so the questioning begins.

The Canon HJ11 is a pro-grade lens system. At well over US$10,000 (previously owned price), this is a very high-end piece of equipment.

What camera is the lens connected to? Generally, the HJ11 lens system would be used with very high-end cameras or camcorders with a bayonet mounts and 2/3" CCD imaging chips at the focal point. This sort of gear is not *normally* a discussion item in this consumer/prosumer-grade equipment focused forum.
