OMD-5 With HLD-6 and Panasonic 12-35

I have the OMD-5 and the HLD 6 handgrip, a great combination.  I am considering adding the Panasonic 12-35 zoom but am concerned the increased lens diameter may not leave finger room when using the handgrip.  I use it with the Oly 14-150 with no problem but the 12-35 looks wider.

Does anyone know if the Panny 12-35 is compatible with the OMD 5 and handgrip in terms of finger grip room?

Thanks.

no problem for me

I have fairly large hands and long fingers but have no problem with the grip interfering with any lens but the Samyang 7.5mm fish, where I tend to get a finger in the picture.

It's compatible.

Fine for me, but I don't have huge fingers. With thick gloves on, it may be a problem, but I'm fine with leather and fleece gloves. It's a great combination.
