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.
