Has anyone used the Optex Arri PL lens adapter for the XL1 or XL2 cameras? These adapters are far cheaper than the Mini35 adapter and I want to know if they work well and have high quality.

Thanks

I don't believe Optex is with us anymore. I'm also not sure which houses rent the adapters out for use with the PL lenses if at all.
As far as the quality goes you only need look at 28 days later to determine that. Considering it was shot on a first generation Canon XL, I was fairly impressed.
There was another company making PL mount adapters but I forget the name. Sorry.
Time to Google it!

---They're straight mechanical adaptor rings. No optical jiggery pokery involved.
