It does rotate and tilt but it does not work with P-TTL. But my studio flashes don't work with P-TTL either.

It's just a really cheap but working alternative

Received the camera & lens today -- glad I got the battery grip. I went out without it to take these test shots, and my hand hurt after a while of only being able to use 3 fingers to support the camera.
Some test photos here: Pentax K5 and 50-135 2.8 initial test - a set on Flickr

Not too bad considering it was gloomy and overcast and I was hand-holding, and read about 4 pages of the manual.

Definitely miss both the wide end and the distance of the 18-200. Wide far moreso than distance. Think my initial idea of getting something like a sigma 8-16 and a 28mm prime may have merit.

I'm not sure if I like the bokeh on this lens. It feels... I dunno... streaky? Maybe it just takes some getting used to. I'll try some night shots later and see if those feel better.
