I'd be much more interested in Pentax support for the Flashpoint R2 PRO MkII trigger (which is a variant of the Godox XPro trigger).

The Godox XPro-P exists, but I find the Flashpoint MkII version with its additional buttons, better usability, and Bluetooth support much more appealing. It's available for every brand except for Pentax.
If you agree with me, please write to Adorama and ask for the Flashpoint R2 PRO MkII trigger for Pentax.

It's great to see that Pentax is getting some needed support in the lighting department.

Thanks, just sent them an email. Do you know if any of the Flashpoint triggers will trigger the strobes? For example can I put a Flashpoint R2 for Canon on my Pentax and still trigger the strobes (though without TTL)?

There is the Flashpoint R2 Pro (XPro-P) for Pentax which will trigger all Godox/Flashpoint strobes, supporting P-TTL and HSS for Pentax.

This is a good trigger but the "MkII" variant that Adorama offers exclusively is just a bit better.

That should work as long as you don't exceed the sync-speed of your camera. No TTL or HSS, of course, but manual remote power control would be supported.

BTW, the Flashpoint R2 Mark II TTL Transmitter for Pentax Cameras (X2T-P) triggers is available for pre-order.

P.S.: Many thanks for writing to Adorama!

Just the branding.

Godox manufactures both. Adorama just resell the same hardware under their house brand "Flashpoint". It is a good idea to buy the Flashpoint variant to receice customer service.

Godox make very good equipment but are known for their very bad customer service.

Thank you for clarifying. In Europe we only get the Godox brand.
