Will my AF540FGZ work without alterations on a KP?

I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if this is a stupid question. I started out in photography about 40 years ago with a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic F. I still own that camera and love it. About 10 years ago I decided to go digital and purchased a Pentax istDL. I also still own that camera, but only like it, not love it. Anyway, about the same time I purchased a Pentax AF540FGZ, which I still have and use.

I plan on retiring this summer and want to get more into photography. I'm seriously considering the Pentax KP. My question is; will my flash (not a II) work on the KP without any problems? Or will I need to make adjustments? And if so, what? Any responses to my questions are most appreciated. I look forward to future activity on this site. Thanks.

It should work fine. It's even covered in the KP manual [PDF - 14MB], and shown as fully compatible [page 120].

The KP product page on the Ricoh site is also worth a look. Very interesting camera.

Also: welcome to the forum.
