does K20D use screwlock PC socket?

Quick question for you K20D owners...does the body have a regular PC socket or a screwlock PC socket?

Here's a description of the differences:

The cap that protects the PC plug is screwed on and it looks like the size of a screw lock PC. I donít have a screw lock PC cable so I canít say that it is only that it looks like it is.

I'm new to the whole sync thing, but if you are refering to a cable that locks into the socket, it doesn't lock and just pulls out.

After looking at your post of what a screw lock is, I would imagine it would work since the cap does screw in. So it certainly looks possible. You may want to try customer service to confirm it.

regular PC cables are compatible w/ the screwlock PC socket.
screwlock PC cables are *not* compatible w/ a regular PC socket.
Just FYI...
