Does anyone know if the AF Illuminator on the Metz AF-1 works with Olympus and/or Panasonic M4/3 cameras?

I have a Nissin Di466 and the illuminator on that doesn't work with my cameras...

because for CDAF you need uninterrupted light to fill a spot and not strobes and not PDAF pattern

However, the focus assist light on the flashes (as opposed to what the cameras do with the pop-up flash) in classical 4/3rds is uninterrupted light.  However, it is a red light with cross hairs so the camera can find the contrast.  I believe the FL-600R's focus assist light is white (since it doubles as a video light).
