Any experiences with a ringflash on the K-r?

I have seen several threads suggesting that people are having trouble with flash heads on the K-r and I wondered if anyone had tried the Pentax or Metz ring flashes?

the pentax AF160FC in P-TTL mode is very accurate, I have been using mine on a K10 and K7 and even on a Nikon D3s (I couldn't use P-TTL though)

There isn't much that can go wrong with ringflash, since the light source is so close to the optical axis the metering system doesn't have to work all that hard to get things right.

Thanks, Digitalis!

It's a chunk of change, but a great look. Anyone tried the Metz Mecablitz 15 MS-1?
