No this lens is built for the EF-M mount, you would need one that is built for the EF mount since you are using it on a Canon 6D which is a Full Frame sensor.

will this lense vignette with the BMPCC6k?
Asked by: Rodrigo
The Venus Optics Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens for Canon EF-M is not compatible for use on the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K. The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K uses the Canon EF and EF-S lens mount, while the Venus Optics Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens listed above is designed for the smaller Canon EF-M lens mount. There is no lens mount adapter designed to connect EF-M mount lenses on the larger EF/EF-S lens mount.

Will this vignette if paired with a Metabones speedbooster on the bmpcc 4k?
Asked by: Red
This is a Canon EF-M mount lens, it is not an EF lens. There is no adapter we are aware of that allows you to use EF-M lenses on the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with an MFT mount. However, Venus offers this same lens for MFT cameras, it is B&H # VE928MFT. You can connect the link below directly to the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. https://bhpho.to/2Xi9JmU

Will the 9 mm Laowa work with the Laowa Magic Shift Converter?

The Laowa Magic Shift Converters are lens mount converters. This lens, Venus Optics Laowa 9mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens for Sony E being an E mount, cannot converted to any other mount.
