you happy with your decision that you purchased the XA-1 and did not spend the extra money for a XM-1?

Would you make that same choice again?

Very much so. I actually got it so I would have a Bayer alternative to use with Fuji's lenses. Ultimately, it is very close in performance.

That flys in the face of a lot of X Trans worship here.

I'm not anti-Xtrans. I just replaced my X-E1 with an E2 and recently picked up a X100s which I love. Having said that, choosing between the XA-1 and X-M1 was a no brainer to me. $200 cheaper (even more now) and a chance to play with a conventional Bayer RAW converter are too huge pluses.

My thoughts as well actually. It is a fun and cheap change of pace from the bigger badder cousins.
