Is the Metz 58 AF-1 Flash Compatible with K2000/KM?

I have both, and when I started using the Metz on the K2000, I just can't get a decent picture. The straight-forward A setting on the Metz worked amazing well on my K20D. But on the K2000, it produces way over-exposed, totally washed out, blown out images. If I switch to any of the TTL modes, it under exposes and the WB is all wrong.

I never any problems, much less like these, on the K20D, so I'm wondering if there is something different with the K2000/KM that is throwing the Metz flash off?

Matt! Help!

That is strange, maybe you should try the K-m with a Pentax flash to see if it's doing the same ?

I don't have a K-m, but the Metz 58 AF-1 is working perfectly with my K100D.

I've never even actually seen a K2000 in person, so I'm afraid I can't help. I'd be surprised, though, if anything has changed that significantly.

I'd check the flash and the cam for correct settings (flash and exp.compensation, metering mode, etc). I don't know the 58, but the 48 works fine on my K-m.
