Good news if they do it. Generally only Godox trigger needs to be compatible with the camera it is attached to. For existing versions the Godox flash units can be for any of the supported cameras if the trigger is used. This is true at least for the 860 series. Since the same trigger controls the 200 it should hold true for it too.

Phottix & now Godox offering radio TTL triggers and flash kits for Pentax.

Great news. Looks like it may be my next flash, once the Pentax X-1 trigger is available. Keen to see the first Pentax user reviews.

It is June and the Godox global site says nothing about Pentax support for this unit.

GODOX PHOTO EQUIPMENT CO.,LTD AD200

A site search for "Pentax" returns zero.

This is nice, I've been wishing Godox to consider Pentax too.

Good to have third party lighting equipment supporting Pentax.

Sort of like when Adorama made a similar slip-up a few years back with their Flashpoint (relabeled Godox) brand flash. It was there and then it wasn't and never returned, despite support being added Fuji, Sony, Olympus, and Panasonic.

This update is at the end of the link posted above. So maybe it will still happen.

It seems, though, that Godox may have listened to the cries for help from Pentax users. According to a listing on the Godox UK online store for the dual AD200 kit, Pentax TTL support is coming sometime in June. Yes, this month. Or, maybe next year.

I took that paragraph to mean that the author feels that the listing of Pentax on the UK store may have been a premature listing rather than a mistaken or obsolete* listing. I also took it to mean that the author has no more special knowledge than we do. The bit about June of which year read like irony to me.

Here is the Wayback machine archive from May 2017

Yes, June 2017. Fuji and Olympus were indeed added last summer, but alas, Pentax was not.

And I got my hopes up...

It was rumored before that godox was going to make flash triggers for pentax but that never came to pass. I'll believe it when I see it. But I do truly hope it comes. And given that's already mid June...I have my doubts.

Same here, but the rumour density has been higher recently, so I think it will happen sometime soon.

Anyone considering the Godox AD200, should also consider the Cactus RQ250, though. Not available yet, but looks very promising, i.e., a real contender to the AD200.

Godox makes good stuff for the money. I have been pleasantly surprised. I have had 1 trigger that was DOA, but other than that everything has worked better than expected. This is the kind of 3rd party support Ricoh needs.
