Yes, that's correct. As such, it can be somewhat of a pain, but it's usable. Check out accessory database section for details:

I thought the 500 didn't have an Auto mode outside of TTL (which the K-x dslr does not support). I think you're going to be adjusting the output in Manual mode otherwise, you'll be firing at full power all the time.
