Can you use the 16x manual zoom lens of the SD XL series or does the xl h1's increased resolution make this impractical? If so, is Canon going most likley going to release an HD 16x manual lens? If not would this make the HD 20x zoom that comes with the xl h1 the only lens with an xl mount that is sharp enough to use on this camera? Maybe some of you guys can help me out with this information. -Thank you

There have been several reports of people shooting tests with the 14x, 16x and 3x lenses on the XL-H1 and they've all said, with great surprise, that they perform wonderfully. Biggest concerns were chromatic aberrations. But the charts and test footage yield no problems. It was so surprising that many started questioning the claims made by Canon about the "redesigned" 20x HD lens and whether or not it was really just the stock 20x lens with a flourite layer.

Visit DVInfo.net for those results.

The 16X works great. I have shot all this footage in the links below with the 16X manual.

HERE ARE THE LINKS TO XLH1-16X MANUAL LENS FOOTAGE:
