    Other than the Olympus FL-300r what small flashes to people recommend for the new OM cameras?

    I am reluctant to buy another FL-300r as the previous one failed me after little use and just out of warranty. I have never had a flash fail me before.

    I (occasionally) use a Nissin i40 - small, yet with a nice feature set and quite capable.

    I picked up an MK320 recently to pair with my OMD and have been pleased so far.

    Pros:
    Build quality is good and the included diffuser is a nice touch. USB charging is convenient and the display shows progress as the batteries fill up. Half the size of a normal flash while still retaining bounce capability for both horizontal and vertical compositions.

    Cons:
    Power is lackluster, but expected for the size and price - it won't replace a full size speedlight. No zoom head means less reach in many cases.
