Re: I'm getting this underexposure

On my E-M5 with the Oly FL300R. Thought it was just an underpowered flash, so having just got my E-M1 bought a Metz 44. It is just the same on both cameras - around 1 to 1.5 stops underexposed.

NOT what I expected, but I'm not a big flash user and I will dial in some exposure compensation.

Have you checked the user manual, with the Olympus units there is a setting for close ups, and if you have set this by mistake this can result in under exposure, its a common mistake, in fact a lot of people don`t even realise what they have set.
