AFAIK the DA*55, DA*200 and DA*300

The easiest way to find out would probably be to get a K-EOS adapter and stick them on a 5D or put them on a good ol' PZ-1 or something and see what they look like. I would imagine most of the shorter DA lenses will vignette a lot and be a little rough on the edges regarding resolution and CA. Knowing how much Pentax is dedicated to the K-Mount and the fact many people still shoot Pentax film bodies..... I would suspect that if they truly worked well out to the edges on FF, Pentax would have marketed them as FF. Most tele lenses throw a pretty big image circle, and I would imagine the longer lenses would work ok on an FF body. I'm pretty sure someone tried the new 560 on a film body and it looked pretty good on the edges considering.

What I want to see is a 77mm Ltd on a FF body. That was a great lens. If Pentax does bring a FF DSLR to the table, you can rest assured the used price of this lens will go sky high.... Kinda like the cult classic Minolta 100/2 did when the A900 came out.
