Purchased Metz 26 AF-2 for Pentax GR on advice of B&H; GR won't recognize it

I just purchased the Metz 26 AF-2 for my Pentax GR from B&H on the advice of your consultant. My GR won't recognize the flash unit although my Pentax K3-II (also purchased from B&H) will. Is this operator error on my part or is the GR technology so old that the Metz unit actually isn't compatible. Would appreciate any advice as I have worked through GR manual. Thanks.

According to Ricoh's web site, they list a flash that can do TTL. "This external flash can do TTL flash using pre-flash."

I do not see they list any type of TTL functionality for the GR. There is this notation: " External TTL flashes (GF-1) will not fire when using [Interval Composite] and [Interval Shooting]."

The manual indicates "Use only flash units with one signal terminal" only the GF-1 will provide TTL so the advice of purchasing the Metz flash was incorrect. Please contact our Customer Service Dept to set up an RMA.

I apologize for the oversight.
