I have an older 3x wide angle zoom from the XL1 that seems to work pretty well with the new XLH1, I'm aware that there might be some resolution issues bus has anyone use the older lenses on the new camera.

Thanks for your help

The 16x Manual works great. It isn't "officially" an HD lens
but it works fine. It has a nice look to it and is fairly cheap
as well.

I've also used the 16x manual servo on the H1. Great images for sure. Very sharp and crisp. The camera does say "HD incomatible lens" when it first turns on, but it goes away.

Never used the 3x on the H1. I have heard it's a little on the soft side. Not tht that's a bad thing, more of a personal preference.

Has anyone tried using the old 14x manual zoom lens with the XLH1. I had one for my XL1s and found it to be much sharper than the 16x manual zoom. And the 14x was a totally manual lens with no power zoom.

Just wondered if anyone has tried it on the XLH1 and it it worked.

Best,
-Tim
