    The XA was the camera known as the one professional photographers carried as a backup, and the Stylus hasn't earned it's long life and good reputation by being a lemon. Either one is a great camera, but I prefer the control that the XAs give. I shoot only slide film and the exposure on all of them is always right on.

    Within the confines of automatic p&s use, there is little difference between the two - Epic and 35Ti. In every other aspect, there is a world of difference commensurate with the features and price difference!

    You need to be a paid subscriber to use the classifieds to sell things.

    One thing to note is that the Stylus Epic usually tries to use the largest aperture available. Generally that is not optimal for any lens. Not only can the corners be softer, but that means very narrow plane of focus. Also, the flash is on by default.

    A point and shoot is a point and shoot is a point and shoot.

    The flash default is the most annoying thing on the Oly, the markings have worn off the flash button on mine as I turn it off every time I use the camera. I get 'round the maximum aperture issue by shooting ASA800 film in daylight.

    re: flash on by default..

    Actually that is pretty common on the AF compacts. One reason why the older ones (olympus XA, Nikon L35, Canon Af35m?) and the rangefinder compacts are nice.
