    SOLD OUT - 2015-APR-15

    This price is better than the used prices I see on ebay.

    It's one of the few third party flashes that supports Wireless TTL Slave functionality.

    I guess BH Photo & Video got a bunch of the remaining stock to clear out since the 50 AF-1 has been replaced by the 52 AF-1 ($288). From what I can see from scanning the specs, the only difference is the addition of a touchscreen interface and a slightly larger rating (that probably doesn't mean much in real life.)

    Looks like they are gone. Too bad. I never see deals on m43 flashes.

    It still shows as "in stock" and I can still add it to my cart, but didn't try to check out with it... (don't need another one.) Did you try to check out with one and fail?

    I'd start a new thread over in lighting and/or head over to the strobist blog where they use manual flashes.

    It might be a decent deal, but it is like a manual focus lens or an old 4/3 body. It doesn't have all of the capabilities of the other products, and that makes it less suitable for some shots.

    So this flash work like the olympus FL-36R which allows remote controlled from the camera with TTL function?

    That's right. I have two of this 50Af-1 flashes. Very easy to use, just remember to check and update the flash firmware first.
