Please excuse me if this has been discussed before (I'm new here)
I just discovered that the Sigma EF 500 DG-ST will not work properly on the K10 – GX10.
I picked up a nice used one from my local camera shop and was trying it out at work today and was getting really weird results. Took it back to the camera shop to find out if I was doing something wrong… we came to the conclusion the two weren't compatible. We tried the 530 and it works just fine. Just thought it might save someone some trouble.

Entirely possible as your 500st needs to be rechipped if it is of one of the earlier stock. It should be ok with DL or DL2 or even K100D which is what I have.

Usually rechipping is free
