You'll have to crop the vignetting but it will work.

It works and will not damage anything, but it vignettes badly. It is not designed for a full format camera.

Yeah, according to Sigma's site, "for use with smaller chip APS-c and 4/3 cameras only. http://www.sigmaphoto.​com/shop/30mm-f14-ex-dc-hsm-sigma (external link)

Like Velorium said, you will have vignetting on a full frame camera with any lens that is specifically designed for APS-C cameras.

You can still try it on just for fun, it won't damage anything and you may end up liking the results after cropping.

I have a 10-20 and it is yuck on my 5d , I think a 24-105L would be good for video and most of what I shoot.
I have my 17-55 and 7D if I need 2.8 .

too much gear..

It works, but not very well.
The 30mm should be better though.

That's not a safe assumption. My Tokina 50-135 vignettes almost as much as your 10-20 when I put it on my 1Ds.

I had the 30mm and tried it on my 5D - it works ok but with vignetting as described but it's not as bad as shown on the 10-20 (which I also owned and tried on a 5D). It's usable but I wouldn't buy one for sole use on a 5D - Works a treat on a 7D though...
