All I want is a small but fast flashgun that will sit on top of my M50 ...

Have you considered the EL-100? It looks like Canon's mirrorless speedlight option, similar to a Godox TT350 / Metz M400 / Nissin i40 model. Since you have the Odin triggers for radio control, you probably won't care that it's notRT. You don't save much on pricetag vs. a 430EX III-RT and it's less powerful (2xAA), but it's 190g (without batteries) vs. the 430EX III-RT being 295g (without batteries, of which it uses 4).

Thank you for the feedback. Yes I did consider the EL-100 (despite it being quite expensive for what it is) but I am worried that both the output (21m is about half of 430EX) and the recycling times will not cope with the situations that I plan to use it (wedding parties - fast reaction kind of situations). Weight wise I agree it sounds perfect but  want to push it beyond the occasional family photo situation...

Assuming 30g per AA battery, that's 250g vs. 415g with the batteries loaded. And on a small mirrorless camera, lighter means a lot.

The Odin system is great, it's just too bad that only the Mk II Odins can be upgraded for the new Odin-Z system. Still they have the better UI and build quality over Godox,. All they need, really is an AD200 analog to go with the Indras.

Yes (re AD200Pro) I was thinking the same, but Odin is solid and has served me well in paid-for work - totally reliable and great range..

The hunt continues... need to sell my 580EXII first!
