    Since you are using DA lens, why there was no vignetting? Could you have croped the photo which would result in further loss in resolution and details?
    from what I tested, the DA40 is full frame, and I heard the DA 70 is too - not sure if the DA 21 is full frame

    I've tried DA70 on MZS, wide open there was no vignetting at all. But I'm not sure about edge sharpness ...

    As ppl said, DA40 and DA70 have no problem. Actually I think DA40 performs very good on film.
    DA21 cannot, I have to crop out the edge out the middle square area.

    u may want to try the old man Super Takumar on velvia etc. you'll love it. If you can land yourself with some eastern germans lens, you'll love the color saturation too.

    I used to have many M42 lens, takumar, CZJ, etc. But I sold them all already

    Just for some causal film shots, I m not sure if it's worth to buy some back.

    Nevertheless, I do have a S-M-C takumar 35/3.5 and a Exaktar 35/2.8 in hand, I tried the S-M-C takumar 35/3.5 with Kodak Portra 400vc last Sat. Will see the results soon.
