(FT5) Image of the 60mm FR-2 adapter for RF-11 flash.

Amazon just leaked a pdf file that includes the image of the new 60mm FR-2 adapter for RF-11 flash: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/B1YEzf4soyS.pdf. Thanks to the anonymous source for sending this. I hope you can find the image of the 15mm f/8.0 lens too :)

    Great design. Love it. Could be world’s first ring flash (adapter) that looks good.

  • Looks to me pretty much like the FR-1 adapter for the 4/3 50mm F2.0
    Problem will be that the flash unit is probably bigger than OMD and 60mm F2.8 together and not weathersealed.

    m4/3 would need some smaller unit and weathersealed.

    BTW Olympus has AFAIK the only RINGflash as all the others are rather twinflashes with a ring diffuser

  • Maybe Olympus will release a wireless ring flash (like the Metz 15 MS-1)

    Now we need to know the price. The ring flash for Zuiko 50mm f/2 macro is $500 or something really expensive. I think this will attach to the bayonet mount in front of the lens, and the ring flash itself will attach to it. I hope with this adapter, the original ring flash for 4/3 can be shared.

  • The Metz 15 MS-1 is not a ringflash – it is a twinflash with a ring diffuser. If you need to document for medical or forensic work, there is only ine RINGflash – the Olympus RF-11.
    For versatility in lightning a TWINflash is actually more suited and Nikon has fantastic wireless system with the SB-R200. I actually considered buying Nikon just because of these flashes. The SN-R200 are little leightweight remote controlled flash units you can group as a twins or ring around the lens or anywhere else. I have never used them but they must be perfect for macro and product shooting. Olympus should pick up the idea but weatherseal them: With the new FL600 they already have a weathersealed control unit.
