Any opinions on the new Olympus flash gear?

Kind of lost in the discussion of the EM1x is the release of the new Olympus radio-controlled flash gear ... the FL-700WR and the FC-WR remote commander.

I don't use a flash very often, but enough that I have few older FL-50 units lying around. I've been doing an overall updating of my kit, and one thought would be to replace the older units with the FL-700WR.

Any hands-on experience with this new gear?  It looks attractive, but is it any better than I would I could get with Godox or other vendor?
