    Anyone have FL600R & EM5?
    I'm thinking of purchasing the FL600R flash for the EM5.

    If anyone has this combo, would you mind posting a photo of the EM5 with flash attached? I'm just trying to "picture" in my mind how big it will be on the EM5.

    After reading quite a few reviews, it seems to work the best on the EM5. And it is $200 cheaper than the FL50R, although the latter is stronger with other features that I don't need. It is also quite a bit lighter weight - which works for me!

    Thanks!

    Liz the FL-50R could be over kill in your case. I use to use the FL-50R with my night flash gels and I could light up a city block it seemed. I think the FL0600R would be a good option even though I haven't used it.

    Thanks Greg.....the FL600R is the one I'm considering, and will most likely purchase. I haven't used the flash that the camera came with yet, but I will need something more than what it has to offer.

    At any rate, it includes TTL but only when on the camera. It has great reviews, and it is much lighter and the recycling is faster than the FL50R, plus the $200 savings. I believe you're right about the FL50 being overkill for my purposes.
