I have a Tokina 12-24 and plan on upgrading my oldie to a 6D ... and keep the lens at least for now.
I'm aware I won't be able to go below 17-18mm without significant "vignetting", but will anything hit/rub? aka I don't mind limitations, just don't want to break stuff.

It should work well above 17mm, I imagine. My 11-16 works fine at 15-16mm.

Just remove the rear lens cap of your Tokina lens, and move the distance ring back and forth between 12mm and 24mm. While you do this, keep an eye on the rearmost glass on the back of the lens. See how far back it moves. If moves as far at the ring on the base of the lens' mount that presses against the camera's body, it won't interfere with the mirror nor anything else.

Nothing will hit the mirror, even at 12mm, but remember to take the hood off below 20mm to avoid vignetting. I've used it on my 5D for fun; it isn't terribly practical though.

Thanks guys, I figured it was ok but it's always double-checking.

Leopold, I remember seeing your sample shot a while back, it's definitely going to be 18+-24mm. That's alright while I figure out what I want next.
