The steady trickle of news about the Olympus OM-D carries on unabated, as PhotoRumors has uncovered another photo of the camera surrounded by a range of accessories. The team over at 43 Rumors has taken the magnifying glass to it and spotted a couple of lenses that we haven't seen before now — a pair of 75mm f/1.8 and 60mm f/2.8 macro lenses, both bearing the Micro Four Thirds mount, meaning that they'll be just as at home on your PEN or Lumix G when they launch. The photo also confirms the existence of the OM-D's battery grip, as we spotted in the leak of pictures earlier this week.

PhotoRumors also lists some expected specifications for the camera, though we're not quite sure of their provenance. It's suggesting that the finished product will have a 16-megapixel sensor, with 5-axis in-body image stabilization, an ISO range of 200-25,600, burst shooting of four frames per second, shutter speeds between 60 and 1/4000th of a second, and a 1.44-megapixel electronic viewfinder along with a 3-inch OLED touchscreen. All of this looks set to be packed into a body 122mm x 89mm x 43mm (4.8 x 3.5 x 1.7 inches), weighing 369 grams (about 0.8 pounds). 43 Rumors has also suggested a possible price of €1100 (around $1200) — and that the camera could launch this Wednesday, as reported in earlier leaks.
