That looks really, really good. How is the AF compared to x100, for instance?

I only have 16-50 lens so far (35 1.4 is coming in the mail). I can't wait to use the 35 1.4 on XA1 because 35 1.4 is a magical lens and everything comes together with it.

The AF with 16-50 is clearly faster than X100. It also feels faster than my fomer XE1 with 18-55, however I don't have the XE1 now so I am going by memory.

One thing with XA1 is that it is so small that it might be difficult to hold at first. However, I happened to own a thumb grip http://www.amazon.com/Fotodiox-Mirrorless-Digital-Cameras-Type-A/dp/B00D62VZBW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1381036072&sr=8-2&keywords=thumb+grip

that I tried to use with XE1 before, but it always fell out from the hot shoe because it was too loose. With XA1's hot shoe it goes it perfectly and stays in. With thumb grip, it is very comfortable to handhold.
