Canon XL lens adapter?

Anyone know of such a thing?

At $2500, the Canon 3.4-20mm 6x XL lens (for the XLH1) looks pretty sweet.
Any way to connect one of those to my GY HD100?

Mike Tapas, are you listening?

Not at all likely to happen; since the Canon XL lens series does not have a hand grip.

Don't the XL lenses (minus the 14/16x manual ones) also require power to work?

Yeah there's no way this would happen.

ALL servo powered zoom lenses (the stock Fuji included) require power (supplied by the multipin connector cable) to run the zoom servo and iris servo.

Sorry, I guess I worded that and left out the details.

I meant that because the Canon XL lenses are totally servo controlled - so power needs to be there to zoom, focus, and change the iris - there is no way you can use them without power through the pins on the mount.
