May I suggest just picking up a T32, if you don't already have one,
and then possibly add a Stofen Omnibounce. The T32's auto modes work
great with my E-1 and C8080. The flash is high enough to thwart
red-eye and low enough to allow very decent verticals.
I will have all of my lens "needs" satisfied before plowing money into
a dedicated flash for these cameras when the old ones work so well.
