"I have just obtained a 6D camera that uses EF lens. Is there an adaptor so I can use the EOS lenses from my D600 on the 6D?


Hi Chris,

Thanks for your question about using a lens adapter to fit your smaller EF-S lenses on your larger 6D sensor camera. It's a great question because many of my readers ask similar questions on using the EF-S sized lenses on full sized sensor Canon cameras.

The EF-S lenses (intended for APS-C cameras like your 600D (t3i in USA) produce a smaller image circle of light traveling through the smaller lenses. The circle of light does not cover the larger sensor area of the larger full-frame Canon cameras.

There is no adapter to make it a bigger image circle. I made I short video that many, many of my readers found very helpful in understanding this confusing topic on Canon lenses and their compatibility with Canon camera. Here's the video: Canon EF Vs. EF-S Lenses

Thanks again for asking a good question,
Good Luck,
