Excerpt: I bought it since I lost the original stand for my Canon speedlite 270. It fits perfect. I was told by the chatting costumer service that it will work. Olympus itself should have on their specs that is compatible.
Summary: Considering the automatic functions of this flash with the E-3, the price was well worth it, purchased used at KEH. When shooting weddings, this flash produced good lighting along with ambient light. I added a LumiQuest bounce adapter.
Pros: Reliable, quick recharge (faster than most flash units I've used), ease of use, and integration with the E-series cameras.
Cons: The NiMH batteries have a tendency to drain faster and I have to be several battery sets for any major assignment such as a wedding shoot., A direct battery pack, allowing for extended usage and not have to rely upon the Olympus battery pack/bracket.

Summary: This flash is the best. It's an Olympus flash, but it is compatible with the Panasonic FZ50 and several other Panasonic cameras. The range on this flash is incredible.

Pros: Very high power, illuminates even darkest scenes very well. 100% compatible with the Panasonic FZ50's TTL metering system. Much less expensive than other brands of flashes for the FZ50.
Cons: Will drain batteries during periods of extended nonuse (several months) - not really a big issue but thought I should mention it.
Summary: Decent flash, but overpriced compared to Nikon's SB-800. Since the FL-50 is the only flash that will give you high speed shutter sync with an E-1, you really don't have much of a choice. That said, it performs quite well. Plenty of power for bounce and outdoor fill.
Pros: More power and faster refresh times than your only alternative, the FL-36
Cons: Expensive relative to N and C, Build quality lacking for price
Excerpt: If, like me, you have an Olympus DSLR and are enjoying its flexibility and quality, you may well be considering a flash unit. At first glance, the cost of the two available Olympus units is a little off putting. In particular, I asked myself "how will this improve my photography?
Summary: Aunque existen diversos modelos de camaras digitales en el mercado(desde marcas como casio, hasta las mas "tapa amarilla") la calidad de fotografia se ve afectada en los llamados claro-oscuros, sitios con poca luminosidad.
