I just got my 6D from using the 7D. Heard that when using this lens the back of the lens will be in contact with the mirror? Is it true?

I also read that it can be used and it's sharp even.

No, that is not true for this lens.
It would be true with Canon EF-S lenses, if you could mount them on a FF body. EF-S lenses extend further into the body than EF lenses do, but the tokina is safe. You will get serious vignetting, as I recall, below 14mm focal length.

Yep, second Hairy_Moth's post. It will mount, no mirror contact, but will vignette heavily past a certain focal length.

Yep, +2 on this. It will physically fit and operate fine, but will vignette below about 13-14mm. You can go a bit wider if you take off the hood. I use it on my film body fairly regularly. It is only Canon's EF-S series lenses that will not physically work on FF bodies.

You can use it at 16mm but corner sharpness is quite bad. I would sell it and get a 17-40L instead, way better for FF.
