The Metz flashes don't work as they should in remote mode on the E-M5 although they work on the earlier pens. There have been frequent posts on this forum about the issue.

I haven't yet seen a post about this issue on the E-PL5. It may be it works perfectly but I would wait for confirmation before buying a Metz especially if you are interested in manual remote flash control.

This might also be a firmware-issue on the Metz' side. There are like 5 FW generations for the Olympus version...
