Full frame lenses help!

I forgot which symbol denotes the lense is a full frame. Could someone tell me again?

Anything with an FA, F, A, M, K, and M42 should be safe. Outside of those symbols, they were made for the cropped sensor but MIGHT work for FF (you won't know unless it was tested by someone on this forum).

This might help... FYI I'm thinking about taking the 60-250 off the list.

In the lens database, there's an icon which says FF when a lens is full-frame:
All Current K-Mount Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

The general rule of thumb is that DA series lenses are not, while all other lenses are.

"D FA" = Full Frame & the DA 35/2.4 is supposed to be FF compatible - J

Edit - I'm hoping that a PF user will post about the new DA 50/1.8 to see if it's FF, too
