relay lense for xl1 ??

I`m now following the 35 adapter discussion for about a month. I call a xl1 my one and this week i finished my 35adapter for my smaller sony pc100 with a fiberoptik plate (i hope thats the word for it in English; i speak german) for gg, two 50mm in dia condensors f 80mm. till now it was, thanks to the dvinfo, not such a big deal. the only problem left is: how can i plug my xl1 to the adapter???

on my research i found this link:
http://www.edmundoptics.com/onlineca...productID=1966

it seems to be one part the p+s guys used for the mini35. in my opinion they build there own relay lense.

I spoke to a foto mechanik (hope thats the right word:-). he told me that its not such a big deal to order a xl mount- ring from canon (about 90 euro) and, if you know "how to", to bring the right lenses together in a pipe with the xl mount. maybe some of you have allready build such a lense, or can help to build one, or knows how to rebuild an allready existing lense.

thx
christoph

juan,
don`t worry i will post every progress i make. in english of course. now i know why the send me to school and let me learn english for so long.

now back to business:

last week i was able to take a closer look at the original p&s mini35. i was wondering that the p&s guys just took an existing lense (i was able to read "xenon" on it) and screwed it in a plastiktube with the XL mount on one side and a PL mount on the other side to connect with the mini35. the plastiktube has a f-stop ring, and it still looks very similar to the one edmund optic sells.

so my question is:

does anyone know a lense which is called "xenon"? it looks like a c-mount lense

thx
christoph
