Minolta Flash on k10D ?

Hi there,
some days ago I found in the fotobag of my father an older minolta 2800AF flash (with 5Pins), put it on my k10d and made one shot and it worked. Then I remembered something about killing the k10d with the wrong flash, but it still works.

What do you think? Can I take the risk ok using this flash on my pentax?

Greetings from Heidelberg, OlliO

they've been tested at 1.75 or so volts, so it's safe.

Plus, if it was going to kill it, it probably would have been on that first shot.
