    Just curious if there is a compatible Flash for the EPL1. Yeah my FL-50R broke....Yeah I dropped it. But I dont have the funds to replace it and looking to see if there is a compatible cheaper version till I can replace it.

    I'd look at Metz, they are generally less expensive, and appear to allow even wireless TTL. (I say appear because I have no firsthand experience with them)

    The Metz mecablitz 50 AF-1 TTL Shoemount Flash on BH Photo got decent reviews.

    the 44 AF-1 does so perfectly... and it is fun too! Not quite as much power/control as some other flashes, but I've found it to be more than enough thus far.

    I have a 58 AF-2 and a 48 AF-1, and the power difference is quite a bit. The 44 and 48 are not that far apart. And unless you are bouncing off a 30ft ceiling. You will most likely not need a metz 58.
