I own a XL H1 with the standard and the wide angle lens. In addition I have an EF100-400 L IS lens which I attach via the EF-adapter. I get the message “non HD compatible lens”. Does the EF-adapter “degrade” any lens to “only SD”, or are their Canon lenses in the 100-400 categrory about, which will not cause this message to appear and allow to film in HD even with the EF adapter in use. Need the extra focal length for wildlife videos in Africa. Use the SDI output and record on CF card in AJA KiPro Mini with 4:2:2, 10 bit and 200 Mb/s. Like to do the same with a 100-400 lens.
