    Hi All,

    Anyone know if the oly FL40 will work with GX1.

    I used the FL40 with oly 5050 camera.

    Cheers,
    Adnold

    It should work without TTL metering, but I don't have one to try.

    I believe that flash was still compatible on the E-1, but every Four-Thirds model after that updated the TTL firmware. It should still work as a manual flash though.

    Metz 44/48. Cheaper than the FL36R but since you have a Panasonic body the 'R' doesn't get you anything extra.
