Thanks for the replies .

My priority is how the 2 cameras compare in IQ .

Since both have good IQ you should probably decide which you prefer from a handling POV. IRC, I preferred the images my X100 took over my XA1, but honestly in a blind comparison I doubt I could tell them apart. Also, the XA1 is 16MP while the X100 is 12MP.

Does the X-A1 share the same 'legendary' Sony 16mp sensor used in the Nikon (and I think Pentax) dSLRs? 'Legendary' as in the ability to pull amazing detail from underexposed areas when using RAW.

Don't know, but the X100 has a sensor specifically designed for its lens.
