Seems that you'd be right....

it's not compatible per Sigma. you would probably get a lot of vignetting using this lens on full frame

ugh, I was hoping this was a thread where someone had done it...

the 8-16mm is an EX DC lens. In sigma speak DC = crop specific (in terms of the image circle, all their lenses will mount on any canon), DG = FF.

but, as mentioned, it WILL mount and give you black hard vignettes (I'd assume) on FF. But here's the sneaky trick; get a kenko 1.4 teleconverter and slap it on there... It's got a recessed element so it WILL mount to a UWA lens and it'll work on FF for you then covering the whole sensor. I've done it with their 10-20 before as well as canon's 10-22.

But at the end of the day do that math and compare it to their 12-24 EX DG (DG=FF remember) and it's the same thing. If you want wickedly wide on FF that's the widest available anywhere.

It's not compatible. It's designed for APS-C sensors.

The full-frame equivalent is the Sigma 12-24. That lens will get you essentially the same angle of view range on the 5Dmk2 that the 8-16 will on your 60D.

I just upgraded to the 5d mark 2 from a t2i. I have the Sigma 8-16 and I was wondering the same thing. I can confirm that the sigma mounts perfectly on the 5d mark 2 and takes great pics at the 16 mm position on the lens. At 14 mm you start to see a slightly dark rectangular boarder and it gets worse as you go to 8 mm. There is no risk to camera damage on any mm setting. AF works well.

Only canon make EF-S lenses. No one else has ever bothered.

And as such they will all mount on EF bodies. Some may foul the mirror but its unlikely.

I've shot a 10-20 on a 5d2 with interesting results.
