I also have one of the the 'longer' version for DSLR's (bought by mistake) & it is too long for the OM-D with 60mm macro lens as there is a 'mirrorless' version from JJC as well, although it may have been discontinued (not on the JJC site), but here are a couple more suppliers.

I have them both (now) as well as the MAL-1 Macro Arm Light. If you're thinking of using it on any longer focal length then the light power is just not enough to be effective (except of fixed objects using a tripod because of the slow shutter speed at ISO200).
