XL1s lens mounts

I have seen and read about various lens mount adapters for the XL1s, some of which offer a very reasonable and acceptable x2 or x1.5 magnification only. But I was wondering out of interest if there is an adapter for Zeiss 120 film lenses, such as Planar T* or Distagon lenes which are all the Zeiss mounts for Hassleblad cameras.

So anyone seen or heard if theres adapters for these lenses out there, cos they are some quality glass!!!

That 80mm lens would become a 576mm lens on the XL1. Unless you are shooting wildlife, or something where you need extreme telephoto, it's pretty much useless.

Yeah but I saw a mount adapter advertised for XL mount to Nikon or Canon that only had between 1.5 to 2x magnification, very acceptable.

http://www.virtualcybervision.com/xl1/canon_ef_to_xl.htm

Surely doing it for a lens like Canon or Nikon would be great having the great skills of german lenses on front of your camera. Even my small Sony camcorder posesses a Carl Zeiss lens. And German lenses are hard to beat. Even just in the filters they have a great white glass, where as someone like Tiffen, has a very slight green tinge to their filters, which is due to their glass. Probably for different sand than the super fine sand the Germans have had access to.

So an XL1s with Zeiss would make a superb combination. Maybe thats one for the future...who knows.

But if anyone sees a mount around in the mean while, let us know!!!

No probs Billy, this is what the community is all about, sharing info. I'm so glad I found this site!!!!

The mounts do seem really cool. I just wish I had some Canon or Nikon lenses, but I shot photos with Minolta 35mm gear and Hasselblad and Zenza Bronica on 120 film. Keep me posted if you hear of the mount for (Hasselblad) Carl Zeiss lenses.

> small Sony camcorder posesses a Carl Zeiss lens

Is it a lens manufactured by Zeiss, or a Zeiss lens design manufactured by someone else?
