1. 24mm and wider: Here are the choices I have on my (long) list: FD 24/2.8, Yashica 24/2.8, nikkor AI/non-AI 24/2.8, Tokina RMC 17mm FD mount, Rokinon 14mm.

In addition to the FD issue, you have to be careful with Nikkor and Olympus wider angles and your 6D. Some of these lenses have metal protrusions that interfere with mounting or mirror clearance.

With Nikkor? Only some fisheyes have that, and they protrude in such a huge extent that one can't make a mistake!

10mm fisheye

8mm fisheye

6mm fisheye

All normal Nikkor wide angles will work without problems.

Pentax K/A mount lenses will need (destructive) modification.

3. A standard zoom: ... Vivitar 28-90/2.8-3.5

The Vivitar has a lot of vignetting on FF.
