    Canon Speedlite 270EXII on OM-D — is it even possible? It comes free so I would use it. Main or slave.

    I've managed to get a 580EX working in manual on my GX1, but had no luck with the 270EXII

    I wouldn't do it, because the extra pins line up & are not the same controls as Olympus. If you want to use a Canon extension cable for an Olympus flash then that is absolutely fine, but not the canon flash (unless you can isolate the extra pins & use it in Auto or Manual mode).

    Awesome! So, I imagine most wireless transmitters like the Yongnuo RF-602 work just fine for triggering in manual?
