John and nathan-

Just for the record, all my shots were done in the P for programed auto mode, and both the Oteka, and my old Canon EX-420 adjust automatically without any problems at all.

Just to give an update here about the 430EX + S5:

When the S5 is in P mode: it does change what master menu options display when pressing the MENU button as opposed to the Tv and Av modes.

P mode: you DO NOT have access to the flash setting of Auto or Manual (this menu item is not even listed when pressing the MENU button).
P mode: allows you to adjust the flash in 1/3 stop increments from -2 to +2 when pressing the FUNC button and selecting the flash exposure compensation setting.

Tv/Av mode: gives you access to change the flash from Auto or Manual after pressing the MENU button.
Tv/Av mode: when the flash is set for AUTO (via MENU button), you can adjust the flash in 1/3 stop increments from -2 to +2 when pressing the FUNC button and selecting the flash exposure compensation setting.
Tv/Av mode: when the flash is set for MANUAL (via MENU button), you can adjust the flash output in finer stop increments from 1/64 power to 1/1 full power when pressing the FUNC button and selecting the flash exposure compensation setting.

So you actually have far greater manual control over the flash's output when the camera is set for Tv/Av mode and with the flash set for MANUAL.
