K5 and Sigma EF-530 DG Super Flash

Hi everybody.
I don't want to start another topic about k5 flash overexpose but only to ask if Sigma flashes has problems on K5 and particularly this flash: EF-530 DG Super.
On the other forum (dpreview), a user says that this flash don't have any problem with k5 and it's very good in direct, bounced and even wireless.
It is true ? Anybody tested it and can confirm this ?

I guess that user would be me...
But it seems the problem mainly is with P mode and Auto-iso, and I seldom use this mode, so I'll have to try this a little bit more...

All I can say for sure is that I've had no problem in bounced and wireless modes in Av (auto-iso or not) and X modes...
