Metz SCA 3000 needed but which one ?

HI,

I'd like to use a buunch of old but excellent Metz 40 MZ2 flash guns.
I know the SCA372 is the one to use for older cams but for newer ones, there's been compatibility problems with more recent cameras.

So, to put it simply: I want to use my 40MZ2 with my K1 and my K5. I know tehre's no PTTL and I don't care, simple Auto with automatic exposition parameters transferred to the flash (as it worked well with Z1 and the time).

Which one do I need ?

Thanks !

If it is right it should be this one: Metz Adapter SCA 3702 voor Pentax: Amazon.nl. But I use the 372 (the one for the older camera's) with the 45ct4 and set it to the appropriate aperture and iso value. This gives excellent results within the ASA/ISO reach of the flash. The compatibility issue is that you cannot use TTL. All other settings work is my experience.
