AF 540FGZ Flash, Extension Cord F5P & Hot Shoe Adapter F

Items for Sale
  1. AF-540FGZ Flash
    This is a powerful flash with all of the AF, zoom, Wireless and PTTL features in the Pentax arsenal. This copy is fully functional and in fair-good condition There are minor scuff marks on the back of the head (just above the 540) and on the front diffuser. As shown in the photos, the battery compartment is missing one of the 3 locking lugs, which means that the door sits just a little proud on the head side (not an uncommon fault).

    The foot is in excellent shape and the bounce/diffuser cards work perfectly.

    Ships with the original box and paperwork.
  2. Hot Shoe Adapter F
    This is great for taking the flash off-camera and/or mounting another flash or trigger. I use this extensively when wireless mode doesn't suit - using the camera remote, or working in conjunction with other slaves. The unit is in good condition
  3. Extension Cord F5P
    Screws into the side of the Adapter F and the flash unit. This is a coiled cord stretching to 1m. The cord is in good condition

Hi, I'm interested in buying but a little concerned about the missing locking lug.
Are the 2 locking lugs strong enough to hold the battery in place?
Does this affect the performance of the flash at all?

Thanks for your interest.
I've been using it with just the two lugs for more than a year, without a hitch. They only have to hold the slight pressure from the battery springs.
