Thanks to fengwei who gave the idea that i try out the Pentax DA's Limited on the 35mm film SLR. I suggested i will use them on the expired film since i got some free. This morning i bought them out for some shots. This are not in-depth test shots but i just share some of this photos for reference..

Seems like the DA 35 can still be used (marginally and can be corrected in post processing) ... though it's really down to DA 40 and 70.

Thanks Desmond for the test. Seems DA21 is the only one which doesn't work well on FF film camera at all. The DA35 results look not bad :cool:

So far the 70 works best. Anyway they are more suitable for digital and I'm not using them on my film.

I took 3 close shots with the DA35, result quite good. Anyway at least after trying them out i have a better idea now. Not using them on my ZX-L as i have a more suitable lens.;)
