    Well I wonder if anyone still even has a Canon XL2 anymore. I just have one simple question. Does anyone know of an adapter that lets you put the Canon XL2 lens on a DSLR like say a Canon T2i? Or later?

    That would never work. Even if it were possible, you'd get a tiny little circle of image on your T2i frame. The image would be almost entirely black, but with a tiny little circle in the center. So, no, you can't do what you're asking.

    Ok good to know. Do you know of any possible uses for the Lens of an XL2 then? Its still a good lens and I would love to try and use it with another body. One that is an HD camera.

    5 years late to reply, sorry for that, but, no, there is no possible way you could use the XL lenses outside of the XL family of cameras. Maybe the Manual 16XL but again you would have field of view issues given how small the camera's sensors are in the XL family. If you really want to use them, just invest in a XL body of somekind again. The XL1 and XL2 are both under $300 used now which is a major steal compared to what they were new. I paid close to 5 grand for a new XL2 in december of 2006. Loved that camera.
