Why on earth u want to use such an expensive flash on ur camera??? I dn't think so it can work cos the contact point on the flash and ur hotshoe is different, maybe able to fire the flash as normal but no TTL fuction frm the flash, not sure also, never try before.
Cos frm what I understand nikon and olympus camera have different contact point on the hotshoe, so this is where how the flash comminacte with the camera, if it's not the correct 1, how on earth is tis EXpensive flash going to get in touch with ur camera, just the point of my view.

You should be able to just fire it, but no flash ready light, not ttl, no anything. Full manual flash only..........

Probably not what you wanna hear though......
