if there will be a FF pentax - will pentax enforce a reduced image from DA40 ?

if there will be a FF pentax - will pentax enforce a reduced image (in camera cropping) from DA40 ? formally it is not a FF lens... what do you think ?

the tradition of pentax is to never leave a lens behind.
i would be that there would be some kind of crop feature similar to the D3

I would imagine an option to "crop" would be optional.

no, that was not the question - the question was - whether will Pentax force the cropping of the image with DA40 mounted on FF body even if DA40 can actually cover the FF (may be to sell a differently labeled DA40 for a higher price ?) or not...

so you think that will allow to get full, uncropped images from all DA lenses on their FF body and let us crop ourselves during PPing ?

Yes, with the option of letting the camera do it for you if desired. It would seem the only logical way to do it to me rather than forcing the crop in camera.

Well, in https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/31629-da-lens-...ts-thread.html, the DA40 only got a + rating from me for FF. There won't be a differently labeled DA40 for a higher price.

Regarding your original question: IMHO, cropping won't be enforced for the RAW format. It may be a flag in the RAW file, and may even be enforced for JPG images, though. One should as well consider that enforced cropping would be too stupid because the APS-C image circle on FF sensor at least supports a 21x21mm square format.
