sunpak mz440af and K5

A week ago a friend gave me a mint cond. Sunpak mz440af for pentax. Is it safe to use with the K5. I know it's not P-TTL. But for the mean time I would like to use it. Thanks

The flash is new enough it should be safe to use, it was probably intended for the MZ/ZX series film cameras. You may not get much control over power levels (possibly full power only?) if it is using old style TTL with no manual power settings and no auto thyristor modes.

Thanks for a quick responds, I just wanted to make sure the flash was safe to use on the K5, didn't want to damage the camera. Of what I've read on the internet the flash is 6 voits, TTL and it's not that old, but just
wanted to make sure before I tried it on the camera. Thanks again.
