50mm is a great walk around lens.

If you want to try wider, a 17-40 would work well with your primes.

I never liked the 24-105 except on full frame. It makes a nice single lens combo with the 6d particularly because the 6d is slightly smaller than the 5dII/III. The 2.8 zooms add a bulk that can make the camera feel slightly out of balance. Personally I think I'm more creative with pretty much any other lens, but if walk around is what you want, it can do that really well.

24-105L is an ideal walk around. If you want something small, I would recommend the 35/2. I was not a fan of the 24-105 or the 35 on the crop, but I really like them on FF.

I use the 24-105L IS and 100-400L IS as "walk around" lenses with my 6D.

Tamron 28-75 or even a 24-85 if you use RAW, LR and the lens profiles

IMO the 24-105L would be hard to beat for a general all-purpose walk-around lens for the 6D. I like to use the 17-40L but the 24-105L would be my suggestion.

I find the 24-105 a bit unbalanced on the 6D, plus it makes the combo bigger, which is why I mentioned two smaller lenses.

24-105 for versatility.

The EF 24-70mm f/4.0L IS USM is ideal for the smaller form factor of the 6D, albeit a bit pricy still.

Looking at your other lenses I would pick a 28mm.


I always try to go for a 3 set of lenses and 28-50-100 is a classic one.

35mm is nice as well but I.M.O to close to 50mm.

I have a 28mm, 35mm and 50mm and always combine the 28 and 50 together. The 35mm I take when I only use one lens.

It is my preferred set at least


Looking at canon's offers on 28mm lenses, I would go for the 28/2.8 IS. The 28/1.8 isn't that good and the new 28 seems to do better.

With my 5D2, I much prefer the 28mm 2.8 IS over my 24-105L for walkaround. The 28mm 2.8 IS is so small and light that it is a pleasure to have around. Makes the 24-105L seem like a beast.

The 28mm also works great for events. Shot a wedding and b-day party with just it. Worked great.

The only time I reach for the 24-105L is oddly enough for portraits (senior, baby.) I guess also for landscapes, but I haven't done much of that recently.

I used my 70-300 non-L as a walkaround on a 60D of all things in Singapore... somehow it worked out
