Has somebody ever tried the DA* 50-135 on full frame?

Obviously, several DA lenses are actually usable on a full frame body (see thread below).

I wonder if the DA* 50-135 could be used, too?

It's usable if you want to play with it and crop the scans. I couldn't tell you what the actual focal length was without digging the film out. Sometimes it's more fun to just try it rather than be told it can't be done.
