    Any recommendations for an off camera flash and cord for macro work, must retain full TTL.

    I'll be using the 45-200 with a Raynox 150.

    Not fussed whether its Panasonic, Olympus or aftermaket.

    I've heard that the Metz 50 AF-1 gives pretty good results.

    Thanks in advance.

    Olympus FL-CB05 is what you need.

    That's just cruel!!! Yours looks about the same as mine so I'm sure it'll work just as well.

    You can use any Canon TTL cord with any Four-Thirds compatible flash. That should open up your choices a bit. ;)
