This is the original XA, and the only Olympus XA series camera to offer true rangefinder focus coupled to an incredible, legendary lens.
Developed in the late 1970s by famed Olympus designer Yoshihisa Maitani, the original Olympus XA is a true legend in film photography. Its incredible 6 element/5 group 35mm F/2.8 lens is capable of producing unbelievably sharp images, and the fast aperture allows for easy low-light shooting.
