The issue with TTL flash systems is that they are proprietary to the camera manufacturer.

Currently the only TTL system supported by Olympus cameras is their own FL series of flashes which are IR based and require line of sight. Metz also supports Olympus TTL but again IR.

Pocket wizard makes true radio control triggers that support TTL but so far only for Nikon and Canon and these units are quite pricey, you also need the matching TTL enabled flash units so the whole system can get fairly expensive.

I don't do enough flash work to worry about the TTL and find the Cactus units with multiple manual controlled units and modifiers will work for just about anything I need.
