Sigma 24-135mm 2.8 zoom

As other posters have noted, the Sigma 24-135 mm zoom lens causes my K10D's menu to disappear after only a second or two of display.

Will this cause damage to the K10D's circuits or programming? Is there any corrective action that can be taken?

Mine does this too. I don't think it will damage the camera. But it is certainly agravating to not be able to see the menu items.

I have tried turning the aperature ring and then back to "A." This seems to work for a little bit but then it goes back to flashing.

Haha, mine doesn't do it that much but it can become a pain in the ass when you need to change some settings.

My aperture ring stopped working two months ago and I've never got around to taking it in for repair. (The aperture only works on "A" setting)

Fortunately mine works perfectly fine. If you wish to fix it, I heard you can send it in to Sigma or ask the seller you purchased it from and have them send it in.

Has anyone actually sent the lens to Sigma and gotten it "fixed"?
