This thread really got my motor running...I'm thinking of going all the way back to a Pentax DSLR and the 31 and 77 Limited, two of my all-time favorite lenses. Thanks for the mini-review!

Ohhhh wow. But then why doesn't the rendered oval highlight stretch into a circle along with the in-focus elements when the resulting filmed image is processed??

I guess what I mean, though, is, does the camera successfully stop down the 40 in TV mode? That is, it knows how to control aperture, even though there isn't an on-camera dial for it?
