Re: Digital Concepts PTTL flash and K10D?

Thanks for taking the time to test that flash., Good to know that not only Soligor but also the other "brands" have P-TTL now.

Do you see anything on the flash that indicates that this is one of the newer P-TTL flashes?
A serial number maybe?

But when I close the aperture to a point where the
manual full charge is exposed correctly, the P-TTL underexposes.
For some reason, the P-TTL doesn't deliver a full charge.

I can't be totally sure, but I think other flashes show this, too, but maybe not as drastic.

Curiously, when the flash is set to first curtain sync, the flash
icon in the viewfinder stays lit even if the flash is not ready,
causing me to sometimes shoot before the flash is charged.

Did you set your camera to "allow shot when flash not charged"?

The manual says it should produce only 80 flashes on a set of fresh
alkaline batteries. I used a set of 2000mAh NiMH, shot 250 flash
pictures, and they are still going strong.

That number usually refers to shots at full power. Also, modern NiMH batteries deliver more flashes than alkaline batteries.

quirks, mentioned above. Looking at the specs, I believe it is
identical to the Soligor DG-420 Z mentioned above.

Indeed.

Cheers
Jens
