It definately does not. DA 50-200 is not FF worthy lens by any reasonable measure. Unless used with TC of course, but that makes it very dim (f6.7 if I remember well).

Have you tested it and can you post pictures in the DA lenses on FF or similar thread?

If you mean without TC, it is pointless. It has been posted by other forum members already - twice. If you mean with TC, then it simply doesn't belong there.

Maybe it could be usable with a TC - a 1.4x teleconverter essentially enlarges central portion of the image circle produced by the lens to cover the whole image sensor. I tried it with 1.7 TC, DA14 and DA50-200 and I could use those lenses as if they were full frame.


That would be interesting to see with a tc

Of just use crop mode.


That would be a possibility, but with those pictures that were posted, ill just be keeping the lens on the k3. Might consider selling both the k3 and the 16-85 as a bundle depending on what i think after i do a full comparison between crop, full frame, and medium format.

Love the 16-85 on the K3. It works great on the K-1 in crop mode, but as others have said, it just doesn't cover much of the FF sensor. The coatings and optics are very good.
