    I am quite confused... the manual of the PL5 says regarding fastest sync speeds for external flashes: 1/200

    But with my Metz 24AF1 attached it's only 1/160 (even my old PL2 reaches 1/180).

    My PL5's firmware is the latest (v1.2).

    Any thought's on this?

    I don't know EPL2 but on the EPL5, fastest sync speed with third party flash is up to 1/160s, with the kit flash it goes up to 1/250s

    Strange, I recently testet a PM2 (almost the 'same' as PL5) with my Metz 24AF1... and I am pretty sure the max sync speed was 1/200...
