Another downside for me is that the new Olympus RF system doesn't appear to be able to control the zoom position of the remote flashes. This is something I covert in other systems and miss with my current set up.

Yeah, unfortunately no, it does not. One would think that would be possible, and possibly will at some point via an update. Whether mounted directly on the body or being shot remotely off the receiver, the flash I am using is typically either being shot into an umbrella or bounced off a modifier like the Demb flash bounce attachment so I'm not usually too worried about this since the light is being softened/scattered further.

Anything Olympus did, could have done or is doing, is better than the silly RC/line-of-sight system they've stubbornly kept all these years.
