Canon VL series lenses were for the L1/L2 series camcorders. It is a different size mount, and the lenses were designed for a single 1/2" CCD, not for a 1/3" CCD with prism.

As far as I know, no one has brought out an adapter that would allow mounting a VL lens on an XL1.

The XL1/XL1s takes XL series lenses and adapters.
