    WTB: Olympus XA 2 (...or trade for one)

    Hi,

    I am interested in an Olympus XA 2. I've had an XA and found it rather difficult to use because the rf patch was dull and the focusing was a pain.

    Does anyone have an xa2 they are willing to part with? I have alot of gear I can trade but can also purchase the camera as well.

    Thanks!

    What do you have to trade? I have an XA2; it's a fantastic camera but I haven't used it since I got my XA4. I also have an XA and I never use it because it's too fiddly.
    f/22 and be there.

    Same story as BetterSense; I'm using the XA4 and and have a spare XA2. I already sold my XA though.

    I'm open to selling or trading my XA2 at this point. What do you have to trade?

    Okay...So I've had time to snap a few iphone shots of the gear I have available for trade.

    Photoflex MX35: This camera is very similar to the 135 Holga except it has adjust able apertures (that actually work) and a hotshoe. I believe this camera was never used when I purchased it and I've only had time to run 1 roll through it. Condition is like new. Comes with pouch and original box




    Gossen Lunasix Light Meter In excellent working condition. A battery adapter will most likely be needed for accurate readings but everything is intact and in great condition. Comes with plastic case.



    Praktica FX3 This is a quirky 35mm SLR with a waist level viewfinder that accepts M42 lenses. Condition is excellent although I have never shot with it. All speeds seem to be on point though. If you have a collection of M42 glass or are just looking for a fun new toy this should be a blast to use. Comes with 50mm lens and leather case.





    Quantary 135 f2.8 lens (Nikon F Mount) Nice condition fast tele lens for Nikon Mount SLR's.





    - Please let me know if you have an XA2 you'd like to trade for any of these...I am also willing to sell these items too.
