The 530 has a higher guide number than the 500, 53vs50.

the 530 has "super" in the name.

I think the power is the difference.

It's a newer model, so there's other small things. It has support for K10D from the get-go, for example. (Older 500 flashes may need to be sent to Sigma for a firmware upgrade.)
