I have been looking for a relatively cheapish flashgun for my e420. but there aren't many olympus flashes. Are they any good, cheapish ones that are compatible with e420?

Metz and Nissin do Oly compatible flashes there is a selection here (http://www.ffordes.com/category/Flash_Equipment/Flashguns/For_Olympus_E_Digital), but you may want to research other sites too

Because I tend to use manual control of flash, I use any old guns from eBay and trigger them with slave cells or radio triggers

If you want one for on camera flash, get an old Olympus T-32

What are you intending to use it for?

Just be careful not to use an old gun with a high trigger voltage, as it could easily damage the electronics in a modern camera.

Most modern flashguns have trigger voltages in single figures (easily measured with a multimeter), whilst some older guns have trigger voltages of 300 Volts or more!
