The tape solves the problem. The trigger part is safe, the other contacts are not.

I have not tested canon or Nikon TTL-flashes on Olympus, nor I'm going to... But the electronics and processors behind those contacts may get the problem. But I'm sure the problem will be found on the first try.

Anyhow, there is little to win with mixing the flashbrands/ sure compatibility. If you need flash  simultaniously in different bodies, why not get suitable ones? Or, if you are going to use them in non-ttl-mode, just some old and cheap ones, or new and cheap ones with safe trigger voltage? I use some old T32-flashes as light and portable studio lightning - and also together with Fl-50 flash on my camera, when I need some extra power in large rooms. Thank Good E3 has the pc-cord output...

I still don't advice to try Canon or Nikon TTL-flash on Olympus - or otherwise.
