I guess they discontinued this flash unit about a month ago, no notification of any kind! Since the demise announcement of 4/3s I've been disillusioned with Olympus. About the time I start to set that aside, they keep finding ways to keep me in doubt. In August I decided I needed another flash unit but I opted for a Metz Mecablitz 64 AF-1, as it had the same or little more output, a built in synch connection, and an option for high voltage battery and cables are available! The little things are adding up quickly Olympus!
