Any Pentax DSLRs with an electronic shutter?

Are there any? I miss my D40 for the electronic shutter for high speed off camera flash on MANUAL. I don't want high-speed sync where it cuts down power.

Edit: I'm planning to get the Panny LX3 and it's great for off-camera flash (electronic shutter). But if any Pentax DSLR have it I may get that one first hehe.

Aw shucks. I was kinda hoping the new k-m had an electronic shutter. I'll snatch that LX3 sometime next year, I loved syncing up to 1/1250! (kill that ambient!)

Thanks for the reply!

The K20D in "burst" mode uses an electronic shutter.

Wow - I just purchased a LX3 for my lightweight travel cam and had no idea it could sync so high! This will be an awesome strobist camera...
