help with a AF540fgz

I have aAF540FGZ that I bought with my 1stDL in 2006 and want to use it with a new K-IIs.  Is the older flash the same as the 540 I see on Pentax product page?

Greetings. The AF540FGZ flash will function with the PENTAX K-5IIs. The AF 540FGZ II (our latest model) has been re-designed to include an LED video light, sllghtly different controls and is smaller than the AF 540FGZ. Both flash units will function with the K-5 IIs. Thanks!

Hi Joe, I haven't seen this anywhere, but has the new II generation resolved the issue with Bounce flash overexposure? This is a very widely discussed problem of the 540 flash had with pre-K-3 bodies. I seem to remember somewhere that it was explained as a hardware issue...

Thank you
