Default I have a Canon CL 8-120mm AF Macro lens, Can I use it on my 400D?

It says Canon Zoom Lens CL 8-120mm 1:1.4-2.1 on it and VL 15X AF macro on the side. The VL is in a red oval.


Is there anyway I can use it on my 400D using an adapter and would it actually work well enough?

It's a lens for video cameras which have much smaller sensors. Even if it works (certainly no AF or aperture), you'd cover only the very center of your sensor.
