The X-A1 is one of the more interesting cameras in recent years. Weight and size are similar to M43.

That is true.  I have X-A1 sitting on my shelf next to X100 and next to Panasonic G5, and X-A1 looks truly tiny.  It is very light and when you carry it, you don't even know its there.   Can't wait for my 35/1.4 to arrive (probably tomorrow).     I don't have Sony NEX anymore (I used to own NEX 5n and NEX 7) but from memory XA1 feels smaller than even NEX 5n.

One thing it is that it is so small that at first I thought the grip was not comfortable.  However, I installed the thumb grip in the hotshoe and now it is much more comfortable to hold!
