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.

Discovery is not accidental. We discover only when we make ourselves ready to receive and photographers seek discovery by mastering their craft. But it begins somewhere else. It begins with daisies, kids, awful scenes, falling in love, or growing old. It begins with that which matters to you. And it ends with visual statements that express what matters to you about these things. It is not sight the camera satisfies so thoroughly, but the mind. - Christian Molidor
