    I own either Panasonic and Olympus m4/3 bodies such as Ep2 - Epl2 and G3. I'm looking for a not too expensive flash and have found this one used at 60 euros:MEZT 36AF-4 OLYMPUS/PANASONIC.
    My question is: is there any difference between the Metz and the Oly FL36r?

    The Metz looks to be an extremely simple flash compared to the 36R. No manual mode. No auto mode. No wireless flash control. All controls must be made through the camera. It also looks like it doesn't have an auto zoom for the flash head.

    If all you want is TT
    Then it's fine but it won't allow you to play in the more creative manual modes. Have a look at th Yonguno (spelling???) flashes on eBay. Some godd value there.
