Week 247 - Olympus XA
The Olympus XA series were very popular, and the XA2 in particular is easily found for very little money. Arguably the XA is the top of the range, with a coupled rangefinder and aperture prioity automatic exposure, together with a 35mm f2.8 lens. My own favourite of the series is the XA4, which, while it is fully automatic with no manual over-ride, has an f2.8 28mm lens, and focuses down to 30cm.
