Re: FL-40 flash

Chris,

I had one of thes for a while. It is an older model, pre-dating even the E1. (E-10/20 and C-8080 use I think). However it will work with 4/3 cameras.

It doesn't have quite the range as an FL-50, as the name suggests, but it is better than the FL-36, not just because of it's range, but that it takes 4 batteries, and is therefore capable of re-cycling faster/having more battery life.

It is a similar size to the FL-50.

Mine seemed quite sturdy - being an older body possibly built with a bit more robustness than your modern flashes - possibly subjective.

HTH,
