K-5 18-55 kit lens mount

Hello,
Is the DA18-55 WR supplied as the kit lens with the K-5 a plastic L mount or a metal mount? I can imagine what one of our eighth grade yearbook "photographers" would do trying to change a lens and push the release button simultaneously with a plastic mount. Any reasonably priced tilt flash units you could recommend for the K-5 in an adult's hands?

Thanks for all the great service on my K-7 and supplies.

It's not a metal mount- it's an $150 lens, not a $50 lens

Hello,

This Sigma EF610 DG ST Flash for Pentax is a powerful (guide number of 61) shoe mount flash designed for use with Pentax SLR cameras. TTL automatic flash exposure control is available for all compatible cameras. An auto zoom function automatically sets the optimum illumination angle according to the focal length in use (from 24mm to 105mm), or with the built-in wide panel, 17mm.
