OLYMPUS XA (1979) Zuiko 35mm f/2.8 Rangefinder Film Camera
►Released in 1979; Japan
►LENS:

Olympus F-Zuiko 35mm F2.8

►DESCRIPTION:

The XA, introduced in 1979 was the benchmark of the series containing a true rangefinder focusing mechanism and an aperture priority exposure system within its tiny case. It had a six element Zuiko 35mm f:2.8 lens, a CdSexposure meter and a shutter to 1/500.

A detailed summary, technical specification, review and analysis of the XA can be found HERE.

"This is the finest model in the XA range - the original and best. It first appeared in 1978 at the Foto-Kina and came out on the market in the next May.

It has a high-grade 6 element wide aperture lens (F-Zuiko 35mm F2.8), semi automatic aperture preferred shutter system (featuring aperture priority automation), and 85cm to infinity range finder. And of course the revolutionary capsule design.

The camera is capable of taking extremely high quality photographs - certainly rivalling those from the majority of modern SLRs and many Leica and Contax models. A 35mm lens is probably the most usefull focal length for general use - if you need long focus lenses, you are going to have to put up with an SLR with all the weight and inconvenience they bring. The benefits of a camera that can sit in your pocket all day normally far outweigh the lack of long focus lenses and other gadgets."
