I'm also thinking to get fl600 for travelling.

I have FL50r and found it's too big to carry or to be mounted on top of the camera. So far, I only have used it as a remote flash (holding it with left hand) and the kit OMD mini-flash as the trigger.

Note, FL50r is not as powerful as Canon or Nikon's top range (580EX or SB900). I'm pretty disappointed with FL50r performance to be honest. For that price & weight, i expect it to be at least on par. In the last event I had, i found it just barely enough but it i took ages to recycle. At the end, i gave up and used Nikon D7000+SB900 instead.

FL600r is only half as powerful as FL50r. So, for serious event, I will avoid FL600r.
