third party flash for k5

greetings to all

I have a K5. What is the recommended trigger voltage for this camera. What third party flash can I use for this camera. Can I use old TTL flash.
I am a full manual legacy lens user and I don't see much benefit from using new PTTL flash. I don't want to invest much for the flash as I don't use it often.

Welcome to the forum, you need to be careful here with some of the older units and trigger voltages and such like.

Metz, I'm sure have a compatibility listings on their web site.
