Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 and D7500 compatibility issue

Hi everyone,

I believe that there is a compatibility  issue with the D7500 and the 17-50 f/2.8 lens when using the on board flash.

when using this combo i can only take 1 shot using the flash, when i try to take a second shot the shutter release button does not work. The only way to get around this issue i am aware of, is to turn the camera off and on after each shot.

I have tried using both manual and auto modes, and both of these in continuous slow and single shot.

I do not have this issue when using my Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens with my D7500, or when using my 17-50 with my D7100 camera.

All this leads me to believe that it is specific to this combination.

Is anyone else aware of this issue? Is Sigma aware of this issue?
