If you type ?as.data.frame and ?data.frame you can see there are
differences. data.frame() can take more than one "data parameter".

#producing different results:
data.frame(c(1,2,3), c("hello","world","!")) 
as.data.frame(c(1,2,3), c("hello","world","!"))

there are differences (in parameters) for "as.factor" and "factor" as well.
Type ?factor
