Lens Converter

On December 25:

Santa fell down my chimney then by using some secret power he extracted his lively little self from the inside of my furnace. Then what to my wondering eyes should appear but a new Lens Converter under my tree. Proof that indeed Santa knows exactly what all little boys and girls want/need for Christmas. Further proof that my wife and santa are good friends.

Has anyone used the converter with other than Canon lenses. I have a number of lenses by others i.e. Sigma that work very well on my Canon D20 stills camera.

I'd hate like heck to be the one to find out no they don't work but fry innards in your XL2

If you are talking about the Canon EF adapter XL, I can confirm that it is compatible with all EF-lenses that have the Canon SLR mount (all EF-lenses that fit your Canon 20D)

Personally I have the same SLR as you (20D), and I am using my ef-lenses with my XL-2 as well. I have both Canon and Sigma lenses.

Note that the IS will not work when using your ef-lenses with your XL-2!
