You got it wrong. Canon EF-S lenses cannot be used in full frame bodies without damaging them. As per full frame lenses both Canon and Nikon have very good choices.

Yup.  No one suggested using EF-S lenses in Canon FF camera.

If OP knows he is going down FF upgrade, he can buy FF lenses and use in his upcoming APS-C camera until he upgrades to FF camera in the future.  The "problem" with Nikon is that there are more available DX lenses.  Unless someone is absolutely sure he wants to upgrade and is willing to pay the addition cost for FF, Nikon buyers can end up with DX lenses due to the cost.   So Nikon users on upgrade path needs to be really disciplined in buying lenses.
