Will PocketWizard Plus II's work fine on the Pentax K-1 hotshoe?

I assume so, but I don't know for 100% certain.

Yeah, it's a standard hotshoe as used across the industry, Kevin.

You understand though that the flash you're firing with it will only be working in Manual mode, not TTL, though, right?

Thanks :-) Yes I understand it would only work for manual. That's fine.
I was just making sure Pentax was using the standard hotshoe. While that is generally standard, it is always good to confirm. For example, Sony went with a nonstandard hotshoe design for some of their cameras, which I think was unwise. I don't own Pentax. I was just verifying this for someone else. Thanks for the reply!

Yes, Sony have undone their mistake.

Your friend can use your brand's flash on top of their Pentax, too.
