I just ask because my last M43 camera was a Panasonic Lumix G1 and I have the 14-42 and 45-200 lenses for that as well as the FL360E flash. I know that the lenses will fit but is the flash compatible as well or does the M43 standard only go as far as the lens mount?

I don't know for certain, but the reverse is true - the Olympus FL-36 worked on my Panasonic GH2. I suspect they are basically the same flash gun, but no doubt someone who's into flash will correct me.

Yes, the Panasonic flash will work on Olympus bodies (Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds) and with TTL metering, but Panasonic flash units can't be remote controlled.
