I have the NEX-6 and Speed Booster. I use it with OM and Nikon MF lenses, and it's just plain awesome. Small, sharp lenses, on a small body. Nothing like a fast small prime, with full frame DOF and an extra stop of light.

I wouldn't want to use a Canon zoom on it, though. It'll be very much out of balance, and the weight of the lens pretty much negates the biggest draw of a mirrorless camera, which is the small size.

If you really want to use a quality Canon zoom, I would just use the $600 you'd spend on the Speed Booster and rent or even buy a Canon 60D or similar DSLR. You'd have an easier time using the big lenses.
