The 6D does not accept EF-S lenses and there is no adapter. Even if you modify an EF-S lens to fit a full frame body, the image circle is too small to fill the sensor. If you don't have any EF lenses currently, you might want to grab a 50mm f/1.8 to get you started. They're dirt cheap.

No, sorry. EF-S do not work on a FF camera like the 6d.

sometimes you can use a 1.4TC, but those don't work with actual canon EF-S lenses, mainly third party crop only lenses...i'd return the 6D, and wait until you can afford EF lenses to buy it...it's like buying the shell of a car, without having a motor that fits in it...

I scoured the internet for what models people have tested.
On 1.3 crop, the 17-55 2.8 vignettes
on a 5d mk3, the 18-85 works.
60 2.8 works
10-22 works, but only after 12mm, otherwise it hits the mirror.
Tokina works after 12mm, otherwise it hits the mirror)

All of them need modification (not shaving or anything, but removal of plastic )

I really wish the 17-55 2.8 worked, because not only is it very sharp, but it would be extremely wide on a full frame :)

Ok so I'll say it, so you bought a a 6D knowing full well your old lenses wouldnt work ??? ( I'm assuming you knew) What lenses do you have?? do you have a 50 1.8 at least?? Can you sell what you have?? you should have waited and saved a bit more before you bought this camara. Sorry dude but this wasnt planned very well

I may b up against the same thing. I have a T1i and I'm hoping to go to a full frame soon. If I do, the only lens I will b left with is my Tamron 24-70. Will it not work on a 6D?

I bought 6D a couple of weeks ago. I already have 85 f/1.8, 35/2, 70-200 f/4, and 100L. I bought the 6D with 24-105, and now also have a 135L. All good to go.

I also wish 17-55 can work on 6D. Mine is tack sharp. I might get a used 7D for just keeping 17-55. I now need a better wide angle lens. If it can work, then I am complete for my lens set up for the moment.

Your Tamron will work fine. It is Tamrons equivalent to EF.

Saying stuff like that just confuses people. "Works" does not mean you can use the lens normally.
