I also have the macro light. If you can get it at a good price and are shooting a lot of macro shots, it can help with adjusting the light on your subject. It is easier to use when the camera is on a tripod, because then you can adjust each arm accordingly. There are other lights that perform in a similar manner, but I got mine on a good sale from Olympus. Also note, if you are expecting a lot of light output, look elsewhere. This is mostly a flexible fill light that can eliminate shadows.
