I just bought a 12-24 and I'm using it with the k1. When I look through the viewfinder, I see this thick black rectangle about a third of the way from the edge of the frame. It seems that all my images are coming out with in that rectangle instead of using the entire frame.


It's a DA lens i.e. for APS-C sensor. Especially the hood of the lens is for APS-C sensor size. Just take off the hood, then you will see the circular edges of the wide angles from 12 to about 16mm.

Did you read the OP?
