Does the V6 support M43 and mirrorless cameras (Olympus / Panasonic)?
Hi superod, currently the V6 does not support TTL flash systems other
than Canon, Nikon and Pentax - that is, for remote power control. So
your Metz unit is running on Olympus / Panasonic TTL system, so the V6
cannot controls its power.
If you have a Olympus / Panasonic
camera, you may however mount the Metz on the V6 Transmitter unit and it
will support TTL pass through. You'll have to stick to the same
system, so in case you are wondering about your Fuji X-E1, it won't do
TTL pass through across different systems.
Last but not least, TTL functions are not available even if you have a flash that runs on Canon, Nikon and Pentax TTL because all that the V6 Receiver does is talking to the flash in terms of how long each flash is fired in producing a specific power output. So the V6 does not enable any TTL function of the flash.

For those of you who were eyeing these potentially awesome flash triggers, they do not as of currently work particularly well with the E-M1.
TTL pass-through does not work with the FL-600R or the Metz 58 AF-2 (for Olympus/Pana)
Flash profiling also is not available for these two flashes. I'm pretty sure if I stuck 2 Nikon sb-700 it would probably work (currently untested); however, what's the point if the ttl pass through is non-functional?
Additionally, attempting to trigger these 2 flashes wirelessly through the triggers does not work. Manual power adjustment is also non-functional. Flashes without profile or the inability to create a profile are incompatible with the system.
If any other owners have had better success, I'd be very much interested to hear from you, but from my own experience they do not work.
Damn shame. These would have been otherwise a fantastic wireless flash solution. Great ergonomics, simple menu system and a great deal of potential for use with older flashes.
