FL-36R or FL-50R for E-620 / EM-1
3 months ago

I have a FL-36 but the lock ring is damaged (silly Olympus should have used a metal lock ring). It's still usable but it wobbles quite a bit when attached, for obvious reason.

Now I am thinking about getting the FL-36R or the FL-50R, as the price for used ones are quite attractive. The question is, which one to buy? The FL-50R is apparently "better" but it's almost 2x the price and certainly bigger (never had one so not sure how much bigger). This is (most likely) for very light indoor bouncing flash usage.

For one thing, I do not like FL-36's recharge time - too long after a couple dozens of shots, even on pair of fresh batteries.
