Canon EF 70-210mm F/4.0 Macro Zoom Lens

Can a Canon EF 70-210mm F/4.0 Macro Zoom Lens previously used on a Canon EOS 630 be used on modern DSLR like the Canon 6D?

YES. Your lens is an EF mount lens (works on a full frame sensor or 35 mm film body) and the 6D needs EF lenses.

Will the lens have any limitations on a digital SLR camera like the Canon 6d or will its functions be compromised?

should function the same BUT it may not be as perfect optically as newer lenses. With film you weren't able to enlarge your negatives in the same way you can with a digital file using your monitor to view at 100%. People like doing that but in the real world you won't print that big with great results.

georgey, the key here is "EF". If the lens in question is labeled EF, it will bolt up. But the real question, like the observation above, is it a good idea?  Smiley Frustrated 

You are the one to decide that. If the results you get suit your needs than go for it. Smiley Happy

I tried this lens on my new Canon 6D and it works fine except that on the Macro setting it labors and has a hard time obtaining focus.  Never could get it to work on Macro and the motor labored.  It worked fine so far on regular focusing.
