From my point of view, by attaching a third-party lens to a third-party adapter and the whole thing to the EOS R6 camera, communication on the camera - adapter - lens line was disturbed.

1. Disconnect the adapter with the attached lens from the camera.

2. Reset the camera to factory settings, turn it OFF and remove the battery along with the memory card.

3. In the meantime, get yourself original mount adapter from Canon.

4. Connect a Canon lens with an EF mount to the original mount adapter from Canon, and the whole thing to the camera.

5. Insert the battery and the memory card into the camera and turn it ON.

Start using the camera. If everything is OK with a Canon EF mount lens attached, then attach your Tamron lens with EF mount. If everything is OK in this case as well, then the Viltrox EF-R2 Lens Mount Adapter for Canon EF/EF-S lens and EOS R/RP with Functional Control Ring is to blame.

These are two different links with negative reviews for this adapter.

i did it all and then send my camera Canon Turkey Tecnical Service. My camera's sensor is not working in full performance. They said to me it has to change with new sensor. This is not good for me...
