Hi Dave

It does work with the AF240FT, I think you mentioned you had one of these in a previous post. Just put it on the hotshoe, turn the camera on, then the flash (set to TTL) go to TV or AV on the camera (make sure the flash is ready), set the EV comp up two or down two. You should notice that the aperture and shutter speed do not change and the flash output varies. Won't work with P mode or Green. If it doesn't you may have a bad contact or something. Don't know if it works with other flashes other than Pentax though.
