I had hoped to avoid having to buy a third trigger (since the Metz "should" be able to be put into optical slave mode) but even testing with my old 360GZ, it doesn't seem to fire but will fire off the on-board flash from both my Pentax K-5 & my Lumix GX-1.

Based on that, my guess it's the Metz and not the Canon...
