Pntx AF080C ring flash

Hi there,
Does any body know if Pntx AF080C ring flash works with the K 30. Or the new Metz wireless ringflash is a better option?
Thanks

I use it on a K-x and it must be used in manual mode, like all the older pre-P-TTL bodies require.

For macro you're really shooting in M anyway, right?

I have the AF080C. It is designed for the TTL flash protocol used in the LX and 645 cameras, so it is a manual flash on the PTTL cameras. Still, with the ability to chimp that isn't any real problem. Here's a link to its instruction manual Pentax Flashes, AF280t, af200s, af200t, Pentax AF220T, af160, AF330FTZ, pentax AF 360 FGZ, Pentax AF 400T, Pentax AF 500 FTZ instruction manual, Pentax flash instruction manual, user manual, free PFD camera manuals

thank you to both of you. I want to use the flash, combined with my Tamron 90mm to take picture od teeth in the mouth.
