Not very likeky

The G6's lens is non removeable and the EF lenses need to have contact pins on their mount connected so they can 'talk' to the camera - are you thinking about reversal rings or manual adapters may be?

Hello Dear NHL

Do you mean it is not possible to use canon L or EF lenses with canon g6 with its high price?

Thanks.

The G cameras havefixed lenses. You can't attach another lens if you can get the first one off.

You can attach tele or wide-angle converters.To do that you need an adapter tube that fits over the lens on the camera. The purpose of the adpter is to provide front threads that converters, filters, hoods and so on can use.

Many prefer this adaper over the plastic one provided by Canon.
