On Pentax dSLRs, users will see a very typical 27.5mm-84mm zoom range. I've been hearing alot about 'DA' and 'EF-S' or even the 'DX'. I guess its probably widely known about the vignetting problems associated with attaching APS/APS-C sized lenses onto full frame 35mm cameras. Anyhow I thought it might be interesting to see how it really looks like so here it is.
