Best lenses for your Canon EOS 6DBy Kevin Carter - Tuesday July 09 2013 Lens Recommendations
Best Primes for the Canon EOS 6D
While the 20.2M pixel count of the Canon EOS 6D seems a little modest, it’s quite clear from the high DxOMark scores that the sensor is capable of delivering very high image quality and resolution. If you’ve been following these reviews you’ll have noticed that the same lenses performed repeatedly well but what is a surprise is that just how close the scores are against the far pricier Canon EOS 5D Mk III. As one might expect, Canon’s L-series lenses perform very well, as do newer models from the firm and those made by third parties.
Best Zooms for the Canon EOS 6D
It comes as little surprise to learn the same zoom lens models appear with a very similar ranking, although it is a shock to see the much-vaunted Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM equaled by the new Tamron in our benchmarks, even if there was only one point in it before. In general, however, we’re not seeing any difference in performance over the Canon EOS 5D MK III with the less capable lenses, and even with the best lenses there’s only the narrowest of margins between them.
