Flashes/Speedlights From Other Brands: Anyone Use them on X?
10 months ago

As we all know the X-system's weakness are dedicated flashes and accessories.  I read on a couple X-System blogs that photographers have used Nikon, Canon, and Olympus/Panasonic speedlights on X-System cameras, with full automatic functions such as TTL.  However, I am *very* skeptical about these claims, as these flashes are designed and made for their specific brands.

Has anyone on this forum been brave enough to try this out?  I have 4 flash units for Olympus/Leica/Panasonic, OEM and Metz, and would love to use them on my X-E1 but am not bold nor brave enough to do so.  Thanks!
