The Pentax OEM P-TTL flashes ALL work even if used on the old model cameras and the newer ones.
Remember, third party flashes tried to reverse engineer the Pentax flashes but it would seem that they don't get it perfect or exactly right, thereby needing firmware updates on their products once found not to work with the new model cameras.

Hi, I bought one of these a week ago and think it's great, really easy to use, cheap and solid. I was looking for an Omni-bounce type diffuser and wondred if anyone knew what size would be suitable? I can measure the Cactuas AF50 and have seen them for the Canon 580ex etc. but don't know what size they are, any ideas?

Many thanks,
