    Hi all

    Quick question if I may

    Are the flashguns made for the Olympus OM Camera OM2n etc like the T20 & T32 compatible with Olympus M4/3 Cameras, TTL metering etc or do the m4/43 cameras use a totally different system

    Thanks

    Paul

    Not at all compatible. In fact the Olympus FL-40 that was made for the E-1 isn't compatible either. Everything made after is.

    Yeah, that was pretty confusing... Around the time of the E-1 the price for the FL-40 suddenly dropped to $100 before vanishing forever. More than a few disappointed people bought them for their later E-Series cameras only to find they would only work in Manual and Thyristor-Auto... No TTL...I think mine worked with a C-4040 - it had a potato-masher handle accessory too!

    The FL-40 also worked with my C-700UZ, but I wanted to limit the response to interchangeable lens/E-Series cameras.
