it looks a capable flash, in the early 1980s I had a af200s, which at the time I thought was cool, so I look forward to playing with the af280t

A definite reason to get a Super-A over a Program-A, the Super-A has a lot of TTL flash options that will work with that beauty.

A good buy and a good gun. I still have mine.

Best regards

Does it have the zoom and wide angle adapters?

No zoom. There are two adapters that slot on the front AFW1 for wide angle and AFT1 for telephoto.

The two automatic settings make it a very useful gun to use on current Pentax DSLRs.

I too have the AF280T without the optional AFW1 and AFT1. Can't see me using it again. My heart says keep it for nostalgia's sake, my head says let it go to someone who can get some use out of it. Ditto the AF080C ring light set.

Maybe I should try my luck in Classified but it always seems so much simpler to let SRS have things.

It can get accurate exposure on digital bodies without guessing the compensation??

How? Would save me a large chunk of money if I could use this on K5

Looks awesome on LX And 15 for boxed version is a steal!
Pentax K-5 and co.
