Can I do anything with my 16mm lenses?
 
I was wondering, just before I sell all my 16mm gear, should I keep the lenses? I've got c mount, arri bayounet and camiflex mount lens options. Is there anything I can do with these? What sort of mounts are available for the XL2?
Thanks in advance Stephen

There seems to be all sorts of adapters available. For example, have you seen this

I know there are PL to Canon adaptors. You could also buy or rent the Mini 35, but I am not sure if it is going to work with Cameflex mounts, I think it is just PL and Bayo.

Check out the ZGC website as mentioned above. And do a Google search on the Mini 35 (which ZGC also carries). In fact, you might want to contact ZGC since they deal with the Canon XL2 as well as movie lenses, they probably will be able to answer your question pretty fast.
