This seems to contradict the Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches documentation, which states that the 500 series support the following SFPs:-

MFEFX1 (100base-FX)

MFELX1 (100base-LX)

MFEBX1 (100base-BX U)

MGBBX1 (1000base-BX U)

MGBSX1 (1000base-SX)

MGBLH1 (1000base-LH)

MGBLX1 (1000base-LX)

MGBT1 (1000base-T)

SFP-H10GB-CU1M (Direct Attach 1m)

SFP-H10GB-CU3M (Direct Attach 3m)

SFP-H10GB-CU5M (Direct Attach 5m)

SFP-10G-SR (10Gbase-SR)

SFP-10G-LR (10Gbase-LR)

SFP-10G-LRM (10Gbase-LRM)

No mention of any BX-D support, for example (which would be a GLC-BX-D).
