Don't a bunch of the ZWO cameras come with a wide angle lens?
The FoV of your Rokinon 12mm will depedn on how big the sensor of the ZWO camera is. The closer the ZWO sensor is to full frame, the closer the FoV will be to what you get from your 6D.
There are FoV calculators on the net or you could entry the lens and the ZWO camera info into Stellarium and get a visual feeling for what the FoV will be.

A fisheye lens has a large amount of barrel distortion, unless a FOV calculator takes this into account it will underestimate the actual FOV.
