Hey Ollie,

I have the FM500 for my Z1 and I bought the first ebay link you pointed out some time ago for my little HC1 as I wanted to use a few little tiffin filters.

I wouldn't consider using the smaller matte box on the Z1, and personally I am very happy with the FM500.

I guess it comes down to what filters you want to use, 4x4 are much more expensive than the little tiffin ones!

Best of luck making the right decision for you.

Dan
