    I have an Oly PL5 which I very much like. I would like to get a more powerful flash unit that the tiny one that came with the camera. What would people recommend? I would like to hear from people who have used flash for fill-light outdoors as well as to lighten things up indoors.

    The FL-600R should suit you fine. :)

    Yep, the FL600R is the best choice. Poweful enough and quick recycling.

    And, just to chime in, the FL-600R is currently on sale at Amazon for $75 (US) off of list.

    You can use the "support mu-43" link above in the tool bar to go to Amazon, then search on FL-600 R.

    Amin will get a small stipend from Amazon to support the site :thumbup:.

    Rats! For another $15.95 I could've gotten the accessory pack! :mad:

    Ah, well. Not worth reordering and returning the flash that's due here tomorrow.

    Of course...TWO flashes would be nice...
