The purpose of this thread is to get a poll of some common lenses people use with Canon 6D. The objective is not to gather just the list of lenses people use but if they have any comments about some of those lenses as to why they are more appropriate for 6D or how 6D makes those lenses shine in a new light



I use the same 3 primary lenses with the 6D that I used on my older full-frame 1Ds Mark II. Specifically, they are the 17-40 f4 L, 24-105 f4 IS L, and 70-200 f4 IS L.  The superior high ISO performance of the 6D made this "f4 trilogy" of L lenses even more versatile than they had been on the 1D.

I also own a number of good primes and the 70-200 f2.8 L IS Mark II. I prefer to use them, however, on either my APS-C (40D, 60D) or 1D (Mark III and Mark IV) bodies.

One exception to this is the 85 f1.8, which is good on ANY body.
