...the N, Nikon version ...it has the same pin contact pattern as Pentax...you may need to cover the upper right hot-shoe contact with tape (on the K-30), as this contact triggers the wake up signal, or maybe not...

I finally received them. As it turns out they have replaced the 602 transmitters with 600, but as I understand they're basically the same.

But there is a (big?) problem! I have a K-30, the 602's, Metz 58-af2 on the receiver and two YN-560 III (they have receivers built-in).
So when I half-press the shutter release and then don't take the picture, all flashes fire when the viewfinder display turns off (if I'm right, that is when camera stops metering).

Please tell me someone here knows how to fix this

P.S. Flashes seem to fire perfectly every time I actually do take the picture, but there is an awful lot of flashing when I'm just preparing to take the shot

I found Yongnuo RF-602 flash triggers and Pentax - Overclockers Australia Forums, and according to this post I have to disable the SP pin on the transmitter.
Can anyone confirm this?
