Any way to use EOS lens ?

Is there any way to use canon eos lens? Maybe an adapter or home made rig? I have a 24-70 2.8L , 70-200 2.8L and a 50 1.8 . I could probably get a Letus adapter right now if I didn't need to buy extra len's.

Thanks Joey

EF adapter

I emailed the maker of the letus35 to have an EF mount put on the in place of the FD mount. he put the EF mount on a letus35 FE for I think 20$ more. I have Canon EF 28mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.8. Its great. I can change the lenses with my canon digital as well. a very nice option. I am not worried about the F-Stop change because I figured I'd be shooting wide open because of the light loss.

Check out http://www.wampictures.com and click on the Brandon Heath Video. I shot this with the EF 50mm and the 85mm

Hope this helps.

This post is music to my ears. I have a good 28mm 1.8F that would look great on my letus. And a canon fd 28mm 2.8F that is dreadful, ( noisely, soft, given up on)

Ditto! I have a few EF lenses from my 5D still camera that I'd die to use with my XH A1. I am drooling at the idea of using my 85mm f/1.2 L for shallow DOF work!

I'll email and ask for an EF-fitted Letus.

Nick

Edit: I just realized that the 85mm f/1.2 that I was referring to would probably not work with the Letus, since this particular lens uses focus-by-wire even for manual focus. :-(
