Thread moved from 5D Mark II to Still Crazy.

Thread title changed from "Will this work or not?" to "XL lens to EF mount? Will this work or not?"

Sorry, but a Canon XL lens (assuming that's what you mean by 3x) will not create an image circle large enough to be used by a full-frame D-SLR (or any D-SLR for that matter).
