I have ordered one of these, and I know at least a couple of you on here are using it. I'm wondering how effective it will be for wildlife, birds, insects, etc., within a 35 foot radius. I plan on using the 100-300mm, and the 12-50mm, on the E-M5. I'm especially interested in what Brian1208 has to say, as he recommended this flash to me a while ago. I have the manual, and I've been reading it off and on, and I have been using an Olympus FL36 for a couple years, so I'm not a complete beginner.

You will now have the advantage of being able to RC the flash, from the camera, even when it is not mounted on the camera. The extra power available will bring FP High Speed shutter use to be available at greater distance.

You may want to consider using a conical silvered tube to concentrate the light when using it with long lenses. DiY cardboard and Al foil ones work very well.

RC is not a lot of good out doors.
