The AF280T works wonderfully with good ol' TTL Flash Mode on the *ist D, the *ist DS, and the *ist DS2, but - more importantly nowadays - it works just great in Auto Flash (thyristor) Mode on just about any Pentax DSLR. [The thyristor is the light sensor in the middle of that green circle on the flash front.]

Thanks fwcetus for your observations re the AF280T. For those who may have camera brands other than Pentax, the unit in Auto also works wonderfully with your camera too.

That is one great little flash. Small but powerful. I have 2 of them.
