Well, the lens is a f/1.4, so I don't expect it to be small.
Regarding the build quality: Before I got my Bessa R3a, a lot of people here derided the build quality. However, I've thought it to be pretty good. It's obviously not a Leica, but it's much better than typical cameras of today.
Where would you put it on this scale. (just my own, feel free to argue)
0 - Holga
1 - Disposable
3 - Bessa L
4 - Entry level DSLR
6 - Sony Alpha
7 - Bessa R3a, Nikon D700
8 - XPan
9 - Zeiss Ikon
10- Leica MP
How would you compare the quality to your XPan? I imagine similar, since they are both made by Fuji
