Sigma 70-300 DG compatible with K5iis


Does anyone know if the sigma 70- 300mm DG macro lens works with the K5iis? I just bought the K5iis and my camera wont work with the lens. It works with my K20 so i assumed it would be compatible. Any feedback on this would be appreciate.

I tend to bonk my A lenses out of the A setting a lot without realizing it. Only giveaway is when suddenly everything goes dark because I'm firing at f/22 or something like that.
