K-5 flash compatibility

Is the Pentax AF400FTZ flah unit compatible with the K-5? Polarity does not appear to be marked on the contacts.

It should work fine. Aparrently you might lose some power control options, but it will fire.(It might only fire at full power)

Thank you. I just really wanted to be sure that the flash unit would not fry the camera. I will experiment with the settings.
