    Does anyone use the FL 300 ? I know there was a recall on this, but I believe the problem was corrected. Good flash, or other recommendations.
    Thanks.

    I'm using it with E-PM1 and E-PL2. Great flash. The recall was only for certain serial numbers, look at Olympus website for more info on that.
    The flash is very compact and light (surpringly powerful), can bounce and tilt down for storage/macro. The exposure is spot-on. Wireless capability is very useful in many situations although I'm still not sure how it differs from slave mode.

    I have the flash and it works great. Again, it's the same compromise: power vs size. For bouncing, it might be a bit weak for larger rooms. Other than that, I can't complain. And the RC remote mode is pretty neat.
