there. . Let's see if I can help you.
Please let me know when you are here.
Is the Tamron a crop frame lens?
I assume it is.
If so, what you can do is tell the camera that you want to use it in 'crop mode'.
Hold on and I'll find that .
Are you there?
It appears that the Canon 6D does NOT crop down the image like the current Nikons.
You are going to have to 'post-crop'. Canon does not have the feature that crops down the image sensor when it detects a crop frame lens.
Nikons all do this.
Full Frame Nikons of course.
You should also be careful that the lens does not make contact with the mirror.
But if you have been using it up to now, you should be ok.
i dont know if the lens is crop frame i bought to use with a canon eos rebel ( 500)
The 500 is a crop frame. The 6D is full frame.
that why i got the 6d, i thought it was the camera that cropped not the lens
The image sensor on the 6D is full frame. That means it is basically the size of an old 35mm negative.
The sensor in the 500 is smaller by a third.
are you a nikon expert? rather than canon?
I am both. I shoot both.
The crop frame lenses have a smaller exit lens. This is the lens closest to the sensor.
So when you use one with a full frame sensor, you cannot fill the frame.
So you will get vignetting
and lose the corners and edges.
Actually, you can't mount an EF-S lens on a 6D but the Tamron appears to fit.
is the only way to avoid this getting a new lens
Other than cropping the photo after you have taken it - either in the camera or by software, yes.
Did you just get the 6D?
just got it, taken 5 shots.if i dont want a EF-S lens what do i want?
Hold on let me pause the timer....
Canon full frame lenses are designated 'EF'.
Are you keeping the 500?
If so, I would suggest a 60d
ok, thanks look like i need to buy an EF lens.
Or a full featured crop frame SLR like the 60d. Slightly cheaper and a few less megapixels but no biggie.
And if you are keeping the 500 then you can share lenses.
If not, then go Full Frame.
