Can I use the AF-360FGZ?

I got the AF-360FGZ together with an MZ-3 and I was wondering whether I could use it with my K-70 without frying the electronics. Do you have any info or experience?

It would be pretty unusual for a Pentax flash to fry a Pentax camera unless the flash was an old model.

Yep. It's a nice flash, and you're good to go. Just be careful with the battery door. It can be a bit fiddly. And don't forget the pin interlock when removing.
