K50 and SB600

Hi, I have just received a Pentax K50 which I will use for a lot of street photography. Does anyone know if it will be OK to use a Nikon SB600 flash with this? Thanks for your help.

It should be OK, as in it will not harm anything but it will only work as a manual flash. Pentax does not support the Nikon flash protocol and the Nikon flash does not support Pentax P-TTL.
