Re: Oly ST-8 Macro Flash for EM5iii: Worked it Out

Dale--If you mount your 5iii on a tripod for macro, be very gentle with any manual focus ring movements.  The tripod mount is a weak point of the camera.  I bought an L-bracket grip and tie-wrapped it to the right side strap eyelet to eliminate any flex of the tripod socket area.  Looks terrible, works perfectly.
