    Hi All,

    I have for sale a very nice shape Oly XA with matching case in plastic hard case with manual. I bought this about two weeks ago and the controls are just too small for my arthritic sausage shaped fingers. Lens is clean and clear and all seems to function 100%. I'll throw in a couple a rolls of HP5 as well.

    Asking $60 shipped in the US. Foreign PM for quote.

    Offers gladly accepted. Also will to discuss trade for a Canon Elan 7E.

    The Fine Print:

    Paypal only please. Item will ship via USPS Priority Mail Insured. I will gladly ship overseas but will only put accurate values and description on the customs forms. All items sold AS-IS. I have 100% positive feedback on ebay as jmooney776.

    I had one for years, they are capable little cams. Alas, I got rid of mine for the same reason. Very good price for a very good camera.

    Suggest you have a look at the similar XA2/XA3. These have the identical clamshell design,
    program AE exposure and simple zone focus - one easy to use lever, three easy to see symbols.
    Focus even resets to hyperfocal distance each time you close the camera. Very clever!
    The 35/3.5 lens is very good. IMO these are great carry everywhere pocket cameras.

    Had an XA-2 as well, let it go a while back. I have an auto-focus pocket camera now(aside from my 4x5's a pile of 6x6's ans 6x9 and OM's)
