Hello... new to the forum. I am considering purchasing one of the Pentax D-SLR's, (not sure whether to go the DS/DL/DS2 route yet), and I was just wondering if I can use my Metz 45 CL-4 flash with the SCA 374/2AF adapter with one of these?

It worked wonderfully with my old SF1N, and I'd hate to have to purchase another expensive flash if I get one of the new *ist cameras.

Also, does anybody have a good answer as to what the differences are between a flash designed for a digital camera, versus one that is designed for an analogue camera? Apparently, the Metz site does not recommend the 45 CL-4 for any of the newer digital cameras, and I'd like to know why.

Thanks in advance for any help.
-Peter.:?

Sorry... just noticed that maybe this should go in the flash forum...

Hi, you can use any flash with istD/... if the trigger-voltage is not higher than 30 V (Metz is ok) - a list of many trigger-voltages is on http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html

Metz recommends for the pentax DSLR's the SCA 3702-Adapter. But p-ttll is not supported, only a-ttl (works fine, I use an old flash too)

You can find those info's on www.metz.de (I think, they have an english version, if not and you have problems understanding the infos, I can translate
