Has anyone purchased this flash, and or what are anyone's thoughts it has a good review. I was considering a pair for macro or close up work with the em1 or em5 Mk2 with brackets
Kind regards mike

A thread of mine...http://www.mu-43.com/threads/77694/

It does not appear to have variably flash duration.

Thanks Dave, your link was interesting. I was considering mounting two as such, much like the canon MT24 and wanted as light as possible outfit for handheld outdoor critters using the emi flash/ em5mk2 flash as commander? Thus giving me a variation on lighting as needed. The Mieke has a reasonable review?
Kind regards mike
