Just bought an Olympus E-520 camera and wonder if a Olympus FL40 flash can work with it in any way?

So when you say "Not as well as..." you are saying that I can use the FL-40 flash together with the Olympus E-series like my E-520 camera?

I'm concerned that either it will not work at all or the electronics inside the camera will be damaged.
