One of my favourite lenses -- love that focal length/aperture combo!

Does anyone have any experience with this lens on a APS-H sensor lens? What about full frame?

I think it works on a 5d though, could be mistaken

"It will produce massive dark corners if used on a full frame camera" according to Kurt Munger.
Same for APS-H sensors.

You can do this with some 3rd party zooms designed for APS-C, e.g. the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 has acceptable vignetting on FF at 16mm and works as a 14-16 on APS-H, but I think for primes you're out of luck.

I have used this on a 7D.  Very sharp lens.  I found the AF to be hit and miss, especially in lower light.  When it is on - wow, super sharp - or if you manually focus. 

It is easy to miss shots due to missed AF.

One of my favourite shots from a night out playing pool with my buddies.  The sharpness quite surprised me.

I have shot with this lens on the 1.3 crop on a 1D Markiii and comes with some amazing results the corners are not tack sharp but it you crop the photo just slightly it makes all the difference...

Bodies: Canon 7D and 5D Markiii - Lenses: 70-200 2.8L, 50 1.2L, 30 1.4, and 10-20 3.5 - Then flashes, strobes, stands, etc....
