None that will work with p-ttl.
Pentax used to make one but its ttl and the k10d does not support that.
If youd be satisfied with Auto and Manual modes then I assume you can buy just about any.

Personally I wouldnt mind an ABR800 but thats for a different use
The sigma ringflash looks like a decent unit for macro.

As said above, Pentax made a couple ring flashes before, but both are TTL flashes which might not work well on K10D. You have to use them in manual mode.

My 10D is still working after using AF-080C. You can use it with Av, Tv or in manual mode, or in X-mode, or ...
