One more macro option for the EF adapter. The Fotodiox C-mount EOS adapter works fine on my XL2. Use a 50mm TV lens as macro. No vignetation!

Does anyone know if you could use an m42 lens with a nikon adapter for the XL series? My XL has a Nikon adapter, and as I have loads of old m42 lenses I was wondering if I could attach them to the camcorder via another adapter. This would mean 2 adapters between the camcorder and lens, although only one will have glass in.
You can use a M42->Nikon adapter that has a glass element to retain infinity focus, but you will lose image quality. Just give it a try... the adapter is only $10- on Ebay.

Guys,

I'm thinking about picking up an XL1. Do they have autofocus and will the quality be as good as (I don't know) the XL2?

I think they have autofocus. The XL1's quality doesn't look too good these days. It was replaced by the XL1s which cranked out a better image. Then the XL2 had 16:9 chips and looked significantly better, but still standard definition. I thought the XL2 was the best looking of the 1/3" chip standard def cameras.

This helps a lot. I was considering one but will now pass on it.

Thanks!
