Suggestion for Pentax - We need a PTTL Ring flash

Pentax seems to be a harder sell for macro shooters these days with only 3 native macro lenses and NO ring flash options (not too mention the need for an articulating screen on new APS/C products). Please bring a PTTL ring flash back to market!

Humm, strange I have a very nice Pentax Ring Flash PTTL. The Pentax AF160FC. I use it on Pentax K S2, Pentax Q S1, Pentax 645 N ii, and my Pentas Superprogram. Works great on all of them.

But it isn't available new anymore.

The AF160s are easy enough to find used. What I'd love to see from Pentax is a new set of macro tubes with data pins supporting automatic aperture control.

that is kind of odd.

i have only come across, once, a set of AF160FC, on same om ebay.

And the asking price is rather ridiculously high.

The other "near alternative" is the Sigma EM-140DG, which is also rather difficult to come across (in pentax mount).

In canon or nikon mount, plenty around.

$30 or whatever can get you a ring diffusion modifier to put on any flash you like. I have a Neewer clone.
