Smile FL-CB05 query

Hi again,
Is the FL-CB05 cable compatible with the Metz 48AF flashgun? If not, what cable can you recommend?
Thanks
Jude

Yes, it should be (assuming you mean the Olympus Four Thirds version of the Metz flash?) as it simply provides a mechanical wired extension. Several people here and elsewhere have also recommended buying cheaper third party Canon-fit extension leads as the hot shoe contact spacing is about the same the Olympus layout.
