It looks fresh-baked and yummy, but I wouldn't eat it.

Great choice for a title.

Ringflash seems to make the difference in these kind of shots - I overkill them with the 540 ....nice shot.

I'm using a Sunpak DX-8R. I got it used from KEH for 50 dollars. Mine came with a Nikon module, but it works fine on a Pentax. Came with 3 ring adapters, but I only use the 49mm, that's the one needed for the Pentax 100mm f4 macro. I was on KEH just a few hours ago, they have 3 of the DX-8R's listed for around 40 bucks. None of them come with a module, but they also have 3 or 4 modules listed for around 12 bucks. The Pentax PT-1D or 2D will work. The standard module will also work. Just look under Sunpak shoe mount flashes, and look under accessories for the modules.
