I have a new OM-D and had the same problem, the Nissin Di466 FT didn't fire.

It worked fine on my Panasonic GH2 and the Olympus Mini-Flash that came with the OM-D worked fine, too.

There seems to be a very thin layer of lacquer or anti-corrosive on the contacts of the OM-D's hotshoe.

After I pushed the Nissin Di466 several times back and forth, removed it, put it back on ....

it suddenly worked

It's just a little contact problem.

I hope this helps.
