Godox v860ii - do they work with Pentax cameras?

I found an article on Godox R2 Pro-P trigger that supports hss and pttl. Checked their product page, seems it works with a bunch of their flashes, mainly with newer models, and especially with their more expensive studio kits. However, it works with the v860ii, which are fairly reasonably priced. I got excited, but searching on Google didn't give me any results for v860ii compatibility with Pentax cameras.

On v860ii product page Pentax is not mentioned, but they also don't mention the Olympus/Panasonic model that is available for sale. I guess they didn't update their website?

So, do they work with Pentax cameras or not?))

The short of it is Godox v860II's of any camera brand flavour ( Canon, Nikon, Sony etc ) will work off camera with Xpro-P (also called R2 Pro-P) triggers in HSS and TTL but not directly on the cameras hot shoe where they become manual flashes only.
V860II's will need the latest firmware update to do this. There is already a thread about this. Xpro-P TTL Wireless Flash Trigger for Pentax

That's in addition to remote strobes such as the AD100Pro, AD200, etc, which can be triggered via their Pentax-compatible remote triggers.
