L1 & L2 Lenses on XL1/2

I've seen some decent deals on ebay for the L1 video camera lenses. Does anyone know if there are adaptors to alow you to use them on the XL1/2's?

There is no such adapter, nor would you want to do this. For the reasons why, see Don Palomaki's article located at:

You should thank Don Palomaki for writing that article, and it goes back all the way to early 1998, when folks first started asking about using VL-series lenses on the original XL1.
