I keep hearing that the EFS lens rear element sticks out abit and will crash the mirror, I think perhaps Canon perpetuated that possability when they first came out with EFS or someone made it up trying to explain why Canon needed to create a new mount. I don't believe this is a reality. You can mount a Sigma 8-16mm wide angle APC lens on a Canon full frame without issue. They where just the first to release APS-C specific lenses and I think Canon just wanted to avoid tech support calls when people couldn't understand why they did not work well on thier old film cameras.

Well, the mount is the same on Canon APS-C and FF cameras, too, but the EF-S lenses often are designed in a way that the rear optical element sticks out a bit (especially wide angle lenses), so that the mirror of a FF camera would collide with the rear lens of an EF-S lens. How is that handled in these Nikon FF cameras?
