Welcome to RFF. Those are nice shots, and as you've discovered, the XA is very sweet.

Nice shots, I especially liked the first four!
The XA is a wonderful camera when you consider that it's so small. I take mine with me when I'm not in the mood to carry a bigger system and it performs flawless. The rangefinder on mine is a little dim but I usually stop down so it's not a big problem.

thanks guys
I brought my 35RC before my XA, one day I was so bored at home and saw some website about this tindy little XA and found that was the best pocket camera I should have.
RC is great too, but sometime I like to control the DOF myself rather then the shutter speed. and the battery issue on RC makes me mad...can't find any good replacement here in Hong Kong...

My XA knowledge is none existant, but seeing these shots and a few others on this forum from XAs, I'm mighty impressed. I really don't know anything about the camera. I'll have to do a bit of research
