Flash choices for use w/ OM-D
Oct 7, 2012

I'm looking at starting to build out a decent flash system to use with my OM-D, and I don't really understand the options out there.

What I see quite clearly is that there is a huge price difference between, say, a Yongnuo YN-560, and the Olympus FL-600R. So I could get 4-5 of the Yongnuos for the cost of one FL-600R. I get the sense that the Oly would give me some control/metering options the Yongnuo wouldn't, but as Uncle Joe Stalin once said, "quantity has a quality all its own."

Anyway, can anyone help me understand what the choices are, and what benefit I might gain from each? I'm not opposed to spending more if it's buying into a system that will have more long-term value as I add to it.
