Hi Peteo,

I'm not an expert on Pentax but I know some people have had issues with the triggers that are Canon Nikon dedicated. In many cases they will still work just loosing the flash wake-up feature (& TTL pass through hotshoe on Tx), but the safe option with Pentax is often the triggers with a single firing pin like the Cactus V5. As they are a little more universal with no TTL pins on the transmitter foot or receiver shoes to clash with the camera or flashes.

Phottix again have a higher quality single firing pin trigger in the Atlas II, but they are closer to PockwtWizards range and price at $89 each unit.

Other single firing pin triggers are the Alienbees Cybersyncs and

PocketWizard Plus III, but neither have a hotshoe on the receivers (like Cactus V5 or Atlas II) so you would need to attach them to the flash via Pc sync cord.
