    Hi! Was wondering which external flash are you using - plus some comments (bad or good) please. TIA!
    p.s. I have my eyes set on that 'big' Metz 48 AF-1 :p

    I have vivitar 383. Its cheap and powerful, tilt and swivel head, bounce card and difuser, works TTL with G1. The only problem is that AF assist lamp does not work with G1.

    I use an Olympus FL-36 (now FL-36R) flash with my G1. When mounted to the G1 it knows it's connected to a Four-Thirds camera and adjusts the flash angle to match the focal length setting of the zoom lens. When I put my ear to the flash I can hear the motor whirring as I zoom in or out. The flash head can be adjusted to provide bounce flash to provide more natural looking light and avoid red-eye. I bought this flash several years ago to go with my Olympus SP-350.
