Looking for a hot shoe flash for an EP2
Jul 9, 2012

Hi Folks,

Subject line says it all. I'm looking for something that's a cut above the decidedly meh Olympus PEN-specific flashes. Since chroma noise starts noticeably creeping in around ISO 1600 on the 12MP PEN MFT sensors, I'm looking for something to assist with indoor situations. The Metz Mecablitz 50 AF-1 caught my eye more than a few times, with it's tilty-swivelly niceness (and it's under $200 used).

Worth mentioning, I am actively seeking a DSLR as a near-future purchase. The EP2 is being used for practice at the time being, and it will likely become a secondary camera once I've acquired a DSLR. My proverbial financial expense range is effectively, "Not cheap because I want it to last, but not expensive because that eats into the purchase of other items."

Thanks for your suggestions and your time.
