrorless camera and its accessories have already been leaked.
Additionally, an image of the refreshed 14-150mm f/4-5.6 lens has showed up on the web, too. Now it is time for the first real-life Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II zoom lens photos to be revealed and to include some interesting details.
First real-life Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II zoom lens photos leaked on the web
Beside the OM-D E-M5 II, Olympus will announce a new version of the 14-150mm f/4-5.6 optic. The new model will come with a brand new external design, making the lens more beautiful as well as splash proof.
It is unclear whether or not the internal design has suffered any changes that would improve the image quality, but on the outside it looks really different.
As stated above, the lens is splash proof, as it can be clearly seen on a marking. This means that it will be perfect for photographers with an E-M1 Micro Four Thirds camera who do not want to rush home as soon as the rain or dust starts to become a problem.
The size of the new model appears to be very similar to the dimensions of the older model. However, we will have to wait for the company to confirm this information.
There are several Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II zoom lens photos and you can analyze them in order to find any other details that we may have missed.
ECG-2 camera grip to be released for the upcoming Olympus E-M5II
Olympus is expected to reveal a battery grip, a vertical grip, an external flash, and a waterproof case for the E-M5II. However, there is more accessory coming for the mirrorless camera: the ECG-2 grip.
The first model, called ECG-1, is a camera grip designed for the E-M10, which comes with an ergonomic design that increases stability and hand grip.
In the photos, we can see the ECG-2 mounted on the E-M10, but it seems too big for this shooter. This means that it is intended for a model with a larger body and the E-M5II fits this description.
The official announcement should take place in the near future, so stick with us to find out as soon as it happens.
