How about K5ii and K5iiS?
Do they work fine with third party flashes?

I've tried my metz 52 af-1 with my pentax k-5 in wireless P-TTL using the camera flash in controller mode.

the results are ok with:

Pentax SMC-A 50 f 1.7
Tokina 80-400 f 4-5.6

got significative overexposure with Pentax SMC DA 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 ED AL (IF) DC WR, worst with white surfaces, from 1 to 2 EV.

It seems that the problem is reduced setting the flash zoom manually to 105 mm.

I'll do more test and post the results. I still have to try with my sigma 50 f 2.8 macro.
