    Which do you guys have? I have an XL2 and can use an EF adapter mount to use EF series lenses. The main thing I'm looking for most is a limited DOF. I don't know much about still photography lenses so any help would be great.

    what distance are you usually at? The camera has a built in 7x factor, i believe, so thats something to take into account

    theres a whole array of quality lenses available, and I'm guessing cost isn't the overwhelming factor

    No I don't think that it has a built in 7x, at least not that I know of. Distance is usually up to what i have to work with, but generally I can get away with doing close ups from about 10-20ft away. Price isn't that much of an issue but I don't want to spend a ton.

    You're right. It isn't 7x. It's more.

    The magnification is at least 7.8x depending on the aspect ratio that you're using. This is because the EF mount lenses are for the 35mm plane and the XL2's image plane is much, much smaller than the 35mm plane. :)
