    Default Lens Compatibility

    http://www.robertstech.com/compat.htm

    Found a useful website if you're wondering about the various types of lenses (eg. A, K, M) and their compatibility to various bodies...

    The Sigma 8-16mm, K-5 doesn't show as 8mm on the camera, it says 10mm instead. And so on so forth. 16mm is shown as 18mm on camera...
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    Thats strange cos the min FL that you can set on the K-5 for MF lenses is 8mm...

    ! Not Recommended. The image formed by the lens does not cover the full 24x36 frame resulting in vigneting (dark corners). Exceptions: Some users report that the DA 40mm does cover the full frame and that some DA zooms at least at some focal lengths also cover the full frame. ---> lucky no vignetting for DA 40

    (P | mf) ----> it works in P mode only

    not really have DA40... heard that the new DA35 2.4 can right? still have the DFA100mm wr with me also...

    if (P | mf) ----> it works in P mode only, M mode will work also?
