You really don't get it.

Serious;y though its quite ridiculous to say Olympus ttl system under exposes by the degree that you are claiming.

It bloody well does underexpose to that degree, can't you believe the facts when they are presented from so many folks?

It's just that I fail to believe you who admit to using a false name and a false country of origin. Let the jury decide.

Each and every system will vary by a few 10ths of a stop and that's about it.

I tried E-300, E-PL1, E-PL5, E-P3 and variously pop-up flashes, FL-LM1, FL-300R, FL-36R and FL-50 in various combinations and ALL underexposed the TTL flash.

It usually needed plus 1.7 flash comp to get a "normal" histogram, but better was plus 1.3 for better looking flash shots. Same goes for direct flash or bounced flash.

For fill flash work then usually negative flash comp is needed, but I was never talking about that, only about using flash to illuminate a subject or room and not relying on any ambient light.

If you are getting a correctly exposed flash shot with Olympus TTL then you must have the only Olympus camera in the world that is doing that - it must be faulty.
