Sigma EF 500DG super flash owners and K10, you need to read this

I just e-mailed sigma and asked about their D500 super if it will be compatable with the new K10d

this is what they wrote:

QuoteQuote:
The flash may need to be upgraded to work with these cameras. If the serial number of the flash is less then 8063038, then it will need to be upgraded.

Thank you,

upcoming k10 owners thinking about the 500 super should keep this in mind as well

here is another answer for the upgrade if needed

If you need to upgrade yours, here is the e-mail response to that question

They would have to send the flash to our service department to be upgraded. All of our stock has been upgraded. So some lenses with the lower serial number will be compatible. You will have to check with the dealer to see if they have compatible versions.

Did they say what the problem is. My lower numbered DG 500 Super works perfectly in P-TTL mode with my DS, what has changed to cause this problem?

Cheers.

They did not say why it will need to be updated.....
Possibly it will not work with all the k10/lens combinations?

get in touch with them and let us know the details
