Bigger lenses look ridiculous, but hey it works.

The downside? Well apart from looking a bit touched in the head, MF only and here's the kicker, you need to pre-set the aperture on a Canon camera, since Canon has done away with the aperture control ring on their EF lenses.
 
Same Wife, Same Christmas Tree, New Lens Adapter

Another thread bump - Whimsically I just purchased this lens adapter - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ENPYMLG/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
since I have some Canon EF glass I use on my Canon 5D bodies. Ya know, the results were more impressive than I expected. Here's a shot , (Yup, same tree, same wife :wink:), shot with the adapter and the inexpensive Canon EF 50/1.8 sometimes referred to as a disposable lens or as the "nifty fifty". The focus assist magnifying ability on the XE-1 was very helpful especially with the very limited depth of field.
I thought you might enjoy seeing the results.
