Re: Flash recommendation for Macro? (With Oly 60mm)

You also may consider the Metz Mecablitz 15 MS-1 Digital Ring Macro Flash. It is not really a ring flash but has 2 lights in a circular reflector.  It can do TTL in olympus RC mode.  The lights can be brightened on one side and decreased on the other and vice versa. It is attached via a screw in adaptor at the end of your lens.  You will need to purchase a step down ring as the various adaptors do not fit the 60.  I like it because it frees up your hands when shooting hand held. It is not as versatile as the FL600R it has limited use as a general flash, but for macro it is worth your consideration.
