Yes some exceptions are not produced any longer, but most are readily available somewhere in shops. If you find some errors, keep them. No whining in this thread.

Not even speaking of M42 lenses.

Pentax K used lens pricing including FF lenses:

Even while some of this data might be incomplete or even some years obsolete, they give a nice view on used lens price levels pre K-1 release, to avoid being ripped off by some gold diggers:

The Sigma 12-24 is FF as well, and I thought the Pentax DA* 60-250 is not FF compatible.

I only put lenses on the chart where I found national dealers where I could buy them. That's not the case for the 12-24. So there is always a grey zone.

If you check my test shots linked above you can see that the 60-250 has strong but very corner restricted vignetting wide open. For me this is more than good enough as that can be corrected in post easily.

I will have to try that when I get a FF. Of course I already have plenty of good FF glass in my sig.

One other thing, the 1.4 AW tc is FF and legacy wise the 1.7 AFA is also FF, so you get to extend things some!

Pentax doesn't have as many lens options available as the other brands do....

Unless Ricoh officially confirms this no DA lens should be considered FF compatible.
Just consider the fact that for all the DA lenses sold trough the years nobody did any QC on FF so as long as they were OK on APS-C they would pass, even if decentering or other defects would make them unacceptable on FF. Same is valid for the teleconverter as well.

I've sold my DA 35 2.4 long before I got my a7r so that's the only one I did not test myself on FF. The other DA primes listed here (my own copies) covered FF without much vingetting but there is noticable drop in sharpness outside the APS-C zone (minimal on DA 70 ltd) , especially the extreme corners which are noticably worse than the same focal length old FA/A/etc lenses. Same for DA 40 ltd that I don't see listed above (it convers FF completely) - sharper in the APS-C zone, but much worse in the corners than the old M 40.

I'm not saying that they are unusable on FF but if they were sold to me as "FF lens" then definately I'd want my money back...

For the DA* 60-250 as I've mentioned elsewhere in the forum - I got rid of the dark corners on FF completely by removing the rear baffle - then sharpness is OK across the frame and does not have that sharpness falloff in the corners like my DA primes.

Does anyone really need all 200 lenses in the Nikon catalog? Pentax has all we really need.

There's ONLY 20+28= 48 current lens options plus 179 older options.

Much too few considering kind of no one outside nerd circles buys more than 3-5 lenses ever.

Many will use a 24-105/3.5-5.6 + 50/1.8 + 70-300 and consider this a complete set. And if they scream for something it will be another 28-300.

Not too shabby if you look at the 4 (D FA/DA) + 12 (FA) current 645 lenses

Plus I'm sure additional lenses will be announced along with the camera itself.

Yeah, I think there's a wink in his comment. Our lens catalog is excellent.

For those who care:
You have given those with terminal LBA a list to check off as they gradually move to acquire everything.

The two D-FA lenses in white type in the uppermost chart - is this a new piece of info that has been leaked, or is that still your best working hypothesis? (Not bothered either way; just wondering whether I've missed something, especially with the quite believable and almost-substantiated rumour going around that the UWA zoom will be a rebadged Tamron 15-30.)
