xa rf????
In reply to rrr_hhh, Apr 17, 2012

I initially bought the XA over the Minox 35 because of the XA's RF, but after shooting it for a few years decided that it was so horrible that I only shot the XA by scale focus... then I picked up a Minox 35 (scale focus only) and got significally better photos.

I'm like you : I found the old split screen of my Olympus XA very easy to focus manually, but not the actual cameras, although, the magnifier present in the mirrorless bodies is an appreciable help compared to DSLRS.

The lack of distance scales also makes zone focusing more difficult. And on legacy lenses, they are no more directly valid given the crop factor.
