    I have a left over SB800 and off shoe cable from my old Nikon system pre mu4/3. I am wondering if there is any way to get it to work with the G5, on or off camera.

    If not, are there any mu4/3 that it would work with?

    You could use it with an isolating block to stop any TTL connecting as they are incompatible but the centre hotshoe pin & just use it in manual or Auto (with light sensor in flash) only.

    I've used a Nikon remote cord with m4/3 bodies and it works fine. Auto mode works very well with the SB800.
