Merlin/Panogear mount supports camera/lens combination at NPP - without modification of rail and /or dovetail clamp - if base of camera to centre of lens mount is 40mm or less AND if lens barrel diameter is 80mm or less.

What do you mean "cannon 5d mark lll with 6d"? What´s "6d"?

I used a 5D2 on a Merlin without issues.

Hello,

As stated on the Panogear's product page:
"Canon 5D MKIII is not compatible in terms of body size, you won’t be able to set the nodal point."

You can use a Canon 5D MkIII with the Panogear, but you will not be able to be at the nodal point when shooting as it is too large. The size and weight limit is reached by the 5D MkII.
So if you are planning on shooting landscapes, you should be fine, if you want to shoot indoor spherical panoramas, it would definitely not be recommended.

As for the 6D, it is lighter and smaller than the 5D MkIII and MkII so it should be compatible.
