    Hey all, I have an EM10II and I have recently picked up the 30mm F3.5 lens. I have been impressed with this little lens except for one thing. In order to get the full macro experience I need to be so close the the subject that I tend to block out some light. I saw that olympus makes the Macro Arm Light but It is NOT compatible with the PEN-F, OM-D E-M10, OM-D E-M10 Mark II, OM-D E-M5 Mark II and OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

    Is there anything else out there like it that would work on the EM10II? Something to add some light for macro shots. At this point I can't afford the near $500 for the macro flash set stf-8.

    You can do cheap light direction modifiers and use nearly any flash, some ideas on this link
