L1 & L2 Lenses on XL1/2
 
I've seen some decent deals on ebay for the L1 video camera lenses. Does anyone know if there are adaptors to alow you to use them on the XL1/2's?

There is no such adapter, nor would you want to do this. For the reasons why, see Don Palomaki's article located at:

Chris, Before we can think of it, you've already tried it. Thanks for documenting it here!

You should thank Don Palomaki for writing that article, and it goes back all the way to early 1998, when folks first started asking about using VL-series lenses on the original XL1.

Thanks for the info.
