K5 and af360

Been messing about with the K5 and af360 today.
It seems to work quite well on the hot shoe in p-ttl mode in various exposure modes on the camera.
In wireless mode - different story. When in p-ttl mode it seems to under expose a lot depending on the scenes' reflectivity and brightness. Change to A mode on the flash and it works better. I think the pre flashes 'reflections fool the p-ttl mode easily.
Anyone else finding the same?
It seems to need a few practice shoots in wireless p-ttl to get it right, or easier to use A mode with exposure comp dialed in - but still needing few test shots.
Is there an easier way to do wireless flash consitently?
Maybe a flash hot shoe lead is better.

Mand, still learning
