    I'm going to look at an used Olympus FL-36R tomorrow. I planning to use it on my Panasonic GX1. Will I have any limitations because I but an Olympus flash on a Panasonic camera?

    Is there any difference between Panasonic FL360L and Olympus FL-36R? (Someone said that FL360L is manufactured by Olympus, is that true?)

    The only limitation I can think of is that you can't use it off camera.

    Panasonic's native flashes are basically clones of the Olympus ones, so I wouldn't be surprised if they are Olympus OEM. Only the latest bodies from Panasonic support the RC system though (I don't think the GX1 does), so you'll have to use it without RC capability.
