That is for Sigma cameras, you need P-TTL for Pentax.

Yes it would, unless you have a Sigma camera. Unless it is being nearly given away you shouldn't bother with it, they make a Sigma 530 for Pentax with P-TTL and it isn't very expensive.

Here is pretty much the best guide for P-TTL:
The Definitive Guide - Pentax P-TTL Flash Comparison

I'm a manual flash user, with a Yongnuo YN-560 and a Vivitar 285HV. I'd probably go for a Metz if I wanted P-TTL.
