Short answer: no. Many people run a variety of synthetic (Mobil 1, Amsoil, etc) or "regular" dino. The weight you use will depend on your weather, temperature, etc. 15w50 is common, along with 10w30, so your 10w50 is not out of spec.
Long answer: If you use the search function here for "oil thread" or something similar you will find a wealth of material. Some of it almost becomes a flame war, as oil seems to be like an opinion :-} Do some reading here and elsewhere and come to your own conclusion.
You can always check with a local dealer and see what weight or brand they use.
