Not really, because most of those lenses will not cover a full frame anyway, so effectively they are being used right to the edges. The only one that does, to my knowledge is the 16-35L. The canon 10-20 and sigma are all crop frame lenses.

Really? What is the crop factor on them? When used on a full-frame camera with the crop worked in, does a 10mm actually look like a 10, or more?

Kind of annoying because, I've got the cheapy 55mm Canon prime lens, but on my camera, it's like an 88mm which makes it harder to use, especially indoors.

They're still rated the same way. 10mm is 10mm, which on the APS-C is 'like' a 16mm on a full frame. Consequently, a crop-frame lens will vignette on a full frame chip.

It is annoying sometimes, but I think full-frame would annoy me now, because aps-c closely resembles a 35mm motion picture cam, and to know what a 50mm is like on a cinema camera is more helpful to me.

I have never flown with a 5D but I bet it's much better for AP/AV because you can get a wider view without needing a super wide lens.
