    My other EF-S lenses don't hook up to my 35mm Canon EOS Elan II camera, but the Sigma 10-20 does... There is obviously a ring around the frame, but you can still get quite a bit wider than using the 10-20 on a crop body. I haven't developed any film yet, but I am sure it will be intense! Just wanted to pass along this cool news, in case nobody has tried this.

    The EF-S mount is slightly different, because if you did mount an EF-S lens to a full frame or 35mm film body...the rear element might interfere with the movement of the mirror and possibly damage it.

    I believe that most/all 3rd party lens makes use the standard EF mount (not EF-S) so you can mount them to all EOS cameras, but you do end up with a circle image.

    Wow, If I am correct, that would be like a 6mm on my 40D!

    I want to see pictures!

    yeah I used a sigma 30mm on my f5. Worked fine and I even liked the black circle.
