Okay, you got me on that one, Alex. BUT if one is buying and carrying lenses that are of a size to fit a full-frame camera, it would be nice to have the option to go that route. The low-light capabilities of full-frame sensors are amazing and getting cheaper each year while Canon, Nikon and Sony DO provide that option. How many current Pentax digital lenses even cover a full-frame image circle without heavy vignetting? I'm asking - I don't honestly know.

Various people have tested this by putting their DA and DA* lenses on a 35mm camera and taking pictures.

I have done so myself. The index to the results on my website is at the link below, and this page has some links to the results of other people too. The analysis, with various degrees of quality, has been done for a large number of Pentax lenses.
