Review Date: January 7, 2019 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: None indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: HSS Support for Pentax; TTL Passthrough
Cons: expensive

I will test them further. So far they are quite useful for HSS (at lest with the specialised Pentax Firmware.)
My Metz 58 AF-2 (newest firmware) can now be controlled wirelessly. (Zoom, Flashpower and TTL can be set via a Cactus transceiver.)
