It's really not the same thing. But why the little supplied flash won't work with a ttl cable ? I was thinking of getting one.

Because the little supplied flash is not powered through the shoe, it uses that accessory port on the back, that little unit only contains flash tube, all the other gubbings are built into the camera.

And so far Olympus has not deigned to provide an extension cable for the accessory port add-ons (macro lights MAL-1, external sound SEMA-1, electronic viewfinders VF-2/VF-3/VF-4, flashes FL-LM1/FL-LM2, or whatever the bluetooth accessory is called).  I really, really would have liked an extension cord for the VF-2.

Just for fun, I've tried various cables (HDMI, mini-HDMO, micro-HDMI, various displayport, etc.) and none of them fit the accessory port.
