    Hi all. I currently have the Metz 36, TTL flash for my E-M5. Works beautifully in many situations with my PL 25 as well as the Pana 12-35 which I've used. Here is a link to that flash: Metz mecablitz 36AF-5 Digital Flash for Olympus / MZ 36352OPL

    However, I am searching for "middle-sized" TTL flash. Something smaller than my Metz 36, but larger than the pee-wee flash which comes with the camera. Ideally, it would be exactly the size of the Fuji EF-20 (for those unfamiliar: Fujifilm EF20 Shoe Mount Flash for FUJIFILM Cameras 16144597 B&H )

    Anyone know if there is one like this made by Olympus / Panasonic / Third Party in this size? Thanks.

    Just by way of reference, below is an image taken with E-M5 + Pana 12-35 + Metz 36 (bounced+Stofen diffuser). I *know* that a mid0-size flash could replicate this, I just dont need to use my full-size Metz most of the time.

    (Original, Hi-res of this image is here: All sizes | E-M5, Pana 12-35/2.8 | Flickr - Yes, this photo was from my daughter's reaction to price of the 12-35/2.8 :biggrin: )

    The FL-300R is the flash your looking for. Works great, very compact and battery life is good.
