A very shocking news

It appears as though it had finally happened. Canon joining forces with Pentax. The end of an era as we know it. I guess this is it. Amen.

Not really, I'm pretty sure that Pentax flash is in fact compatible with Canon cameras.

I'm also pretty sure the OP is using the most universal language of all: sarcasm.

I am so very disappointed that you so-called Pentaxians did not know about this. How could you???

BTW, I am being accused of being, of all things, sarcastic. That really hurts.

Is there anything more sarcastic than someone who claims to be innocent of sarcasm?

BUT WE HAVE HAD L-glass for at least 15 years! Just look at the Pentax A 2x-L and 1.4x-L tele converters. That was a very revealing nomenclature.

I'm normally using a dedicated Pentax TTL ring flash with Canon camera. Not a big deal, just isolate the unnecessary contacts and you can shoot macro with Canon as well.
