I think we can safely conclude that the DA50/1.8 is a very useable lens on full frame. I would certainly shoot it in full frame mode if I had it.

When I went shopping for an autofocusing nifty 50, I purchased both a DA 50 1.8 and an F 50 1.7 from a forum member here. He was upgrading lenses and had used both on his K-1. His comment was that the DA provided less vignetting wide open than the F. And both were quite usable.

I've got both the plastic 35 and 50 and prefer the 50. I wish there had been a plastic prime in the 20's that was a nice as the DA 50 1.8.

+1, it is perfectly fine on the K1 in FF mode. The 35 isn't bad either. Having the 150-450, the lightweight of the DAs is a great plus. As pres589, I'd love a similar 20 or 15.
