I can't translate your numbers into anything I understand.

The numbers suggest that stopping the aperture down from f/4.0 to f/5.6 has no effect on the exposure. Other aperture settings work as expected.

You say you see the problem but it's not that bad. How bad is it?

It depends. It is bad enough to make flashmeters unusable. On the other hand, if you are using a G1 in a studio and judge the results by histograms -- you may not notice it.

What method do you suggest for optical slaving?

Cheap optical slaves are available for under $25, trigger them with the built-in flash.
