    All the ones with center 'pin' should be ok.
    I'm using PT-04II

    If you only have one flash, (the Metz58 I presume), then you can actually trigger it with your on-camera flash.
    Just in case you did not know.

    You bought the nikon version or the canon version, since they have no pentax version.

    Hm... Ok i go and try later... But let's say I wanna use the built in wireless flash on the Pentax to control the metz58... What if I wanna add on another flash, must it be another metz or can be any other brand ? Must the flash be pttl supported ?

    Can be another brand, but its got to support pttl and pentax wireless.
    Usually that is costly, so that's why most ppl opt for wireless triggers and cheap manual flashes

    first time see one with AAA battery for transmitter as well, I only know cactus v5 use AAA, but cactus v5 is more than 80 sgd, much more expensive
